Apple has another bug to override in iOS 16. Senior manager Ron Huang told a MacRumors reader that company will fix Frequent permission requests when you try to copy and paste content between apps. This is “absolutely unexpected behavior,” Huang said. While Apple didn’t detect the problem internally, the manager acknowledged that others were dealing with the problem.
Huang did not provide a timeline for a patch. Apple is already testing beta versions of iOS 16.1 that could include a fix, but hasn’t said when it expects to deliver the release.
The flaw is the latest in a handful of issues to plague iOS 16 since its debut earlier this month. iPhone 14 Pro owners have been complaining about camera shake with some third-party apps, as well as unresponsiveness when transferring data from another iPhone. Apple even had to issue a day one patch for iPhone 14 models that couldn’t properly activate FaceTime or iMessage. Launch errors are certainly not unheard of for operating systems, but these have been more annoying than usual.
