Bug around cellular data and SIM card support
Errors in new software releases are not uncommon and iOS 16 also brings some more or less serious bugs. Like right now MacRumors reported, they want to have insight into a letter from Apple, in which the company acknowledges one of the problems. As Apple acknowledges, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may experience the message “SIM not supported” for reasons unknown.
Particularly unpleasant: According to Apple’s previous analysis, after the pop-up message is displayed, the iPhone may freeze completely. In the memo cited, the company emphasizes that a thorough investigation of the problem has begun, but that a hardware error can already be ruled out at this point in time. Conversely, this means that the solution should be delivered with an update for iOS 16 – iOS 16.0.1 and iOS 16.0.2 definitely did not fix the problem.
Wait a few minutes
Apple instructs affected users to wait a few minutes after the message appears and see if it goes away. If this is not the case or if the iPhone fails to function as described, according to the company’s official recommendation, you should not try to repair it yourself – for example with a reset. To solve the problem, one should first turn to official Apple service centers.
A final solution can then be expected with iOS 16.1, which is currently being tested with developers and participants in the beta program. A release can probably be expected by the end of the month.
Additional features from the iOS 16.1 beta scheduled for release:
- Apple had already announced live activities when introducing iOS 16. This allows events to be displayed in real time on the lock screen.
- For this to work, iOS 16.1 also delivers the Live Activities API. This is an interface that also opens up live activities for third-party providers. In this way, real-time updates on game statuses or the delivery status can end up on the look screen.
- With iOS 16.1 it will be possible for the first time to completely delete the wallet app – with the corresponding restrictions on Apple Pay and Co.
- Matter support: Matter is a new smart home connectivity standard that enables seamless and cross-platform collaboration between smart home devices. The start had been postponed for years, but with the delivery of iOS, Matter finally seems ready for public appearance.
- Shared photo albums on iCloud: Photos can now be seamlessly shared with a separate iCloud library and shared with up to six people.
- Charging adjustments: The iPhone should be able to charge with iOS 16.1 when there is currently a particularly large amount of clean energy available in the network.
- With iOS 16.1, the new battery indicator also makes it to other models: iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini.
