Apple iOS 16 users are allegedly experiencing a bug that keeps asking them for permission when they try to paste something into the app. The Cupertino-based company reportedly added a tooltip in iOS 16 that will ask users for permission when the app tries to access the clipboard, which can store sensitive information. However, some users have reported that their iPhone shows a permission popup every time they try to paste text from another app. The Apple executive finally acknowledged that the feature shouldn’t work the way a recent report claims.
According to report According to MacRumors, Apple chief executive Ron Huang has confirmed that the tooltip is not meant to behave the way it does. Huang reportedly stated that Apple did not encounter this bug during iOS 16 internal testing. However, he said that the company is aware that several users are experiencing it.
In this regard, The Wall Street Journal informed that an Apple representative revealed that Apple will release the iOS 16 update next week to fix this bug. The update is also said to include fixes for a bug that allegedly causes the cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max to vibrate and capture blurry images when using third-party apps.
In addition, several iPhone 14 Pro owners are reportedly complaining that their phones are freezing when trying to restore data from iCloud or transfer data from an old iPhone. The upcoming iOS 16 update is said to fix this bug as well. An Apple spokesperson reportedly did not disclose the version number of the upcoming update.
Last week, Apple released the iOS 16.0.1 update for the iPhone 14 series. The update is said to contain fixes for issues related to activation and migration, camera zoom, and app authentication.
