Apple’s iOS 16.1 beta changes battery icon, fixes copy and paste bug
If you’re annoyed by the new battery icon in iOS 16, we have good news for you: Apple has made it better.
After the notch appeared on the iPhone X in 2017, Apple (annoyingly) stopped showing the battery charging indicator icon in the upper right corner, presumably because of lack of space. In iOS 16, the company brought back the icon, but it’s different, the percentage numbers appear inside the battery icon, which (confusingly) is always drawn as full.
Now, with iOS 16.1 Public Beta 2, the company has finally done what it should have done from the start: it changed the battery icon to slowly “empty” when the battery dies.
Additionally, a charging indicator is now displayed on the lock screen while the phone is charging. It’s not always visible; instead, it appears when the phone wakes from sleep and disappears after a second.
iOS 16 ruined my iPhone’s once-perfect lock screen
Apple also fixed a “copy and paste” bug that plagued iOS 16 users, where a message prompting to allow or disallow pasting would appear too frequently. Your iPhone should now stop asking you for permission to paste every five minutes.
Mike Rumors Another annoying bug that hasn’t been fixed in this release is that the iPhone 14 Pro’s rear camera would shake and buzz when opened from third-party apps like TikTok, reports say. The fix will reportedly roll out in next week’s iOS 16 update.
