A serious bug has been discovered on iPhones that have received the iOS 16 update. Here’s how to bypass the problem while waiting for an update from Apple
Lots of customization and noteworthy additions, but also a not insignificant distortion that is affecting the latest release iOS 16.
There is a bug that is troubling Apple users who have updated their iPhones to the new update distributed by the Cupertino company in recent days. Above all because it involves one of the all-in-all central applications in daily use: Apple Mailwhich is the default app to consult your inbox directly from your smartphone.
According to what was discovered by a company engaged in the field of VPNs, two simple symbols would be enough to completely send in crash the application. With consequences that are anything but secondary. To solve, in fact, it will be necessary to delete the program from your iPhone and use some “tricks” that would involve different devices, with the aim of removing the “offending” email.
The error would appear only once the iPhone has been updated to the new iOS 16 operating system, therefore the correlation between the bug – certainly annoying – and the new release distributed by Apple is evident.
Apple Mail bug on iOS 16: how to fix
But what is it more precisely? According to what was reconstructed from the source, there would be a distortion inside Mail app. Basically, you just need to enter two quotes (for example, “” @ example.com) in the message sender field (and therefore, the form “From”) To make the program completely unusable.
Difficult to understand the reason and nature of the bug, but we are confident that Apple is already rolling out an update to eliminate the flaw.
Anyone who receives an email of this type will have to deal with heavy slowdowns to the program Apple Mail, which will make it impossible to use. Unless you delete the application, proceed with the manual deletion of the “offending” email using, for example, your computer and re-install Apple Mail.
At this point we await an imminent fix from the Cupertino company.
The new update iOS 16 has been a reality for several days now and has brought several additions and improvements, including a completely revised lockscreen thanks to the inclusion of widgets as well as the battery percentage (excluding iPhone XR, iPhone 11 and the two iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 13 Mini ).
Apple in the meantime he is working on a new beta version of iOS which, in addition to solving some bugs, will have the advantage of extending the percentage of the battery on the devices currently cut off.
