Apple’s security notes say this latest update patches an iPhone bug that may have been actively exploited. Apple writes that the bug affects iPhone 8 models and later.

The update could also fix an iCloud issue some users ran into after the release of iOS 16.3. Some users on Reddit and Twitter have said they haven’t been able to back up to iCloud since the release of the previous update.

Another issue that iOS 16.3.1 could address has to do with crash detection on iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models. Crash detection has helped alert first responders to some car crashes, but it has also been triggered when some users ride roller coasters with their phones

Here’s what Apple writes is fixed with iOS 16.3.1.

  • iCloud settings may be unresponsive or incorrectly display if apps are using iCloud.
  • Siri requests for Find My may not work.
  • Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models.
