Yesterday, Apple announced that iOS 16.3 will be available on all compatible iPhone models next week. The build is currently in the beta phase with developers working to ensure the performance and features that Apple promised at its WWDC event last year in June. iOS 16 was released four months ago alongside the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models. While the devices have been received pretty well, some iPhone 14 Pro Max users are experiencing issues where green horizontal lines will flash across the screen. The latest suggests that iOS 16.3 will fix the horizontal lines issue on iPhone 14 Pro Max.
