When Is the Next iOS Update Coming?


It has been over two months since we received an official public iOS 16 update for all compatible iPhone models. There were some notable bugs in the initial release, but they were fixed in the next few updates.

iOS 16.1.1 is the latest iOS 16 update, and iOS 16.2 beta 3 is available for testing.

So, the big question is: when is the next iOS update coming? Will it be iOS 16.1.2 or iOS 16? And when can we expect the next iOS update release date?

What Is the Next iOS 16 Update?

iOS 16.1.1 was released on November 9, 2022. It has been over two weeks. So, we can expect the next iOS 16 update in the first or second week of December 2022.

As of now, we can expect that Apple will release iOS 16.1.2 as the next iOS 16 update, as iOS 16.2 is still in the third beta phase. However, Apple may surprise us with iOS 16.2.

We have tested iOS 16.2 beta 3, and it is really smooth and stable compared to the previous betas. Plus, some major features and functionalities were added in the latest beta update. If things remain the same, we can also get 16.2.

Hence, it will be either 16.1.1 or 16.2, and Apple will release it in the first or second week of December.

When Will the Next Major iOS Update Come?

If we talk about the next major release for iOS, it will be iOS 17.

Traditionally, iOS 17 will be launched at Apple’s WWDC June 2023 event. However, it will be released in beta for developer and public testing for the first three months after the launch.

According to usual plans, the iOS 17 public update will be released in September 2023, along with the launch of the iPhone 15.
