iOS 16.3 is coming this week. Here’s what’s new on iPhone:


Get ready for the iOS 16 update. iOS 16.3 arrives on iPhone this week, bringing a few new features, a few bug fixes, and a few tie-ins for Black History Month.

The news of the imminent release of iOS 16.3 comes from Apple itself. Apple pushed back the release date in a press release highlighting the company’s efforts on behalf of Black History Month. (opens in a new tab) in February. In addition to spotlighting curated content in the Music, TV, News and Podcasts apps, Apple is adding a Unity watch face and iPhone wallpaper incorporating the colors of the pan-African flag.

Both the Unity 2023 watch face and Unity iPhone Wallpaper require iOS 16.3. And in the fine print of Apple’s Black History Month announcement yesterday (Jan. 18), Apple says the watch faces and wallpapers will be “coming next week.” This seems to imply that an iOS update is also coming soon.
