Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Arstechnica.com: “iOS 16.1.2 has arrived, and it’s focused on the crash detection feature”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Apple released a minor software update for iPhones today. Unlike many of its other iOS updates, the new iOS 16.1.2 was not released in tandem with updates to Apple's other operating systems like macOS or watchOS.

iOS 16.1.2 primarily does two things, per Apple's release notes: it improves compatibility with unspecified wireless carriers, and it optimizes the Crash Detection feature on the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Some users have complained that non-car-crash scenarios—specifically, rollercoaster rides at amusement parks—trigger the algorithm. But it's not clear whether the optimizations in iOS 16.1.2 address those issues or if they are simply meant to refine the algorithm in other scenarios.

The next iOS update is expected to be much more significant. iOS 16.2 will implement sports scores with Live Activities, allowing users to see live score updates for certain sports games either on the lock screen or in the iPhone 14 Pro's Dynamic Island. It will also include Apple's new Freeform visual note-taking app, lock screen widgets for sleep and medication tracking, additional always-on lock screen customizations for the iPhone 14 Pro, and support for 5G in India.

That update is likely to land sometime in December. In the meantime, here are Apple's brief release notes for 16.1.2:
