We would suggest that you install iOS 16.1 and iPadOS 16.1 for security reasons
Three security issues were aimed at the iOS and iPadOS kernel which controls how the CPU (Central Processing Unit) on your device uses its capabilities, and it also manages the system memory, networking and file systems. Since the kernel is used to control all of the demands you make on your phone and tablet, the kernel makes sure that the things you ask your device to do-like open an app-are taken care of.
You should install iOS 16.1 on your iPhone ASAP
So obviously you would hate to see a hacker be able to run any code on your device which is why one of the vulnerabilities that had to be patched. This issue, listed under kernel on Apple’s security advisory, says that an app may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. This means that an app can be forced to run any code or command desired by an attacker. Apple said that the issue was addressed by improving memory handling.
To install the update on your iPhone 8 or later, or your iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 3rd generation and later, iPad 5th generation and later, and the iPad mini 5th generation and later, go to Settings > General > Software update. Even if you tend to stay away from minor iOS updates, you might want to install this one. As for the iPad, it is the first iPadOS 16 update made available to the general public.
The update also includes some new features
iOS 16.1 also includes Live Activities which allows users to follow a sporting event, or an incoming ride share, in real time on the Lock Screen or in the Dynamic Island (for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. With the update, up to six people can share a photo library and can add, edit, caption, favorite, and delete photographs. Once iOS 16.1 is installed, iPhone users will be able to use Apple Fitness+ even if they don’t own an Apple Watch.
And with Clean Energy Charging, another feature in iOS 16.1, the iPhone will selectively charge when lower carbon emission electricity is available. Apple notes that your iPhone will still charge fully before you need it based on your daily charging routine. It is also important to note that this feature is enabled by default on iOS 16.1.
