Did you update your phone to iOS 10, only to discover that your Instagram pictures were now zebra-stripped? Or that your Amazon Echo app no longer liked you? You’re not alone. A number of iPhone users have reported that some of their favorite apps had to be uninstalled and reloaded after they updated to iOS 10. While it’s a simple and apparently effective fix, it does cost you any stored information from the app.

iOS 10 update

Yesterday, Apple released an update for iOS 10 that remedies a lot of the more troublesome issues. According to Geeky-Gadget, these fixes include:

  • Improves Bluetooth connectivity with 3rd party accessories
  • Improves AirPlay Mirroring performance when waking a device from sleep
  • Fixes an issue where certain selfie apps and face filters used with the FaceTime HD Camera on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus did not display a live preview
  • Improves performance of sharing websites from Safari to Messages
  • Fixes an issue in Safari that caused web previews in tab view to not display correctly
  • Fixes an issue that caused certain Mail messages to be reformatted with very small text
  • Fixes an issue that caused some HTML email to be formatted incorrectly
  • Fixes an issue that in some cases caused the search field to disappear in Mail
  • Fixes an issue that could prevent Today View Widgets from updating when launched
  • Fixes an issue where Weather widget sometimes failed to load data
  • Fixes an issue on iPhone 7 where Home Button click settings would not appear in search results
  • Fixes an issue that prevented spam alert extensions from blocking calls
  • Resolves an issue that could prevent alarm sounds from going off
  • Fixes an issue where audio playback via Bluetooth would cause the Taptic engine to stop providing feedback for some users
  • Resolves an issue preventing some users from restoring from iCloud Backup

But there’s an even bigger reason to update immediately, and according to a report on a known security flaw by CBS News, it patches a hacking threat.

“The software update patches a security hole that could allow hackers to infiltrate your phone through ‘maliciously crafted’ JPEG photo files, the company said. The flaw was discovered by Marco Grassi, a security researcher at Keen Lab.”
