Apple will fix iOS 16’s annoying copy and paste prompts

Apple has another bug to fix in iOS 16. Senior manager Ron Huang said a MacRumors Reader that the company will fix the common permission prompts when trying to copy and paste content between apps. This is “absolutely unexpected behavior,” Huang said. While Apple didn’t recognize the problem internally, the manager acknowledged that others were looking into the issue.

Huang has not given a timetable for a patch. Apple is already testing beta versions of iOS 16.1 that could contain a fix, but hasn’t said when it expects to release it.

The bug is the latest of a handful of issues affecting iOS 16 since it debuted earlier this month. iPhone 14 Pro owners have complained about camera rattling on some third-party apps, as well as being unresponsive when transferring data from another iPhone. Apple even had to issue a day-one patch for iPhone 14 models that couldn’t properly activate FaceTime or iMessage. Boot errors are certainly not unheard of for operating systems, but these were more annoying than usual.
