This new version of operating system from Apple was launched for several compatible iPhone terminals, although not all devices have felt the same way. And from what has been known these days, iOS 16 has some issues that are yet to be resolved.

Some of these iOS 16 issues are not that serious or related to bugs, but the new version of Apple’s mobile operating system now has a new setting. Among these settings are settings designed to improve browsing using mobile data.
