Apple Addresses iPhone 14 Issue With Software Update: Reports

Apple is said to be releasing a new software update that should address an issue that causes horizontal lines to flicker across the screens of some iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models.

According to Forbes, the iOS 16.3 Release Candidate is now available, with testing showing it fixes the issue, as well as adding important new functionality.

The outlet had previously cited an internal memo confirming that the tech giant was working on a fix and that “a software update is coming soon that should fix the issue.”

MacRumors reported on Jan. 13 that an Apple memo says customers may “report that when they turn on or unlock their phone, they briefly see horizontal lines flashing across the screen.”
