iOS 16.3 fixes an issue where horizontal lines appear across the screen on some iPhone 14 Pro Max devices when powered on or unlocked, according to Apple’s release notes for the software update, which is in the final stage of beta testing.

iphone 14 pro display problems
Apple acknowledged the issue in an internal note last week and said a fix was on the cards, but it’s unclear what the underlying cause or how many iPhone 14 Pro Max devices are affected. The fix for the bug indicates that it’s a software issue, not a hardware defect, so installing iOS 16.3 when it’s available should resolve the issue for affected customers.

Apple made the iOS 16.3 Release Candidate available to developers for testing today, and the update is expected to be released to the public next week.

iOS 16.3 includes some new features, including the option to use a physical security key as a two-factor authentication option for the Apple ID account, the global availability of Advanced Data Protection for broader iCloud encryption, support for the new second-generation HomePod, and a new Unity wallpaper in celebration of Black History Month.
