Apparently, the beta version of iOS 16.1 has a bug that causes GPS navigation to lead users in the wrong direction.

iPhone 14 Pro series phones have apparently faced a strange problem in GPS in the beta version of iOS 16.1; A problem that caused the user to be directed to the wrong destination during navigation. Although the GPS of these phones is more advanced than the one used in the two standard and plus models and supports the L5 GPS frequency, but precisely because of this, it has encountered the mentioned problem in the beta version of iOS 16.1. Since the standard and plus versions do not use this new feature, so the mentioned problem is not seen in them either. The beta version of operating systems usually has such small and large problems, it is completely normal. Apparently, Apple is also aware of the existence of such a problem because the number of users who have reported the existence of such a problem is very large. We have to wait and see when Apple releases an update to fix this problem. News has recently been published that iPhone 14 series phones face the problem of severe camera shake when using applications such as Instagram for photography. This bug is also apparently software, but it has not yet been determined exactly what its origin is and when it is going to be solved.

Another problem is not using the free space created after removing the SIM card module, which of course The case is considered a weakness and nothing special can be done to improve it. As you probably know, Apple prefers to use eSIM instead of using a physical SIM card module in the iPhone 14 series phones that are sent to a series of special markets such as the United States. This means that there is no space for placing a SIM card in these products, and the phones only support eSIM.

According to iFixit, this free space has been provided to Apple, which could be used in a better way. but this American company has decided to just fill it with a plastic covered with metal. In other words, it just wanted to fill it, not use it, when it would have been very easy to add both physical SIM support and eSIM. This is what we see in many other phones.

iFixit also noticed during the autopsy of the iPhone 14 Pro that Apple used the Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 modem in these phones. It is precisely because of this modem that the new Apple phones can communicate with the satellite in situations where they do not have an antenna. Although this feature also has certain limitations, such as a long time to communicate with the satellite and send messages in unfavorable conditions (cloudy weather), but in general, it cannot be considered a problem like the mentioned cases.

It should be noted that iOS 16.1 is now available for download, but note that the beta version has bugs and small and large problems that may disrupt the use of the phone. So before you install it, be sure to keep this in mind.
