An annoying iPhone 14 Pro bug will soon be fixed

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are excellent phones, but no phone is totally immune to the occasional bug, and one that’s recently struck these handsets is causing horizontal lines to flash across the screen when they're being powered on or unlocked.

This falls under the category of annoying rather than anything more serious, but it’s still not something you want to see on an expensive new phone, and – as spotted by MacRumors – it’s something a lot of people are reportedly experiencing. But it’s also something that should soon be fixed.

In a memo from Apple and seen by MacRumors, the company acknowledges the bug and says that "Apple is aware of the issue and a software update is coming soon that will resolve the issue."

So it’s hopefully not something you should have to put up with for long if you are a victim, and as it’s a software issue, rather than a hardware fault; a simple software update should fix it.

Exactly when this fix will be rolled out, however, remains unclear, but it could come with iOS 16.3. However, while this is currently in beta, it probably won’t be rolled out properly for at least a couple of weeks, based on how long Apple tends to take with new versions.

Alternatively, there’s a chance the company will release an iOS 16.2.1 with a fix sometime before that.

Analysis: there are bigger changes coming in iOS 16.3

If we have to wait until iOS 16.3 for this fix, then at least it won’t be the only thing we get in this upcoming release, as at least two significant new features are expected as part of it.

There’s Apple Music Classical for one thing, which is likely to land with iOS 16.3. This is a dedicated classical music app, making it easier to find classical music than within the main Apple Music app.

The update is also expected to bring the ability to protect your Apple ID with a physical security key, when using two factor authentication. This is a more secure option than using an authenticator app or your phone number to verify a login.

So iOS 16.3 probably won’t be a huge update like iOS 17 is expected to be, but for some people these additions could make a big difference.

Apple Says 128GB iPhone 15 Pro Limited to 1080p ProRes Video Recording Unless External Storage Connected

ProRes video recording remains limited to 1080p quality at 30 frames per second on the 128GB model of the iPhone 15 Pro, unless the device is recording directly to a connected external storage drive , according to Apple. On the 256GB and higher iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, ProRes video recording is supported in up to 4K quality at 60 frames per second to both internal storage and external storage. Apple does not mention this information on the iPhone 15 Pro's tech specs page on its website, but the limitation is listed when comparing the iPhone 15 Pro to another iPhone model in the Apple Store app, as seen in the screenshot below. The same limitation applied to iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro models with 128GB of storage, but those devices cannot record ProRes video to external storage, so at least iPhone 15 Pro users have that option this time around. The limitation does not apply to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, as that model starts with 256GB of storage. ProRes video fi
