Apple Confirms iOS 16 Bug Affecting New Device Activation as iPhone 14 Orders Begin to Arrive.

According to Apple, customers activating new iPhones may encounter a problem where device activation fails while using Wi-Fi during initial setup. The problem is “under investigation.”

According to  MacRumors, Apple says that “there is a known issue for iOS 16 that may impact device activations on open Wi-Fi networks.” To resolve the issue, Apple says customers should select ” Connect to Mac or to a PC with iTunes” in the initial iOS onboarding process when prompted to connect to a Wi-Fi network and then return to the previous screen and try again on Wi-Fi until the activation goes through successfully.

Apple noted in the memo there are no current official fixes and that support staff should “not create a repair [case] for the issue.” Unfortunately, the bug is untimely, as customers worldwide begin receiving their iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max pre-orders.

A new iOS 16.0.1 update is available for iPhone 14 customers that fixes activation and migration issues. If you’re facing issues activating your ‌iPhone 14‌ out of the box, you may need to restore with a Mac or PC to iOS 16.0.1 to fix the bug and fully activate your new iPhone.

In a support document, Apple tells new ‌iPhone 14‌ and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ customers that “iMessage and FaceTime might not complete activation” until they’ve updated their new iPhones to iOS 16.0.1.
