Apple has acknowledged yet another iOS 16 bug affecting iPhone 14 users. This time, the bug has links to cellular data and SIM card support. In a memo seen by MacRumors, Apple acknowledged that some owners of the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may see a “SIM not supported” pop-up message on their phones. According to the memo, after displaying the pop-up message, the iPhone may freeze completely. Apple claims it is “investigating” the issue. However, the company claims that it is not a hardware issue. Thus, it recommends that users should ensure that their system is up to date.

iPhone 14 / Pro series SIM bug temporary fix
In the meantime, as the investigation is ongoing, Apple recommends that users wait a few minutes after this message appears to see if the message disappears. If the message does not disappear, then users should try restarting the smartphone. The restart option is by no means a permanent fix. Thus, users still need to go to an authorized service provider to submit a request for technical assistance.
This isn’t the first time Apple has acknowledged bugs in its latest iPhone 14 series. The new iPhone has been down with multiple issues in the days and weeks after its release. We have seen issues with the device activation and camera shake. The company resolved these issues in subsequent iOS 16 updates. Apple is currently testing iOS 16.1, and the official version should arrive at the end of this month.
According to reports, the iPhone 14 Pro is undoubtedly one of Apple’s best-selling mobile phones this year. The purple version has also become the choice of the vast majority of consumers. The purple AG frosted glass back case has sufficient texture. However, the actual craftsmanship may have obvious defects. Under certain circumstances, the back case will have a large area of paint peeling. So if you have a purple version and the pain peels, know that you are not alone.
