Delhi : Apple released its most recent update today for iPhones running iOS 16.3.1. While new updates are often welcomed, especially those that bring stability and bug fixes, they can also occasionally lead to issues. However, these updates can occasionally make things break, and it appears that's the case with iOS 16.3.1 and Google Photos.

You might be in for a nasty surprise if you've downloaded the most recent version of iOS 16.3.1 because the upgrade breaks Google Photos. After downloading and upgrading to the most recent version of iOS, Google Photos will no longer open and will crash right away. 

Therefore, it could be a good idea to postpone performing this update if you haven't already. The majority of the time, iOS 16.3.1 is a minor update that brings important stability and bug fixes but doesn't add any new features that will be seen by customers. The most recent update, according to the patch notes, fixes:

Crash Detection, which at the time seemed like a fantastic feature, has been giving owners of iPhones in the US false alarms when they are taking part in activities like riding a rollercoaster or doing winter sports. As a result, Apple has been gathering additional information to strengthen its crash detection feature and reduce false positives.

Apple hasn't disclosed how this feature has been improved, so we'll have to keep an eye out to see how Crash Detection responds moving ahead. The most recent update brings optimizations to the feature.

As previously mentioned, if Google Photos is a part of your daily workflow, you might want to wait to upgrade if you haven't already. We'll let you know when the issue has been resolved.
