Don't Install iOS 16.5 While You're Traveling
If you're preparing for a trip or if you're already on one and you're unable to spend time on the phone with Apple if something goes wrong after the update, you should wait to install iOS 16.5 until a later date.
There's a good chance iOS 16.5 works fine on your iPhone, but it takes a while to install the update and there is always a chance something could go wrong.
You may not want to deal with 1) waiting an hour for an update to install, 2) finding help online or at a store, and/or 3) dealing with apps or services that aren't working.
If any of these things concern you, you might want to hold off until we know more about iOS 16.5 and its performance.
iOS 16.5 has the potential to cause problems and that's probably the last thing you want to be dealing with on a business trip or a trip with your family.
If you're going to be away from home and away from your backups, we highly recommend holding off on an upgrade.

16.1 version is messing with my (encrypt. me) VPN app and my banking app. I have to turn the VPN app off to use my banking app.

Since updating to 16.3.1, my phone keeps freezing/crashing and restarting. Why is this happening??

Too many sites have new emojis as a main reason to upgrade (why?). I was going to blow 16.4 off since emojis are not important until I found much more important reasons that many sites ignore but were covered here.
