4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 16.5 & 11 Reasons You Should
Install iOS 16.5 If You Want Emergency SOS via Satellite
If you own an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max, and you missed iOS 16.4.1, iOS 16.4, iOS 16.3.1, iOS 16.3, iOS 16.2, iOS 16.1.2, iOS 16.1.1 and iOS 16.1, there's some incentive to install iOS 16.5 today.
With iOS 16.1 or later on board your iPhone 14 model, you gain access to Apple's Emergency SOS via Satellite feature.
This is a feature that's exclusive to the iPhone 14 series and it allows you to connect with emergency services while you're outside of cellular and Wi-Fi coverage. You can also open up the Find My app and share your location via satellite with loved ones.
This is an extremely useful feature if you love to go off the grid on hikes/backpacking treks.
The service is included for free for two years starting at the time of activation of a new iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max.
It's available in the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, the UK, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Australia, and New Zealand.

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.

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.
