iOS 16 was recently announced by Apple with several new features, among them is a gesture to open clipboard controls, which has been revamped in the new version of the system and is causing an annoying bug in apps that use multi-touch gestures with more than two fingers on the screen.
These issues have caused many developers to send warnings to users of their apps not to upgrade to iOS 16.
According to developers, the bug involves using the 3-finger gesture on the screen to open the iOS clipboard controls as you can see below. The gesture to enable this feature interferes with the functions of these applications that also use multi-touch controls to simulate various scenarios.
Most of the developers who are reporting the problem are from music rhythm games or virtual musical instruments. However, even the native Camera app is suffering from this bug because touching with 3 fingers on the screen could be used to trigger specific functions and now opens the clipboard instead.
Other Apple apps that also suffer from the bug include GarageBand, Safari, and Settings, but many other apps may be affected, as Apple uses multi-touch gestures in several of its native apps.
Unfortunately Apple has not yet commented on the problem, but this is not the first time something of the kind occurs with iOS, since the same bug also affected iOS 13 and was fixed with updates after its release.
