It is always advised to update your smartphone to the latest software version as it holds many benefits such as security enhancements, new features, improved performance, and bug fixes. However, AppleInsider's report has suggested that some iCloud users are experiencing difficulties in synchronizing with iCloud Drive, Photos, and backup upload following the update to iOS 16.3 and worryingly, it appears to be related to the absence of two-factor authentication, the report suggested.

Several iPhone users who have updated their smartphones to iOS 16.3 have shared their experience on Apple's Support Forums and Reddit. The issues came after the update to iOS 16. 3, which introduced security changes allowing physical security keys to secure accounts and expanded Advanced Data Protection beyond the U.S. The reports mention that users are receiving a message which reads "An Unexpected Error Occurred. Please try again later" whenever they try to enable previously active and functional features such as iCloud Drive and iCloud Backup, and more.
