Last Updated on Sep 16, 2022

Ever since iOS arrived, it is causing a lot of errors for iPhone users. Now after so many issues a new one I heard is No Service after updating iPhone to iOS 16. This is happening because iOS has a bug, or it might be possible that one of the carriers which you are using like AT&T or Sprint or Verizon, or T-Mobile carriers are under maintenance.

We can’t judge the main reason behind No service after updating to the iOS latest version. However, instead of cursing the carrier or iOS 16 we better try some potential solutions that may solve this issue.
