iOS 16 can change how you interact with your iPhone

Tech Highlights:

  • In Gurman’s Power On newsletter (via MacRumors), he also claims there will be “new ways of interacting and some fresh Apple apps.” While specifics aren’t shown, other rumors indicate we could see interactive widgets, also known as “big widgets.” This would allow for a lot more customization, while the rumored “Quick Actions” notification update would allow users to perform more actions on the lock screen.

  • Apple’s WWDC 2022 event is rapidly approaching, and we’ll soon learn about all of the improvements coming with iOS 16. We may apparently expect some new Apple apps as well as a new method to engage with an iPhone. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, while Apple’s operating system will not undergo a massive makeover with iOS 16, there will be “substantial adjustments across the system.” We may already have a fair notion of what they may be, such as new health-tracking capabilities and a notification upgrade.

Changes are coming to Apple’s Focus mode too, which was introduced in iOS 15. In iOS 16, however, there will apparently be more customizations coming to Focus mode, they may not be compatible with iOS 15. A message spotted in iOS 15.5 beta suggests “A device with newer software has updated this Focus to use a new configuration this device doesn’t support.”

Apple is reportedly planning to bring a new low power mode that will allow users to save battery life while using other features and a number of apps. This is an important upgrade from the Power Reserve mode. That will be a game-changer for the wearable’s battery life, especially seeing how other smartwatches such as the Huawei Watch GT Runner offers 14 days of battery. Whatever is set to arrive, we’re hoping for significant software announcements across Apple’s devices during WWDC 2022 on June 6. In the meantime, check out all you need to know about iOS 16 and more.

Gurman also claims that “news about watchOS 9 will be significant.” This isn’t the first we’ve heard of big Apple Watch updates. Codenamed “Sydney,” the upcoming iPhone software update is expected to go hand-in-hand with the Apple Watch too, as Gurman previously said that watchOS 9 will offer “major upgrades to activity and health tracking.”
