Release notes, features and more

Tech Highlights:

  • We know the update is soon ready even if it can’t yet be downloaded by the general public. Apple has been releasing a significant software update for the iPhone around September for a number of years, and this pattern will continue in 2017. You’ll have the option to install iOS 16 when it becomes available if your phone is compatible (see the list of supported devices below). Obtaining the iOS update wirelessly is the simplest method. Here’s how to access iOS early via Apple’s beta programme.

  • This fall, iPhone users will be able to edit texts, modify the lock screen, and more. Apple’s future iPhone operating system is called iOS 16. This fall will see the introduction of several new features, including a programmable lock screen, improved photo library sharing, the capacity to edit and unsend texts, and much more. It is evident from a long history of iOS releases that a new version debuts every single year. This pattern continued this year with the release of iOS 16 at WWDC 2022 in June.

The following are some of the more notable adjustments coming to iOS 16: Focusing times and filters: Depending on the circumstance, such as when you’re in a particular place or using a specific app, a Focus may switch on automatically. For instance, while you’re in work mode, several Safari tabs may open. Customizing the lock screen: The iOS 16 lock screen offers a variety of customization options, including the ability to change the font and arrangement of items, add widgets and Live Activities, attach the lock screen to a Focus, and more. You can choose between different lock screens at any time if you construct more than one.

Live Text: Easily capture text from paused video or images, and instantly interact with it—e.g., track shipments or translate text. Siri changes: In iOS 16, Siri can process more requests offline, hang up for you in FaceTime calls, and send messages without requiring a confirmation. Accessibility improvements: Magnifier mode can identify people and doors to read signs or labels; you can fully control Apple Watch from iPhone; and automatic live captions are coming for audio, video, and conversations, including FaceTime video calls.

iCloud shared photo library: Sharing and viewing iCloud photos gets an upgrade with smart setup rules and suggestions, collaboration, and home screen widgets. Edit & unsend texts: Lots of other messaging apps support unsend, and now it’s coming to iMessage. You can even edit a message after you send it. You’ll have 15 minutes to do either (or 10 seconds if you’re unsending an email). Shared Tab Groups: Share groups of Safari tabs with friends, and even collaborate with them in real time as people close and open tabs.

Health app tracking: Make a list of all the medications you take to keep track of it all right there on your phone, and log when you take them for a full picture of your consistency. You’ll also see if there are any concerns about medication interactions. Safety Check: The Settings app is introducing this new feature to help you in very specific situations where you need to quickly reset the access you’ve given to other people. SharePlay via Messages: Share music, games, movies, and more with contacts directly in Messages.
