Apple today revealed that iOS 16, its most recent operating system, would debut on September 12. During its Worldwide Developers Conference 2022 in June of last year, it initially revealed the free upgrade, and in July it made a public beta available. Unfortunately, the release of iPadOS 16 has been postponed even though the two operating systems are often published simultaneously.
Consequently to the abundance of features, it’s offering, the update won’t come as much of a surprise. They begin with a number of changes to the lock screen, such as the ability to add widgets, modify how it looks, and deliver notifications in a new way. With certain restrictions, you will be able to modify and recall sent messages, share photographs with your family using the new iCloud Shared Photo Library, and use the Live Text tool to extract text from both photos and videos.
The launch of the new operating system coincides nicely with the release of Apple’s newest iPhones, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which go on preorder on September 9 and hit stores on September 16.
The Lock Screen has been totally redesigned in iOS 16, which is the most obvious update. Users can alter a variety of graphic components in the new Lock Screen to design the ideal Lock Screen. Customers have a variety of options for the time, including different fonts and colours, widgets, new wallpapers with a depth effect that discreetly hides the time, filters, colour tints, and more.
Apple is also enhancing features like Spotlight search in other essential programs like Mail and Safari while also introducing new ones like undo and schedule send for emails, Shared Tab Groups, Safari Passkeys, and more. Notable additions to Apple Maps include support for transport cards and multi-stop routing.
