As is customary, Apple’s Developer Conference, WWDC 2022, took place today. Apple has released iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS 13 as predicted. These are the new operating systems that Apple will include into its ecosystem.
Apple also unveiled a variety of hardware devices, including the MacBook Air 2022 and the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the newest M2 CPU, in addition to software.
iOS 16 – change iPhone at first sight
According to Apple’s presentation, the option to customize the lock screen is the largest improvement in iOS 16 this year. Fonts (typefaces, colors) and background effects are examples.
Users can add widgets or build alternative lock screens, which can be swiftly swapped by swiping or changing the focus mode, according to Apple (Focus).
The way alerts are shown in iOS 16 is another new feature. Notifications are currently accumulated below the screen rather than adjacent to the old. Furthermore, with a feature called Live Notifications, real-time display notifications such as travel schedules, sports results, and so on will be prioritized to be displayed first.
Messages has recently upgraded its recall, repair, and unread message capabilities. Dictation is a new feature of this software that allows you to combine keyboard and voice to type texts faster.
Another excellent news is that Live Text now recognizes text through video rather than just photos, as it did previously. iOS 16 also has a feature that allows users to choose things in images and remove the background before sending them to another app.
Apple Pay Later is also available to Wallet customers on iOS 16. It enables us to purchase things in installments with Apple Pay (we can pay the bill in 6 weeks without incurring interest).
Apple Maps will be the next app to be enhanced, with the ability to support up to 15 stops while traveling and more detailed 3D maps in some new locations in the United States. In addition, there are a slew of new features in iOS 16 that you should check out.
Today, Apple also released the iOS 16 developer beta. Users will be able to download the official version in the fall. According to Apple, iOS 16 is compatible with iPhones 8 and higher.
