Apple released iOS 16 Beta 3 on July 6. iOS 16 will come with many innovations. Apple’s latest iOS version is 15.6. 15.6 includes bug fixing and new features, but Apple will come with more features with iOS 16 because 16 is not an intermediate version like 15.6. Although it is not known when iOS 16 will be released, it is certainly not a very distant date. It may be introduced at the Apple launch in September, where the iPhone 14s will also be presented.
Features coming with iOS 16 in September
iOS 16 Beta 3 version has been released and is currently being tested. Apple has been testing many features, but the lock screen update is the most significant change on the lock screen of all time, Apple said. Another of Apple’s radical changes is the Always on Display feature. We know this feature has been on Android devices for a long time and is loved by users.
Although iOS is a rival to Android, it is pleasing for us, end users, that they benefit from each other. Another exciting innovation is Live Activities. Live Activities makes the notification area more up-to-date with the API. For example, from now on, instead of a separate notification, an animation will be displayed in a single notification area.
It stands out as a new feature that helps users to track activities. These are sports events, workouts, ridesharing or ordering food in real-time directly from the lock screen.
Visual Lookup, introduced last year, takes visual browsing to a new dimension with iOS 16. Users can now scan an image and move it to another area, such as messaging. Visual Lookup is supported by iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. Apple seems to break the game with iOS 16. Let’s list the highlights of iOS 16 innovations that Apple also shared on its official site.
- Lock Screen (Lock Screen editing and others)
- Focus (Lock Screen linking and others)
- iCloud Shared Photo Library (Share a photo library with your family and others)
- Live Text (Live Text in videos and others)
- Apple Pay and Wallet (Apple Pay Later and others)
- CarPlay (Vehicle announcements coming in late 2023)
- Security (Rapid Security Response and Landscape Face ID)
