Tim Cook and a slew of Apple employees hit the stage today for the WWDC 2022 keynote, and among the many announcements were updated to iOS 16.
While we wait for the iPhone 14 to be revealed, millions of Apple fans will be receiving the iOS 16 upgrade on their iPhone this fall, so here’s a glimpse at what you can expect to wake up to when your phone receives its update later this year.
iOS 16 Features
Updates to the lock screen are among the biggest with new customization options that let you easily tweak the font and colors used. It also borrows from watchOS with the ability to set an image with depth information to allow lock screen elements to appear behind photo elements.
The lock screen will also allow for widgets that you can interact with without fully unlocking your phone. You can even create multiple lock screens and switch between them with a swipe.
Focus mode is being updated with additional filtering options to ensure that only the notifications you want right now get through. You will also be able to easily swipe between your Work or Home Focus modes when it’s time for your work day to be done.
Messages are getting a number of new updates this fall. Undo send will save you from that embarrassing typo or text by giving you the chance to delete a text before it reaches the recipient.
iOS 16 features are still coming in, so stay with us.
