Apple introduces its brand new iOS 16 with an overhauled revamped UI. As usual for Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, the iPhone maker has disclosed the upgrades of its next milestone operating system versions, which includes iOS 16. Arriving in the fall to coincide with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro range, iOS 16 brings the usual array of performance improvements, with major changes, and new features.

Instead of taking iOS in a new design approach, the interface of iOS 16 is relatively similar to that of iOS 15. While the general look and feel are similar, features included in the mobile operating system have certainly changed.

Here is the list of changes that applies on iOS16:

Lock Screen

The lock screen has been given a relatively good makeover, to make it a more useful element of iOS. This includes the introduction of widgets, which bring more data to the lock screen than the existing notifications, time, and torch and camera buttons.

The purpose is that there will be more data for the user to see, without needing to fully unlock the iPhone to see it.

The lock screen is personalizable, including the ability to add Portrait mode photos and filters. The clock can have different fonts and colors, while the new wallpaper gallery can suggest photos for you to use.

Numerous lock screens can be made, with a Lock Screen Editor able to make screens like you would configure Apple Watch faces. Other elements include a Weather lock screen with animation, emoji wallpaper, and an astronomy collection.

Notifications have been updated to show new features at the bottom of the screen. The new Live Activities and API can show glanceable notifications, and for Music Live Activities, they can also show album art as well.
Focus modes have also been extended to the Lock Screen, so you can show a detailed Lock Screen based on which Focus is engaged. Focus Filters now takes Focus into apps, such as offering only specific tabs in Safari, certain Mail accounts, or other specified information types in other third-party apps.


Messages and Mail

Messages benefit from the ability to edit messages after they have been sent. You can also delete messages forever from a conversation, and mark a thread as unread. Shared With You is updated with a new API, which will allow innovators to access the system within their apps.SharePlay is getting improved with a specific button in FaceTime. It is also coming to Messages. So multiple actions could take place.

Improved dictation also helps users compose their messages with more ease in format. There is also easy switching between touch and voice using on-device dictation. There is also automatic punctuation and emoji too.

In Mail, users can organize emails ahead of time and could cancel the delivery before it hits the recipient’s inbox. It also informs the users if they may have forgotten something, like citing an attachment or document but not connecting it to the message.

There are options to resurface messages at a later time with Remind Later. Follow Up will automatically remind users that they should follow up with an email if there hasn’t been a response. Mail also overhauls search with new techniques employed to generate results.


Siri and processing

Developers will be able to take advantage of Apple’s digital assistant in apps via a new API called App Intents.

Live Text has been updated with video support, so you can pause a video and interact with text visible within the frame. After choosing text, you can select from several immediate actions. Users can add emojis to a message via Siri, with an extra option to speed up sending messages by skipping the confirmation step and sending messages.

Live Text also gains an API, with it able to be used in Translate. Visual Lookup has been updated with subject selection. For users, this means you can lift and hold subjects of images, then place them into an app like Messages as a sticker.


Wallet

The Wallet gains an in-app ID verification system with a Driver’s License for apps such as Uber, providing age verification and validation for other bits of data. Keys kept in the Wallet can be shared with others using messaging apps, including Messages, Mail, and WhatsApp.

A new Apple Pay Later will allow you to diverge the cost of an item into four equal payments. The service is offered with zero interest and no fees and works wherever Apple Pay is accepted. Order tracking is also added to Apple Pay, to show when deliveries are reaching within Wallet. Millions of traders will offer the service, it all starting with Shopify.


Maps

Apple’s redesigned Maps experience will be available in six more cities, which will enable views of those locations with 3D entities. The new display is also being rolled out to 11 additional countries.

Multistop routing is also coming to Maps, with users able to plan up to 15 stops on a route in advance. You could also plan on a Mac and send the route to iPhone, and even add more stops using Siri. Transit is gaining cost features, so when you’re asking for directions, you can see how much you will pay for public transport if you follow the navigation instructions.

MapKit has been updated for developers, with third-party apps able to execute complex Apple Maps. MapKit also gains a Look Around. Lastly, for Maps, there will be server-side APIs that will be introduced later in 2022.


Apple News

Apple’s News app has been updated with a My Sports section, which lets users follow their favorite teams. This includes highlights, scores, and standings for teams.

There’s also Apple News+ integration, enabling paid publications to use the same My Sports feature.


Families and Safety

As part of Apple’s endeavors to make iOS safer for families, it is now achievable for accounts within a family group to have parental controls applied based on age. There’s a quick setup feature for kid’s accounts that adds settings with no further arrangement. Family Checklist will make it easier for parents to change settings as their children get older.

Safety Check in iOS 16 Photos for Family is an iCloud shared Photo library, which lets all within a family group share images together. Users can share whatever they want, share-based on who is in the photo or what photo is taken, and can manually share items.

Safety Check is a system to limit the amount of data being shared, whenever required. Users can review and reset access to data and locations that have been granted for others, turn off location for all devices, limit iMessage sync to just the device in their hand, and even limit who can contact them.


HomeKit

As part of Apple’s HomeKit information, it’s encouraging the cross-platform smart home standard called Matter. This should allow more smart home devices to work together, despite not having a typically shared platform.

The Home app is being updated with a new interface. The main tab of the app contains Rooms and Favorites, while new categories are offered for climate, security, lights, and other elements. Moreover, there are new lock screen widgets that work with the Home app.


CarPlay

Apple’s automotive interface CarPlay is being given a tremendous upgrade to more deeply incorporate a car’s hardware. Under this, multi-screen support will allow widgets and apps to appear on more parts of the dashboard.

The deeper integration will allow CarPlay to access other features, such as directly controlling a radio or changing the climate. Accessing vehicle data can also allow CarPlay to render details like speed, fuel level, temperature, and other items on the instrument cluster.

This also means drivers can personalize their experience, such as showing only gauges and widgets they are interested in, rather than everything. This can even include at-a-glance information about the weather and currently playing music.

Apple says it will share more detailed information about CarPlay’s next generation in the future, with vehicles that will use it expected to be declared late in 2023.


Safari

New shared Tab Groups lets you share website collections with friends and family, so the group can add more tabs and see what others are using.

Passkeys, unique digital keys that are not stored on a web server, are planned to replace passwords. Syncable using iCloud Keychain across devices with end-to-end encryption, they use Touch ID and Face ID for verification, and work across apps and websites.


Fitness

Fitness App is General to iPhone users without needing an Apple Watch, the updated Fitness app lets users have an equivalent experience, but just using the iPhone. That includes daily Move goals and the Move ring for calories burned through activity.

The Fitness app gets its Move ring On-device sensors used for tracking steps, distances, flights climbed, and workouts from third-party apps. Move rings can be shared with others for motivation.


Health

The Health app adds Medications, so users can gather and manage their list of medications, create timetables and reminders, and track their intake. US users will be able to add medications, read information about the medication, and receive alerts about potential critical interactions, all by pointing the camera at the label.

Health data can be shared with family members, with health records able to be transformed into a PDF from within the app.


Personalized Spatial Audio

The Spatial Audio experience is getting updated, with the use of the TrueDepth camera on an iPhone. By creating a personal profile for Spatial Audio, the iPhone can provide a listening experience that’s tuned “just for them.”


Eligible Devices

Apple usually releases the initial developer beta for iOS shortly after the WWDC keynote concludes. Public betas typically start a few weeks later, generally by or after the second developer build.

Apple says iOS 16 is supported by:

iPhone SE Gen 2, iPhone SE Gen 3, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max.
