Announcing iOS 16 at the WWDC 2022 event. So, what does iOS 16 promise to iPhone users with its features? Here is the new iOS version!
IOS 16 features – Customizable Lock Screen
The first remarkable innovation that comes with iOS 16 is undoubtedly a redesigned and customizable lock screen. With the new iOS version, Craig Federighi, a Cupertino technology giant who promises users a more authentic iPhone experience, said that users can add widgets to the lock screen and adjust the depth of field with their own images in the background.
Other than that, Craig Federighi, who also warned that a new wallpaper gallery will be coming along with iOS 16, said the new lock screen animations will also be available to users.
Focusing specifically on the lock screen on the iOS 16 operating system, the company also announced Live activities at the WWDC 2022 conference. With this feature, users will be able to view the tool they call in apps as notifications. So here’s a little example: For example, a team you love has a game and you can’t watch it. With this feature, you’ll be able to track the match’s score live with a notification from the lock screen.
iMessage Becomes a Competitor to WhatsApp
In the new iOS version, the app that has the most changed since the lock screen also appears as iMessage. With new features to the iMessage app, the technology giant offers users the features that don’t look like WhatsApp and includes the feature that has been requested by users for a long time.
If we talk about what’s new in the Messages app, users can now edit the messages they have sent. The edited message will appear as edited on the opposite side. Apple, which also directly integrated SharePlay into the iMessage app, will allow users to remotely watch movies, listen to music, and more directly through the messaging app.
Apple Wallet Innovations
The Apple Wallet app also gets a little something new. With what’s new in the wallet app, users can securely share birthdays with apps to verify their age in states that accept Digital IDs. In addition, the new update paves the way for users to share their virtual keys with other users. In addition, Apple has made several innovations in the non-contact feature of the Wallet app, and now makes its products active for resellers who want to accept payments from the iPhone.
Map App completely redesigned
At the WWDC 2022 event, the Cupertinolu technology giant, which also touches the Map App, says it has redesigned the Map App. With the redesigned Map App, Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Miami, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Sydney, and Toronto, Detailed maps of cities such as Vancouver, Washington are available to users.
The Multiple Stops feature is also coming to Apple Maps for the first time. Apple officials say that users can set up to 15 stops and view these routes from the Recently Drawn Routes tab. It is also stated that while driving, users can add new routes to this route that they set with the help of Siri.
With the new version of iOS, the My Sports tab is added to Apple News. With this tab, users will be able to instantly track the sports, teams, and leagues they are interested in.
Apple is always known as a company that cares about security and privacy. Once again, the technology giant on security and privacy at the WWDC 2022 event introduces the Security Control feature with iOS 16. With this feature, focused on personal security, the Emergency Reset button allows you to cut access to all your accounts. So you can completely block access to your accounts from people you don’t want.
With iOS 16, Apple redesigns the experience ‘CarPlay’ across all vehicle infotainment systems. In this respect, the company has made significant changes to CarPlay, allowing users to access various information, such as air conditioning and instrument panel, via the CarPlay app. This enables users to adjust the vehicle’s air conditioning and control the car radio from the CarPay app.
Family Sharing Feature
It also details Family Sharing with the new iOS version, allowing users to more easily control the accounts they have created for their children. With these innovations, users can restrict their children’s age. In addition, iPhone users are alerted by messages when their children exceed their screen time or when they want additional screen time.
