The 5 most outstanding new features of iOS 16

Undoubtedly, Apple has delighted all users with the number of new features it has introduced at the 2022 developer conference, but I think very few expected iOS 16 to have as many new features as it has. However, in this post we want to focus only on five of them, the ones that at ITIGIC we consider to be the most important and that all iPhone users will be able to enjoy the most. Let’s go with them.

  • Obviously, the first great novelty is the new lock screen that Apple has incorporated in iOS 16. From now on you can modify both the color and the font of the time and date that is displayed on the screen, something really surprising considering that Apple has never been a company that gives much game to customization. It has also included the possibility of inserting different widgets on this locked screen, as well as the opportunity to create different lock screens to switch between them and even adopt them in the different concentration modes. In addition, the notifications on this screen are also displayed differently, since they will appear at the bottom of the screen and not at the top as before.

  • Continuing with the line of concentration modes , these now, in addition to being able to assign them a specific lock screen, also have filters that will act on apps such as Calendar, Mail, Messages and Safari so that they can only show the content that is more suitable for that mode of concentration, thus helping users to focus on the task at hand much better.
  • For all users who use the Apple Family, the Cupertino company has implemented iCloud Shared Photo Library making sharing photos much easier and more intuitive than ever. In this way, all the members of a family will be able to share the photos they have taken, bearing in mind that these images are not copies of the original, but rather the original, so that all the changes that are made out on it, they will be updated for all members of the family.

  • Live Text was one of the great novelties that Apple introduced in iOS 15, well, with iOS 16 this function has been improved, since now you can not only use it in photos, but also in videos.
  • Finally, we want to highlight again the efforts that Apple always makes so that all users can get the most out of their equipment. In this case, a new dictation is introduced, providing the opportunity to use this functionality together with the iPhone keyboard at the same time, making typing much more comfortable for users with motor problems.
