Apple has announced some features that will be included in the upcoming IOS 16 and we all know how impressive and groundbreaking can their updates turn out to be in the past. The most interesting and game-changing of those features are mentioned below that apple has given out to the public beta testers to use and the general public is going to see it in the coming fall. Check it out and let us know what you think about this.
iOS 16 best features
- Your current iPhone will get a new Lock Screen.
- On iOS 16, you can edit, unsend, and unread messages.
- Meet Passkeys in iOS 16 for a password-free future.
- Live text in a video is innovative.
- In iOS 16, Focus Mode is even more practical.
Now let’s discuss each one briefly.
1. Your current iPhone will get a new Lock Screen.
The redesigned Lock Screen is iOS 16’s most significant feature, or at least its most prominent. It provides a few new customization options that let you modify the Lock Screen almost as you like.
By tapping the items on your Lock Screen, you can easily change their layout, colour, and text. With a multilayered picture effect, the topic of the photograph is dynamically presented in front of the time.
Additionally, iOS 16 introduces the ability to add widgets to the Lock Screen for the first time, including both third-party and Apple-made widgets.
2. On iOS 16, you can edit, unsend, and unread messages.
iMessage is getting some significant upgrades in iOS 16. You’ll have 15 minutes after it becomes available to all users to amend or unsend any messages. This is incredibly helpful when you accidentally send the wrong message to the incorrect recipient or misspell a term.
On the other hand, Unread helps keep track of the messages you wish to respond to later. It’s vital to note that all devices must be running iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13 Ventura, or watchOS 9 to use the edit and unsend message functionality at the very least.
3. Meet Passkeys in iOS 16 for a password-free future.
Passkeys intends to do away with passwords in favour of a simpler and more secure sign-in process that uses your face or fingerprint with Face ID/Touch ID.
Since passkeys never leave your device and are unique to the website you created them for, making it nearly impossible for them to be phished or hacked, it is protected against phishing and website leaks.
Passkeys also sync between devices and enable sign-in on other devices. Apple claims that it is working to become the industry standard so that you may use your saved passkey to sign in to websites or applications on non-Apple devices by scanning the QR code with your iPhone or iPad and authenticating using Face ID or Touch ID.
4. Live text in a video is innovative.
With iOS 15, Live Text was already excellent. By choosing the text that is present in the photo, such as a phone number or address, you can extract information from it.
Since the text in paused video frames is now fully interactive with Live Text in videos, you may perform operations like copy and paste, lookup, and translation.
Additionally, Live Text with iOS 16 includes support for text in Japanese and Korean etc. Last but not least, data found in pictures and videos can be used by just tapping on them. Convert currencies, translate other languages, track shipments or flights, and more.
5. In iOS 16, Focus Mode is even more practical.
I proclaimed Focus Mode to be iOS 15’s most crucial upgrade feature. This function is improving right now.
For instance, your Focus Mode may be connected to your Lock Screen. Therefore, your Lock Screen will display the Focus you’ve set if you’re working.
You may instruct Apple programmes like Calendar, Mail, Messages, and Safari to draw borders for each Focus you allow using focus filters. Additionally, you can set up a Focus to automatically turn on at a specific time, place, or even while using a specific app, which is more useful than just a specific time.
