New features of iOS 16 operating system
Last year, the coronavirus caused quarantine in various countries, followed by an increase in the use of online meetings among the public. At the same time, Apple introduced the new version of iOS 15, features such as new Facebook features, including Spatial Audio, the ability to share content and support Android and Windows. In addition, it added another feature, which included unlocking the iPhone via Facebook ID while wearing the mask. This feature was added in iOS 15.4 at a time when the Apple Watch was no longer needed. We also see changes in the new iPhone operating system, which we will examine below.
Change in the appearance of the lock screen
In this version, users will see the new look of the lock screen with widget support. With this change, they can keep their hands on the lock screen, thereby personalizing its appearance. It is even possible to add color filters and change the font of the time.
On the other hand, with the addition of a widget to the lock screen, there are millions of ways to change the shape of the lock screen. Even in this version, there is the ability to create multiple lock screens and choose between them with a swipe on the screen.
The new update provides users with another feature. Users can choose their wallpapers from a variety of options. They can tap Photo Screen daily or hourly to select Photo Suffle and change their wallpapers. In addition, the artificial intelligence designed in this version, allows you to select the best images taken by users and display them on the lock screen.
Add functionality in iMessage
Update in iMessage gives users the ability to mark their unread messages and read them at the right time. Another part of the update in iMessage is the addition of the SharePlay feature. This feature allows you to listen to music or watch movies at the same time.
Improved notification area
The notification area in this version does not take up the entire page but is displayed regularly at the bottom of the page. The “live activities” feature exposes live events such as the result of a football game or the arrival of a taxi.
