iOS 16: Apple is preparing a major update with significant improvements
iOS 16 is coming! Several weeks before the presentation of the update, a reputable source came to tease the novelties of the interface. Obviously, Apple is planning a handful of major improvements.
iOS 16, the next version of the iPhone operating system, is starting to unfold. In his Sunday newsletter, Mark Gurman, journalist at Bloomberg, mentioned planned improvements by the Cupertino company.
Unsurprisingly, Apple isn’t planning to completely overhaul the interface design. “I don’t expect an end-to-end redesign of iOS’s interface, although it hasn’t changed much since iOS 7 almost a decade ago”says Mark Gurman, whose information about Apple’s plans is generally confirmed.
What’s new for iOS 16?
Nevertheless, the journalist assures that iOS 16 stands out as a major mobile OS update. Among the novelties in the boxes of Apple, we find “updated notifications and new health tracking features”.
Note that Apple had already introduced many changes to notifications with iOS 15. The firm notably added an improved do not disturb mode, called Focus. Concretely, it is possible to customize which notifications will appear on the screen, depending on the time of day and your occupations. It is also possible to choose how the notifications will appear. Apple is apparently preparing other changes with iOS 16 but the leaks say nothing more.
As expected, several of the features of iOS 16 would be dedicated health monitoring, one of Apple’s workhorses. Again, Gurman does not say more about the new features on the program. We imagine that these changes could concern the Health application, which brings together all health data.
On the iPad side, Apple would provide a new multitasking interface for iPadOS. Finally, watchOS, the OS of Apple Watch watches, “will get major upgrades to activity and health tracking”probably in anticipation of the Apple Watch Series 8.
For the record, Apple will present the iOS 16 update during the WWDC 2022. This annual event dedicated to developers will take place from June 6 to 10, 2022. To conclude, it should be recalled that the list of iPhones compatible with iOS 16 has already appeared on the web.
