The iOS 16 beta has been available since July 11, and it introduces a lot of new features, including a new lock screen that Apple is well touting. There are also dozens of very small practical jobs, about which the brand did not communicate much.
At the beginning of June during WWDC ConferenceApple introduced iOS 16 And the iPadOS 16. Future versions of the iPhone and iPad operating systems bring quite a number of important new features, such as a new lock screen, the ability to tweak iMessage and a multi-window multitasking system for the brand’s tablets. These updates will be available to all users in September, but Can more than impatient than already installed. Trial versions are available since July 11, just go to beta.apple.com to download it.
Since early June, Nomirama has been testing future versions of Apple’s operating system. While it’s too early to release what counts as a test (we’ll wait for the final releases), we’ve spent the past few weeks listing all the fun little things we discovered in iOS 16 and iPadOS 16. Here are ten.
1 – The Wi-Fi password is finally accessible
15 years later The first iPhoneApple finally realized that not all of its customers know the Wi-Fi password by heart.
In iOS 16 settings, when you select a network, you can display its authentication key in clear text (after Face ID, Touch ID, or password verification). It is possible to copy and paste it to send to someone who does not have an Apple device (the Wi-Fi password is automatically shared between Apple devices).
2 – Face ID works when lying down
AgoiPhone XApple allows you to unlock your smartphone, access a secure app, or pay with Face ID. Oddly enough, today Face ID only works when you hold your smartphone vertically.
3 – Your bank card encryption is finally saved
Some may freak out when reading this subtitle, but this novelty is still very useful. Now, when a site asks us for our credit card details, Safari can complete everything, including the Card Verification Code (CVC) field. on me iOS 15this field always remains blank.
4 – Football match result on lock screen
Summer sticks, there aren’t many sports competitions at the moment. At the beginning of the school year, the new iOS 16 math stabilization function should become more practical. In Spotlight, search for the name of your favorite team and add the game that is currently streaming to the lock screen. The widget will be updated throughout the match, with the score in real time, without an app.
5 – wallpaper changes every time
Since iPhone OS 1, you can only choose one wallpaper on your iPhone. With iOS 16, it’s possible to pick a selection of photos or let the AI do it for you. It is up to you to set how often you want to change the wallpaper. This can be done every time the screen wakes up if desired. Interesting if you want to eg Enjoy wallpapers featuring panoramic photos by James Webb.
6 – Weather: temperature curves
It’s especially good in the middle of a heat waveiOS 16 allows you to open private modules in the app weather report. If you click on the temperature program, you can now access curves showing the evolution of degrees over the course of the day.
7 – Haptic feedback on the keyboard
On Android, it has been possible for several years to make the keyboard vibrate just by pressing a key. It wasn’t fun at first, but it became so over time, thanks to the advent of tactile actuators that improve vibrations and give the impression of really pressing a key.
iOS 16 allows you to do the same on iPhone. This is an option to activate in the settings, but once you select it, the smartphone vibrates quite a bit when typing. For our part, we love it.
8 – iPad screen can show more things
A novelty reserved for iPads, also stolen from Macs, and the ability to enlarge the available surface on the screen. How it works ? Icons and text get smaller, to make more room for other items. If you have good eyesight and want to multitask Training Managerthat can be very useful.
9- Voice memos change the design of iMessage
True False Novelty: Voice memos are now hidden in the Apps section of iMessage. When you click on the blue icon dedicated to Voice Memos, you get access to a true full screen interface, which was not the case before. Unfortunately, there are no other new features. We still can’t listen to a message before it’s sent or only edit part of it.
10- Masked photos protected by Face ID 😏
Good news if you have
Nudes Important photos to hide, iOS 16 password automatically protect some folders in your photo library. It is now impossible to access hidden photos or in the trash without going through Face ID, Touch ID, or your iPhone code.
Bonus: Other great little novelties
Since we couldn’t put everything into this selection, let’s mention some of the other new features of iOS 16 arriving this fall. There for exampleCancel an email within 10 seconds of sending it (sort of a countdown), the ability to adjust spatial audio with AirPods by scanning their ears with the TrueDepth camera, or instant captions that, in English only, add text to whatever your device’s speaker is going through. These functions are already available in iOS/iPadOS 16 beta.
