With its future software releases, iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, which the firm is scheduled to announce during its WWDC 2022 developer conference on June 6, Apple is reportedly introducing a plethora of new updates to iPhones and iPads.
According to Bloomberg, the iPhone improvements include notifications, messaging, and the Health app. Last year, Apple also released new notification adjustments, such as the ability to group them together into a summary at a specified time of day and a new Focus mode that limits the notifications you see at specific times. According to Bloomberg, the messaging app will get new audio message options.
Meanwhile, according to Bloomberg, the Health app will get new features that will interact with the iPhone and Apple Watch.
Apple is rumoured to be adding new lock screen widgets as well as support for “always-on” displays to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. That way, you’d be able to see widgets on your iPhone even if it was just sitting on your desk. When the iPhone is not in use, the screen goes dark. However, always-on displays have become ubiquitous on Android phones manufactured by Samsung, Google, and other manufacturers.
However, because Apple typically releases its latest iPhone in the fall, it will be a few months before people can purchase phones that support that function.
According to the rumour, Apple will also include additional iPad multitasking capabilities. It made it much easier to run two apps side by side last year, but some iPad power users have long requested features that allow the tablet to run even more apps in distinct windows, as you might on a Mac.
Apple normally unveils new software at the event, then makes it available in beta for consumers to test before releasing the final version to all users in the fall.
According to Bloomberg, Apple may also unveil new MacBook Air computers at the event.
An Apple representative was not immediately available for comment.
