The brand has released the operating system coming in the fall on the iPhone. With the importance of customization.
On June 6, Apple used the annual conference dedicated to developers to launch iOS 16, the latest version of the operating system for the iPhone. Especially with all the new features, iOS 16 will be available for free on all iPhones in the fall and will be integrated into the iPhone 14.
The main improvement provided by Apple is about the customization of the locked screen. While the brand often wants to limit the possibilities of securing iOS compatibility, it is now abandoning stabilization.
Fully customizable screen
At the top of the screen, the user can now customize the look of his photos, for example thanks to the filters, but make sure they integrate well with other elements. For example, for rendering reminiscent of magazines (or those offered on the Apple Watch), the time display slides behind the top of the object’s head.
Users’ aesthetic choices are reinforced by the possibility of changing the font of the hour, but also changing the color of the text. An evolution far from a technological revolution, but it contradicts Apple’s historical conservatism against Android.
Apple is also replacing the bottom of the lock screen, where announcements are now coming in, much more than the first versions of iOS.
Following the evolution of some applications from the locked screen, a new option inspired by widgets appears. In the cited examples: the arrival of a taxi, information related to sports training or even reading a piece of music.
Edit messages sent too quickly
On iOS 16, Apple also upgrades its iMessage messaging service, with a new feature that users are eagerly awaiting: the ability to edit or delete a message sent at any time. Given that the recipient has not yet seen, of course.
To facilitate transactions between users, Apple now has the ability to access the keyboard during voice commands and adjust text while flying.
The company also offered an option to use artificial intelligence systems to automatically carve the central element of an image. For example, in iMessage, send a picture of a dog on a white background.
A “security check”
To combat abusive relationships, but also in the event of a mobile theft, Apple is releasing new tools to protect its personal data, including those associated with its spouse. A tool called “Security Verification” will activate in a matter of seconds and immediately stop sharing specific data with other devices, such as its geolocation. All access to messages will be blocked, and Apple IDs will be reset. Conversely, iOS 16 will benefit from additional functionality for parental control purposes. A screen makes it possible for their children to see all the applications that are accessible.
