iOS 16: Should you download it?

Based on our experience with the beta version of the iOS 16 on the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Mini so far, the answer is a big Yes. iOS 16 has been largely stable and isn’t a battery hog like iOS 15. The new lock screen customisation and the haptic feedback on the keyboard are two big reasons to consider this iOS update without doubt.
