    Apple has recently announced its iOS 16 software update. The new software will bring features that are going to change the way you use your iPhones. Though, there aren't any major interface changes but it has several useful and exciting features that you'll surely love whether you are on iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone SE 3 or other current models. While there is an array of useful features that the iOS 16 update has brought, we have shortlisted the best 5 of them that will enhance your basic iPhone experience. You will likely get the upgrade sometime in September.

    Custom lock screens

    iOS 16 has brought a new customizable Lock Screen that is attractive, and has more useful information than ever. You will get photo treatments, linked Focus modes, Photo Shuffle and many more.

    Edit and unsend sent messages

    Those “blue bubble” iMessages get more advanced with the iOS 16 update. You can edit an iMessage within 15 minutes after you send it. However, it will be marked “edited” on their receiver's screen. But it's okay as you can fix typos or delete a message that was sent mistakenly.

    Haptic keyboard

    It makes a huge difference while typing on your iPhone. This will make your iPhone experience more pleasant every time you touch the keyboard and type a text.

    Dictation with voice and keyboard

    The new dictation in iOS 16, you can dictate faster and more accurately. This new feature will automatically add punctuation commas, periods, and question marks as well. You can even add different emoji through dictation. The most remarkable thing is while you'll be dictating, the keyboard will also remain visible and active. You can easily switch to typing or go back to speaking.

    Take subjects out of images

    This feature is pretty interesting as you can pick subjects out from an image by just tapping and dragging the subject, leaving the background behind. But do note that, to use this feature, you must have an iPhone with at least an A12 Bionic processor, i.e, an iPhone XS or newer.
