    Apple is preparing the iOS 16.2 update for iPhones across the world and just like the previous release, there are a couple of changes coming for the iPhones. Apple is yet to announce a release date for iOS 16.2 update but the beta version has been out for a while now and we have a fair idea about all the new changes coming to the iPhones. Amidst a large list of small changes, there are three big features that we think are going to elevate your iPhone experience significantly.

    Note that the iOS 16.2 update is currently available in only the beta channel and those wanting an early look will need to sign up for the Apple Beta Program. Rumours suggest that Apple will release the iOS 16.2 update sometime around December 12. The update has a big thing planned for Indian iPhone users as well.

    iOS 16.2 update to have 3 big features

    Always On Display mods

    The Always On Display feature on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max has been a big topic of discussion. Users have long asked Apple to provide a simplistic Always On screen and Apple has complied. The iOS 16.2 update will let users turn off the wallpaper and the notifications on the Always On screen.

    mobile to buy?

    5G in India

    The iOS 16.2 update will also enable support for 5G networks on compatible iPhones in India. This means users of iPhone 12 series, iPhone 13 series, iPhone 14 series, and the iPhone SE 3rd Gen on Airtel and Jio networks will get to witness faster 5G data speeds.

    Freeform app

    The Freeform app is meant to please creators who swear on their iPhones for everything. The app allows users to draw and insert sticky notes, text boxes, shapes, photos, videos, links, PDF files, and more. Note that the Freeform app is also available on iPad and macOS platforms.
