iOS 16 update: 5 Things NEW you will see instantly on your iPhone
The iOS 16 update also got some spotlight at the iPhone 14 launch event and we now know that the stable version will hit all supported iPhone models on September 12. Should you download it or leave it? That's up to you to decide. However, Apple fans will love what the iOS 16 update has to bring to the table. For the first time, iOS focuses intensely on customisation and that makes using an iPhone even more exciting.
The iOS 16 update will be reaching iPhone 8 and newer models. If you own a newer iPhone model, you will be able to enjoy almost all the benefits that come clubbed with the iOS 16 update. However, there are five new features that we think most iPhone users will immediately see after downloading it.
iOS 16: 5 Things you will notice Immediately
The iOS 16 update overhauls the lockscreen massively. You can now customise the clock widget and even choose some app widgets to be present below it. You can play with portrait style wallpapers and even get active running widgets from apps. The notifications have also been presented in a stacked manner. Plus, you can now save multiple lockscreen styles and choose between them from the lockscreen itself.
This is a blessing. If you type a lot, you will love the iPhone's keyboard now vibrating upon keystrokes. This makes a mega difference when typing texts, or simply doing a Google Search. You just have to enable it from the Settings.
New Spotlight Search
The Spotlight Search has been enhanced and you can now look for more things across apps, files, websites and more. Even the interface looks vastly different this time.
Notifications on the lockscreen and Notification Center are now presented in a stacked manner. All notifications from a single app are now bunched together, making it easier to sort them out.
Copy subject from photos, like Photoshop
With iOS 16 on your iPhone, just go to any photo in the Photos app and long tap on the subject. You will see that your iPhone can cutout the subject and make it available for copying to another app, or text box. The cutouts are professional grade, just like on the Photoshop app. Hence, you can now have your own personal stickers copied from your photos.
