Apple’s upcoming iOS 16 operating system is likely to be focused on notifications, not a complete redesign. However, analyst Mark Gurman remarked that the new software will not focus on the design of the device, and instead, focus on how notifications are organized. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said that Touch ID will eventually appear below the display, but that it probably won’t be available before 2023. This is in line with the latest Shadow Leaks, who uncovered the expected iPhone 14 specs.
Apple’s upcoming iOS 16 operating system
There is no word yet on the exact features of iOS 16. However, you can expect the new OS to include a host of new features. The biggest addition will be the introduction of Apple Pay, which will allow small businesses to accept payments directly from an iPhone without the need for additional hardware. Also, iOS 16 will introduce new accessibility features for disabled users. While there is still no firm launch date for iOS 16 for the iPhone, there will be a host of new features that are expected to make the smartphone more accessible for everyone.
Changes to the iPhone 14 lineup
Apple is expected to make significant changes to the iPhone 14 lineup in the upcoming iOS 16 update. While the existing iPhone 13 Pro models have received upgrades to the camera, the iPhone 14 series is expected to be significantly improved. A leaked image of the iPhone 14 Pro, allegedly running iOS 16, revealed a hole-punch design and a new battery indicator. The new battery indicator is expected to be integrated with the next iOS version, but it is unclear if Apple is planning to release a model with the feature.
New 5G chip
If you’re hoping for more news from iOS 16, don’t expect it anytime soon. The company has been quiet about it, and it is still working on the next version of the operating system. Despite this, some rumours suggest that Apple will finally go the USB-C route with the iPhone 14 Pro. While there are many devices that already have USB-C connectivity, there’s a good chance Apple will go the USB-C route with the iPhone 14 Pro. That would mean that Apple could upgrade the Lightning port to USB-C with a faster USB 3.0 data transfer. USB-C is getting closer to becoming the industry standard, which means that Apple could switch to it before the iPhone 14 comes out.
Apple is expected to introduce Always-on display (AOD) with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 Pro models. This will allow users to see content without turning the screen on. While this technology has been around for a while, Apple has been slow to implement it. The new feature, however, could change the way we use our iPhones and make it easier to multi-task with apps.
Redesigned camera setup
The redesigned camera setup in iOS 16 is expected to bring improvements to Portrait mode and Cinematic mode. These improvements are specific to the iPhone 13 lineup. The updated operating system will ship later this fall. Apple announced iOS 16 during its WWDC22 opening keynote event. While the company did not reveal all the new features, a preview page has revealed additional improvements for the modern iPhone camera. Here’s a quick look at the changes to the camera on iOS 16.
