‘iPhone 16’ brings new surprises…

Apple has finally announced the new version of iOS ‘iPhone 16’ for the iPhone. In addition to which iPhone will support iOS 16, you can know more about the new features of ‘iPhone 16’ in this post. So let’s know the details about the new features of ‘iPhone 16’.

Lock screen customization

Finally, the feature of lock screen customization has been added to the iPhone operating system. Widgets, new notification experience, live widgets, etc. have been added to the new iPhone lockscreen. A user can customize the lock screen by long press. In addition to various templates, users can create their own collections.

Although there is no lock screen customization feature in iOS so far, iOS 16 has taken a step ahead of all mobile devices in lock screen customization.


Focus Filter takes iOS ‘s focus feature to another level. With the help of focus filter, Safari, calendar or communication apps can be arranged as per the need of the entire phone. Focus mode can be used directly from the lockscreen. That is, if you have two focus profiles for work and home, each of the app’s settings can be set separately for both profiles. Focus filter will work from lockscreen to homescreen and supported apps too.

Notification Center

iOS 16’s Notification Center is updated. App notifications on the lockscreen will be bundled at the bottom instead of being displayed on the full screen. Developers can use the new notification system for various live activities with the help of Live Activities API. This will make notifications interactive and useful in real time.


Apple has added three new features to the Messages app. First, the ability to edit sent messages has been added in iOS 16. Besides, the message can be edited or unsent within 15 minutes of sending the message in iOS 16. Also, messages can be selected as “unread” which can be useful for reading later.

iCloud Shared Photo Library

A maximum of 5 people can contribute to the same library in the new separate iCloud library. The shared photo library can also be viewed in the user’s memory and featured photos. Let’s say that everyone has taken pictures in a family event, now sending all the pictures to everyone again and again is quite a troublesome task. To make this easier, multiple accounts in the family can be linked together to create a shared photo library.

Live text

A video can be paused and detected through live text. Besides, Live Text API has been brought for developers through which they can add this feature to their own apps. In addition, the visual look up feature has been improved, which separates different animals from images and allows them to be dragged-and-dropped into messages as stickers.


Email scheduling option has arrived in iOS 16. Besides, the email can be canceled before it is sent. From now on, the Mail app will notify the user about missing elements in a mail.

Apple Wallet

Pay Later and Order Tracking features have been added to the Apple Wallet app. Purchases can be made in installments on iOS 16 through the Pay Letter feature without any interest. In addition, Key and ID support has been extended, along with improved privacy features.


SharePlay can be used directly from the Messages app in iOS 16. That is, content in Sync can be enjoyed with friends and family by Shareplay within messages.


iOS 16 introduces the new Dictation feature, the feature is basically a real-time voice typing feature. There is an opportunity to combine typing and dictating from now on.

Apple Maps

Apple Maps has recently rolled out to 11 more countries. This map has 3D visuals as well as features like transit, multistop routing, etc. These features are made available to developers through MapKit. Besides, 360 degree view has also been added in many places to get a better idea about a location.

Apple Health

The new Medications tab in the Apple Health app lets you set daily medications and when to take them, which will provide timely reminders. Even this reminder notification will be available through Apple Watch. Drug data can be added by scanning the bottle label or typing it manually. Besides, this data can also be shared with family members.

Parental Controls

Parental controls are improved in iOS 16. Easily control and set up children’s Apple devices in iOS 16. Things like controlling children’s screentime can be done quite easily without going into settings. Children’s devices can now be set up quite easily. Parental controls can be easily set up by bringing the iPad to your iPhone.

Safety check

A new feature called Safety Check has arrived in iOS 16 that will help victims of domestic abuse and violence. Using Safety Check, you can decide to remove location sharing and message access from abusive family members.


The Home app has been redesigned to support the upcoming Matter standard, allowing the entire home to be viewed in the same feed.

Handoff Facetime calls

While talking to someone on FaceTime on the phone, holding the phone close to any iPad or MacBook can transfer the call to the big screen in iOS 16.


All iPhone users will be able to use the fitness app, meaning that an Apple Watch is no longer needed to use the fitness app.

Apple News

The My Sports section has been added to the Apple News app to bring together news about favorite teams and players in one place. Besides, scores, schedules, standings and highlights can be seen from the News app.

Quick Notes

iPad’s Quick Notes feature is coming to iPhone with iOS 16. Quick notes can be created from any screen by swiping to the bottom right corner.


Apple is teaming up with car manufacturers to develop a new CarPlay experience. This will result in customizable odometer, all facet controls of the car and unified interface. It is reported that the first car with these facilities will be released in 2023.
