iOS 16 - Changes & New Features

With the release of the new iPhone 14 series comes an update of Apple’s iOS operating system. What innovations does this update to iOS 16 bring with it? Here you get an overview of the most important changes and latest features.

The overriding theme for the current update is one in particular: the personalization of your iPhone. It should be more about you and you should get ingenious possibilities to design and use your iPhone even more individually.

iOS 16의 기능 해상도 변경

iOS 16 - Lock Screen

This is especially true for the lock screen. The lock screen can now be customized to your liking. You can choose the font, color and placement of the elements so that it harmonizes perfectly with the background image of your lock screen. The multi-layer effect for photos ensures that photos appear dynamically in front of or behind the respective elements.

Not only can you create one lock screen, but you can now create multiple lock screens and choose between them. You can also select multiple photos for a lock screen. Your iPhone will then switch between these images every time you turn it on, so you can be surprised and excited about which photo will appear next on your lock screen.

In addition, there are new widgets that give you an even better overview of your most important data such as appointments, activities or the weather. They can be displayed in different shapes and sizes. This way, you always have an individual overview of all relevant data right when you turn on your smartphone and can even track the progress of your activity rings.


iOS 16 - Focus Mode

The feature, which is already known from iOS 15, will be further developed and improved in the course of iOS 16. The focus mode is supposed to put an end to unwanted distractions. The revised focus filter allows you to set your priorities so that you only receive certain messages from your selected apps and contacts.

This way you can hide everything that distracts you to be undisturbed. You can create several profiles, which you can already manage on the lock screen. For example, you can easily switch between your focus profile for work and for leisure.

iOS 16 - Photos

Apple not only makes it easier to share your photos with the introduction of iOS 16, but also to take them. With improved artificial intelligence, your iPhone now gets even more out of the camera and impresses with brilliant photos, even in low light.

The artificial intelligence can directly assign the people depicted to the resulting photos. In addition, shared media libraries can be set up, in which corresponding pictures can be uploaded directly from the gallery. If members of this media library are nearby, the latest photos can even be shared automatically. This way, you can easily share your photos with your loved ones.

iOS 16 - All New Features

Of course, that was not all. Here you get an overview of all relevant changes and new features:

  • Lock screen gallery: Find inspiration to personalize your lock screen in a gallery with lots of options
  • Change lock screen: You can change your lock screen during the day
  • Edit lock screens: You can easily customize the font, color or placement of items on your lock screen
  • Random photo selection: Automatically display a collection of photos in random order on your lock screen
  • Suggested photos: iOS makes smart suggestions for photos from your library that look great on the lock screen.
  • Widgets: You can display a number of widgets as part of your lock screen to see information like weather, time, date, battery level, upcoming calendar events, alarms, time zones, and the progress of your activity rings at a glance
  • Live Activities: With Live Activities, you can track ongoing activities in real time right on your lock screen
  • Focus filters: For each focus, you can specify what content to show in Apple apps like Calendar, Mail, Messages, and Safari
  • Set up focus schedules: Set a focus to automatically activate at a specific time, in a specific place, or when using a specific app
  • Share photo library: Share a separate iCloud photo library with up to five other people
  • Edit messages: You can edit a message up to 15 minutes after sending it
  • Undo Send: You can undo sending a message for up to 2 minutes
  • Recover recently deleted messages: You can recover recently deleted messages for up to 30 days
  • Smart search corrections: Smart search corrects typos and also searches for synonyms of your search terms to give you better results
  • Send later: Have an email sent at the perfect time
