What will iOS 16 look like? Here is everything we know
Rumors say that the new iOS 16 will change a lot
Apple released a full version of iOS 15 in September 2021 – six months have passed since the release of the new OC, and there are already rumors about the new iOS 16. Probably, Apple shouldn’t release updates so often, because iOS 15 (as well as iOS 14) turned out to be quite good and stable. However, Apple can not help but release a new version, but first it should be announced at the WWDC before the official release in the fall. Let’s find out what we already know about the release date of iOS 16, which chips will appear in the new OS and which devices will support.
When iOS 16 comes out
Information about the upcoming presentation of WWDC 2022, where Apple traditionally announces iOS updates, has appeared online. MyDrivers announces that the new event will take place on June 6, 2022. The possible date is named with reference to the famous insider John Prosser. The source is known, but not the most accurate: however, there is some truth in his words, because last year the event took place on June 7.
In addition to iOS, Apple is announcing other operating systems at this event, including iPadOS 16, the new macOS 13 and others. Although WWDC is a developer conference, it is attracting gadget fans around the world by announcing new products from Apple. By the way, the presentation of a new single-chip system and a new iMac is expected this year.
What’s new in iOS 16
There is no exact data on the new OS yet, but rumors say that the new iOS 16 will change a lot. According to John Prosser, iOS will get big changes in the interface, which will make it even faster and more convenient. It is already known that one of the innovations will be the new InfoShack – the most famous interactive widgets, which we all have long lacked.
With the new set of components, users will be able to access information directly from the desktop, such as adjusting brightness, switching tracks, and so on. Apple believes that this will save users a lot of time by running features directly from the Home screen. In addition, rumors are already circulating that InfoShack widgets are under development.
Also, one of the January leaks of the LeaksApplePro channel indicates that in iOS 16 there will be neomorphism as in macOS, the appearance of application shortcuts will change, and widgets will add control of system settings.
IOS 16 needs to be updated with the “Camera” program: this was facilitated by the appearance of “Movie Effect” in the iPhone 13, which made it very inconvenient to scroll through the modes. Features in the “Camera” have increased significantly in recent years, and the interface has not been updated for a long time – most likely, Apple will redo it.
Meanwhile, various iOS 16 concepts are emerging. One of them was created by Kevin Kel – at one time he tried to introduce Windows 11 and AirPods 3. The artist shared his vision of iOS 16: in his version, the system also has live widgets, as well as multitasking like Split View on iPad – a feature that iPhone users have been waiting for a long time.
