It’s no secret that Apple is working on a new version of the iPhone called iPhone 14. And to accompany it, like every year, the Apple manufacturer is preparing a new version of its operating system, iOS 16. Here’s everything you need to know about Apple. style software experience.
iOS 16 release date
If there is no official release date for iOS 16, you don’t have to be a Nobel laureate to say that the new version of the interface should be released together with the new iPhones, around the months of September or October 2022.
However, you already have the opportunity to test the interface. In fact, after three closed betas, a public beta was released on July 11, 2022. It allows any user of a compatible iPhone to install iOS 16 to try it out for themselves. We explain everything about the procedure to follow in the next part.
How to install iOS 16?
To update your iPhone to iOS 16, you need to visit beta.apple.com. Prefer to connect directly from an iPhone to Safari, it will save time. You will need your Apple account ID and password.
There you just have to follow the instructions.

What’s new in iOS 16?
Although we are far from the swarm of new features that iOS 15 offers, iOS 16 still packs a few new features, starting with the most important of course: the ability to customize the lock screen.
Lock Screen: Is iOS “Androidizing”?
The eternal debate between iOS guarantors and Android fans (if it still exists) is very often related to the same topic: the customization capabilities that would be most important in Android. And although it doesn’t matter, Apple has decided to “revolutionize” its lock screen.
Now it’s possible to simply change the style of the clock by applying color filters to it, or even add some pretty well-thought-out widgets. You can also save several different lock screens according to uses and even associate them with a concentration mode. Very practical.
Still on the lock screen, note that notifications are now at the bottom. They should also include little animations for those that will be updated regularly. Apple showed some examples during WWDC 2022, such as the arrival of an Uber or the score of a match that would be updated live.
One of the apps that has received the most improvements is iMessage. Within 15 minutes of sending a message, you can now modify or unsend it. Please note that up to five modifications are possible.
The only restriction: your interlocutor must also have iOS 16. It is also possible to mark a conversation as unread and thus keep a small bubble next to it.
Photo and video
Last year, Apple introduced the ability to extract text from any image. Now, this is also possible in videos. iOS 16 also suggests the interesting elements that can be extracted from an image, such as the number, at the bottom left of the image.
Another fun little addition: you can crop an object in a photo automatically by keeping your finger pressed on it. It can be a person, an animal, or even an inanimate object. We ourselves have tested it with a boat for example.
Other interesting little additions are worth noting. It is now possible to correct a text written in voice dictation on the fly, without even having to press a button again to restart the dictation.
We can also mention the few improvements made to Maps which will add more detailed maps. Another small point of comfort, security updates are now done in the background.
