iOS 16 has been recently released for iPhone 8 and newer models. It has been reported that certain features are exclusive to the newly-launched iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhons 14 Pro Max. While the most recent iteration is full of new features, including privacy, security, and accessibility. Here are some of the features listed below. These features are pretty much available for all iPhone models that support the new iOS 16 software.
1. Lock Screen
The new Lock Screen is probably the most talked about and the most noticeable feature of iOS 16. You may now customize the font, colour, and placement of elements on the Lock Screen. Want to retrofit your Lock Screen more? Choose from a variety of options to change font styles and customize the look of date as well as time.
On the Lock Screen, photo subjects are dynamically displayed in front of the time, and you may also select widgets, such as weather, calendar events, time zones, and battery levels.
2. Focus Mode
The Focus Mode in iOS 16 has gotten an increase. Firstly, the Lock Screen on iOS 16 allows you to now activate Focus modes with a swipe. A Lock Screen Wallpaper and/or widget is also available for customization, according to the company. This feature will be extended to other third-party apps.

Set limits within Apple apps such as Calendar, Mail, Messages, and Safari for each Focus you enable. Have a Focus turn on automatically at a certain time or location or while using a certain app, according to Apple.
If you are an iPhone user, you should know how important the Messages app is. Along with all the features you liked in Messages, Apple is now offering a few additional tweaks to enhance the experience. A message can now be edited for up to 15 minutes after it, and recipients will be able to see a record of edits.
Other features say they have taken a breath away from mail services. Sent a message to a wrong contact? Not to worry, as you will now have two minutes to unsend it. However, you may also indicate a message as unread. This feature is likely for individuals who are busy and eager to respond to text later once they have time to spare. However, you may also recover recently deleted messages (up to 30 days after deleting them).
Passkeys are a popular tool to help users navigate websites and apps on different devices, including iPads, by scanning the QR code with an iPhone, and using a Face ID or Touch ID to provide authentication.
Passkeys are endtoend encrypted and sync across your Apple devices through iCloud Keychain. They "never leave your device and are specific to the website you created them for," and the private key is never kept on a web server.
5. Live Text
The feature of Live Text in videos is now interactive. It allows you to pause a video and perform functions like copy and paste, lookup, and translating. Enjoy, however, the video will be expanded, thanks to additional support for Japanese, Korean, and Ukrainian texts.
The iOS 16 release carries a lot more than we mentioned above. Here are a few things you can look out for. There is an iCloud Shared Photo Library that allows users to share photos with up to five other users. The Mail app is getting a scheduling feature for emails, and there is a new way to dictate on iOS 16, which allows people to enter and edit texts. Automatic punctuation allows commas, periods, and questions as you dictate.
The iCloud Shared Photo Library will be released later this year, and an Apple CarPlay will be available in 2023.
