Apple has today seeded its third public betas of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16. Today’s update continues the public beta cycle that started in July, allowing anyone to install the new updates for iPhone and iPad ahead of their official debut in the fall.
Changes to the iPhone Lock Screen are arguably iOS 16’s most major update, bringing new personalization options that allow users to change the look of the date and time with type styles and colour choices, add widgets to their Lock Screen to get information at a glance, such as upcoming calendar events, the weather and battery levels, relocated notifications, and more.
The new update for iPhone includes the ability to recall and edit sent iMessages, schedule mail, collaborate via Messages, improved Focus options, Live Text for video, multi-stop routing in Maps, Apple Pay Later for users in the US, a rebuilt Home app, new accessibility tools, and more.
iPadOS 16 includes many of the core features of iOS 16, with the exception of Lock Screen updates. The update includes shared tabs and bookmarks in Safari, Stage Manager – a new way to multitask on iPad with resizable windows and multiple overlapping windows in a single view, a new Weather app built specifically for iPad, a redesigned Game Center dashboard, and more.
