Apple iOS 16 New Update Roll Out This Event
The Lock Screen in iOS 16 is more adaptable, customizable, and aesthetically pleasing. The new layering effect on the Lock Screen gives photographs a sense of depth by placing the subject in front of the time. The date and time can be customized to reflect the user’s personality by selecting from a variety of fonts and colors.
Widgets on the Lock Screen are styled after Apple Watch complications and provide quick access to a variety of useful metrics and notifications, including the date, the weather, the battery percentage, the alarm status, the time in a different time zone, the percentage complete of the Activity ring, and more. The new Live Activity feature allows users to monitor time-sensitive events, such as a sporting event, workout, rideshare, or food delivery order, without leaving the convenience of the Lock Screen.
Users can go back and change or recall just-sent messages, retrieve just-deleted ones, and mark entire threads as unread for subsequent perusal. SharePlay is now coming to Messages, so you may watch or listen to a movie or song in sync with a friend while conversing in the same app.
