iPhone and iPad - Operating System (OS)

As you may know IOS 16, as well as iPadOS 16, was announced! Under will be explaining the new iOS 16 features;

Lock Screen

So now in iOS 16 the lock screens have been redesigned!

As you can see you can put widgets on your lock screen!

Get too many notifications? Now Apple made a very new organised bar with all your notifications at the bottom of the lock screen!

Different Lock Screens Depending on Your Focus

Depending on your different focuses your lock screen can change! Say I had no focus on, it would be my default lock screen but say I had the focus “Work” for example, I would make it so when I turn on the Work focus it changes my lock screen to the lock screen fitting in the focus!

Editing Your Lock Screen

Want to edit your lock screen? Just simply touch and hold your lock screen, then swipe. i think. Some developers might have put the WidgetKit API in their app, this means that you put widgets on your home screen! For example, you can put the uber widget on your lock screen to track your uber!

I guess this is the end of the coolest important things of iOS 16 Lock Screen i probably forgot i did i can feel it
If you want a more detailed iOS 16 Lock Screen features please press the button below this!

Apple Ecosystem is not an Apple device or product. It is a nickname given by people regarding how Apple devices work very well with other Apple devices. It is a combination of services, software configurations, and hardware capabilities that makes each Apple device works very well with every other Apple device.


CarPlay got an update! Its way redesigned too! This new CarPlay can also fit every screen in these supported cars!

CarPlay is also able to do everything with your car without going out of it!
Here’s a video of CarPlays sneak peak!

IOS 16, looks really really good.

I would really reccommend this video for a quick recap:

It looks like apple is putting a lot more thought and effort into this new version!


You can also un-send messages and edit them.

I’ve seen the whole thing, it’s really awesome, especially since I mainly use my iPad Pro as my main mobile gaming device.

I’ll add in a few other details, such as the new and really affordable MacBook Pro 13" with the M2 chip.

Yes, but only within 15 minutes after the message was sent.

Pay later seems dangerous for some people, 0 fees and 0 interest, however I feel like some people could get in some legal issues with this feature.

Hm, never heard of this before.

But I agree, this does sound risky. But, it’s similar to PayBright, which Apple currently uses, so I presume they’d use this for their “pay-later” feature.

@Joshua please don’t edit a wiki that doesn’t have anything to do with what you edited. :slight_smile:

I hope the 2023 recap is coming! :partying_face:


I’m making it
