Rancakmedia.com – Apple officially revealed iOS 16 at WWDC 2022, and showed off a number of improvements and new features the company is bringing to this operating system for iPhone. In the fall, Apple mobile devices, from the iPhone 8 to the latest version, will be able to run iOS 16.
The iPhone 14 will be released in September 2022, which is when iOS 16 is expected to debut.
“IOS 16 offers a variety of new features, customization possibilities, and, of course, a redesigned lock screen appearance,” said Apple Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi.

The following is a list of iOS 16 features released by Apple:
In iOS 16, users can now change the font and color used on the lock screen. Additional features include the ability to add widgets and the ability to install multiple lock screens simultaneously.
iOS users can now customize the appearance of their lock screen by simply swiping their finger over the screen.
To make it easier for consumers to customize the appearance of the lock screen, Apple has also provided various wallpapers to use.
