Apple has officially announced the release date for the iOS 16 stable upgrade for all iPhone owners worldwide along with the iPhone 14 series. On September 12, you will finally be able to try out the new features if you did not install the iOS 16 beta on your iPhone. Having said that, let’s have a look at some fun new features that come with iOS 16.
iOS 16 Stable Update Release Date
In the months running up to its official release, the Apple has made eight developer beta and six public beta builds of iOS 16 available since it was first announced at WWDC 2022 back in June. Although Apple did not make this announcement live, it is included in the official iPhone 14 blog entries. So prepare your iPhones for the upcoming update, which will launch on Monday of next week! As usual, the software update will be free.
This version offers many-requested functionality rather than concentrating largely on UI changes like Google did with Material You. Additional features in iOS 16 include lock screen widgets, enhanced notification access, SharePlay, and Live Text, as well as new privacy tools including lockdown mode and Safety Check.
Additionally, you get a dedicated iPhone fitness app, the ability to mirror your Apple Watch on your iPhone, the option to manage prescriptions in the Health app, and other useful features. The ability to edit and unsend texts is also available in iMessage, which is fantastic. When the upgrade launches the next week, there is a lot to explore. The list of iOS 16-compatible devices is available via this website.
For those who are still unsure, Apple has previously said that the release of iPadOS 16 has been postponed. We may anticipate getting the iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura updates in mid- to late-October since iOS 16 will arrive first and the iPadOS 16 update will “launch as version 16.1 in a free software update.” Do you want to update your iPhone’s iOS right away?
