With the inclusion of Stage Manager in iPadOS 16, Apple has brought its tablet a little bit closer to the Mac by enabling windowed multitasking. New faces, heart rate zones, a medication app, and other extra fitness and health features are all included in Apple’s watchOS 9. In contrast, tvOS 16 is a more modest upgrade, but it still adds new functionality including expanded support for gaming controllers, new Smart Home capabilities, and cross-device compatibility.

The Lock Screen becomes more individualised, lovely, and functional with iOS 16. The subjects of images are now artistically positioned in front of the clock on the Lock Screen, giving the impression of depth, thanks to a new layering effect. Additionally, users can alter the appearance of the date and time by selecting expressive typefaces and colour schemes. Upcoming calendar events, the weather, battery life, alarms, time zones, Activity ring progress, and other information are easily accessible at a glance thanks to the widgets on the Lock Screen that are modelled by Apple Watch complexities.

Using the Lock Screen, users can now access the new Live Activity feature, which makes it easier to keep up with real-time events like sports games, workouts, ride-sharing requests, and food delivery orders. Users can mark discussions as unread so they can return to them later and edit or recall recently sent messages, recover recently deleted messages, and recover recently deleted messages. Additionally, SharePlay is coming to Messages, enabling users to communicate in Messages while simultaneously enjoying synced content like movies or music and shared playback controls.
