With the opening of WWDC next week, iOS 16 will officially meet with everyone, and Apple engineers who have been working from home for a year can hand over a job? Let's take a look at the changes and adjustments that iOS 16 has exposed.
Not surprisingly, iOS 16 may be another version of Precision Squeeze Toothpaste, but the biggest attraction of this version may be two hidden "Easter eggs".
The first official certification of the iPhone without bangs
The news that the two models of the iPhone 14 Pro use "pill-shaped" punching screens has been out for a long time, and on iOS 16, this news is expected to be confirmed.
After the iPhone removes the bangs, the punch design leaves more space at the top of the screen, and if that happens, Apple may make some changes to the UI design specifications on the top of the iPhone. WWDC is mainly aimed at Apple developers, such a rule adjustment, the requirements for developers are not small.
AR/VR glasses may be present
There are rumors that Apple is developing an AR/VR glasses product, and the important function of this product is to link up with devices such as iPhones, or call up iPhone resources. Then, there will be corresponding functional integration in iOS 16.
The app store's changelog has unexpectedly appeared the word "realityOS", realityOS is referred to as rOS, the internal code name is "Oak", is Apple's AR/VR glasses exclusive operating system.
Next up are some tweaks to iOS 16, so you can see if there's anything you're looking forward to.
Information screen display and notification function updates
iOS 16 will make "significant" improvements to the notification feature, with users having more interactive options in the notification bar, thanks to the information screen display technology.
iOS 16 enriches a large number of lock screen widgets, such as weather, battery level and other information can be displayed in the off-screen state, with a refresh rate as low as 1Hz, power consumption will also be well controlled.
Buying an iPhone is like buying a membership, will hardware subscriptions come?
Apple is also developing a hardware subscription service, users can pay for iPhone, iPad or Mac on a monthly basis, instead of paying in installments, using this subscription service, you can subscribe to Apple Music members, just need to pay the monthly fee on time, you can regularly replace the latest iPhone every year.
It is expected that in iOS 16, this service will be reflected in the content of iCloud+ or Apple Pay.
Apple's signal patch, emergency satellite communications feature is expected to be released
Apple is said to be planning to add a satellite-based communication feature on the iPhone 14, which will be supported in iOS 16.
If this feature is released, the iPhone will be able to send text messages and make phone calls in emergency situations where there is no cell phone coverage. The iPhone's signal problems have always caused headaches for users, and the satellite communication function may not completely improve the daily networking experience of the iPhone, but at least everyone will not lose contact.
Overall, iOS 16 will not be completely redesigned, and the overall UI still continues the style of iOS 15, but behind these small updates, it is a larger functional adjustment. According to the well-known fruit fan Mark Gelman, iOS 16 will have new system interaction methods and new Apple applications, which is the most worthy of everyone's expectation.
The estimated minimum hardware requirement for iOS 16 is 3GB of running memory,Therefore, iOS 16 may not support devices such as Phone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, first-generation iPhone SE, iPhone 7, and iPod touchThese users should be ready to change machines.
