iOS 16.2 is coming soon. To do that flawlessly, there’s a new beta version for developers to test everything. That means you can expect some new features and improvements on your iPhone.
If you have an iPhone, there’s a good chance it’s running iOS 16 right now. It’s the operating system that came to the older models when the iPhone 14 launched (that is if your phone isn’t old enough).
iOS 16.2: all the features and improvements for the iPhone
The second developer beta of iOS 16.2 has just been released. It shows a number of notable changes compared to iOS 16.1, which is probably now running on your phone. But what is really different now?
Accessibility on your iPhone
Apple has overhauled the Accessibility menu. It also comes with various options to make iPhone user-friendly.
Most notably, in the new beta version of iOS 16.2, you can completely customize the Accessibility mode to your liking. This way you can adjust the layout of the menus on your iPhone. For example, consider larger icons or a sipler lock screen.
Work is therefore underway on a general new interface codenamed Clarity (freely translated: clarity). However, this one is not live yet. This replaces the so-called Springboard, the current interface.
Apple seems to have fixed an issue within the Camera app on your iPhone. Previously, this app was unable to swipe back to your lock screen. This is possible again in this beta version.
In the second beta version of iOS 16..2, there is now also a new widget. You can add this to your iPhone’s lock screen. This one is especially meant for Meditation. It is available in two different sizes.
In the first beta version of iOS 16.2 for your iPhone, we already saw a new widget for Sleep. So you can take your rest in the new version of the operating software.
Live Activities in iOS 16.2
A new Live Activities option is coming in iOS 16.2. This feature, which is special for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, will have the opportunity for even more frequent updates.
New animations can be found in the Music app. You will see this on your iPhone when you play or pause a song or when you skip or rewind a song.
