The next annual conference (WWDC 2022) for developers was held on June 6. The novelties of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS 13 Ventura were presented at the WWDC 2022. Let us discuss them in more detail.
The operating system for the iPhone – iOS 16, received an updated lock screen. Now users have access to wide settings to create a unique design of the “face” of their device. So, for example, you can change the font of the clock, add some status widgets (as on the Apple Watch), and create a whole gallery of wallpapers with separate filter settings. They also added the function of individual selection of libraries and the mode of mixing photos.
And all of this will no longer be hidden behind notifications, as notifications are now only displayed at the bottom of the screen.
The new version of the operating system also improves the focus mode. For example, you can block third-party notifications to concentrate on work and even tabs in Safari, messages, emails, etc.
