iOS 16 is expected to bring “major changes across the system” and some new Apple apps, according to a new report. The information comes from the latest issue of the Power On newsletter published by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. When Gurman was asked which operating system he thinks would get the most attention at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2022 event, Gurman replied that it would most likely be iOS 16. However, he does not expect Apple to completely redesign its operating system with its publication.
Gurman has also mentioned in the Power On newsletter that iOS 16 could introduce “new ways to interact” with the iPhone. Apple is expected to unveil iOS 16 during the WWDC 2022 event, which launches on June 6th. Previous reports have suggested that iOS 16 could include redesigned app icons, interactive widgets, a floating app window, and upgraded theme settings. It is also said to bring improvements to the camera app. Gurman has previously also stated that iOS 16 would bring significant improvements to messaging and health tracking features.
During the upcoming WWDC22 event, which kicks off on June 6, Apple was also able to unveil watchOS 9. In a recent report, Gurman suggested that Apple could introduce a new low-power mode with watchOS 9, which could support a few additional apps and features. The existing Power Reserve low-power mode only allows Apple Watch models to display the time. The Cupertino company is also likely to update more of the built-in dials currently available.
Apple is said to be in the process of upgrading its atrial fibrillation detection feature to the Apple Watch models. Through this upgrade, the smart rides would be able to calculate ‘burden’ – how often over a long period of time a person experiences this type of arrhythmia. This feature could also debut with watchOS 9 in June.
