What Are the Features of iOS 16 Compared to iOS 15?

Screen Locking

Compared with iOS 15, the lock screen interface of iOS 16 is relatively more optimized. Some important optimizations are the lock screen gallery and suggested photos, which allow you to browse a gallery of many options, each with a unique backdrop, and a stylized view of the date and time. In addition, the iOS system also intelligently suggests photos from your library that look great on the lock screen. It can also show expressive font styles and colors as well as the appearance of the date and time on the lock screen by customizing the font, color, or position on the lock screen.



You can edit the message within 15 minutes after sending it, and you can cancel sending any message within 2 minutes. When you have no time to reply, you can mark the message as unread, and you can also restore the most recently deleted message within 30 days after deleting it. During the chat, you can also share synchronized activities with friends, such as movies, music, exercise, games, etc. It can not only share entertainment activities, but also work synchronously, such as sending project cooperation invitations in the "message", and everyone in the thread will be automatically added to the document, spreadsheet, or project.



The Home application is newly designed to make it easier for you to navigate, organize, view, and control all attachments. The improvement of infrastructure improves the performance of the smart home, making it more efficient and reliable. The enhancement of the underlying architecture can achieve faster and more reliable performance, especially for families with many smart accessories. Use home applications to communicate and control connected accessories more effectively from multiple devices at the same time. The new part on the iPhone lock screen allows you to view the status of your home and quickly access your favorite accessories from the lock screen.

All in all, there are too many things to say about iOS 16. Among many features supported by iOS 16, the most intuitive change after upgrading to iOS 16 is the change in the display interface, the lock screen can display widgets, and the font becomes rounded and thicker. Another thing I am most pleased with is that the content of the notification center appears preferentially at the bottom instead of stacked from top to bottom, and there are three modes to choose from. Also, there are more choices for wallpapers.

How Does It Feel After Upgrading to iOS 16?

Now that iOS 16 has been released, should you immediately update to the latest operating system or continue using iOS 15? Are most users having a great experience or there are still many inevitable bugs waiting there? let’s analyze it from an objective perspective.


In short, it is undeniable that the arrival of iOS 16 has provided many great new features for your iPhone. The most obvious is the amazing customized screen locking. There are also new functions in Focus. You can edit and cancel sending a message, arrange email in Mail, dictation function is greatly improved too, as well as the touch keyboard.


No iOS version is bug-free, and you may always encounter problems that have not existed before. In other words, between the new features and functions in iOS 16.1 and later, we do think that if most users upgrade to the latest version, things will be better. The only deficiency is that your iPhone will be a little slow in the first few days after the upgrade, and the battery life will be a little shorter - this is not surprising.
