Apple just announced its new iPhone software with an updated lock screen and more

Apple will allow users to edit and recall iMessages

Apple has added three major features to its messaging app, Messages. If the message is an iMessage and not a text message, users will be able to edit messages, recall messages sent in error, and repeat text messages so users can manage them later. These small tweaks will change the way nearly a billion people text. —Kif Leswing

iOS 16, Apple’s latest iPhone software announced

Apple has just announced iOS 16, the latest software for iPhone.

It’s “the biggest update to the lock screen, completely reinventing how it works,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering. It’s a brand new look that allows users to customize the lock screen with widgets – which were already available on the home screen – with a long press. Widgets are small icons that users can click to quickly access tools like the weather app.

The new lock screen allows more customization of the time and date font and color. It also allows users to mix their background photos throughout the day or choose animated backgrounds.

It will also change the way users see notifications so they don’t cover their background photo when their phone is locked. Instead of appearing at the top of the screen, notifications will appear at the bottom.

Focus on the Apple iPhone

Apple has also extended its focus feature to the lock screen. The tool lets users choose how to filter notifications, such as focusing only on work-related or personal messages.

Apple has also made significant changes to its iMessage app, including options to edit messages, unsend, and mark threads as unread.

iOS 16 will also extend SharePlay to iMessage, so users can watch or listen to media simultaneously so they can stop and start in the same place.

The software update will also make it easier to switch between typing and dictation.

People start heading to their seats before the opening speech. It’s pre-recorded, so there are plenty of big screens for everyone to tune into. And I like that there is a shaded area.

Here’s what you can expect

Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, is all about catering to software developers. They are the ones who create applications for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Watch and TV. This is usually when Apple unveils new tools for them and big new updates for the iPhone, iPad, and other platforms. Apple is getting ready to announce a big new iPad software update that adds better multitasking, so you can run more apps at the same time side-by-side. And the iPhone should get new lock screen updates. It may also announce new MacBook Airs. However, unlike September’s iPhone events, WWDC is usually more software-focused than hardware-focused. And, typically, the software announced at WWDC rolls out to everyone in the fall.

Homecoming for Apple employees after two years of working remotely

WWDC brings together Apple developers and the press for the first time in two years. But the event is also a homecoming for many Apple employees who have been teleworking for two years because of the pandemic. Some employees are meeting their teammates in person for the first time, such as those who have traveled from other major Apple offices, such as its facilities in Austin, Texas. Apple began requiring company employees to return to the office earlier this year. —Kif Leswing

Apple could also announce new products today

The Apple Store website is down, which suggests that Apple could also announce new products during the WWDC 2022 event. It still seems a little early to announce the augmented reality headset, so my bet is on some sort of new Mac. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggested during the weekend that Apple might be ready to announce a redesigned MacBook Air. It would include MagSafe charging, the latest Apple processor, and new colors.

Everyone is wondering about Apple’s headphones

Apple has been working on a headset for years. Reports suggest that it could be launched in 2022 or 2023. It is the only product that everyone is on the lookout for right now, as it would be a whole new area of ​​products for Apple. It might make sense for CEO Tim Cook and the team to announce the software for the headset, which would be called realityOS, as it’s a developer-focused event with people who would build the apps for the device. However, Bloomberg recently suggested we might not take a look. Still, we might get some clues as to what Apple is planning. The Company may integrate certain tools into existing software to allow developers to create virtual or augmented reality versions of their existing applications. If that happens, we know the headset can’t be far away. Or maybe we’ll be surprised and get a full teaser or announcement.

We are live from Cupertino for the first time since the start of the pandemic

We’re live from the Worldwide Developers Conference for the first time since the pandemic began. Apple invited media and developers to its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., to watch the keynote. But there are some differences with previous years. For one, we’re at headquarters instead of the San Jose Conference Center where Apple held the event for several years before the pandemic.

And the keynote is no longer live like it used to be. Instead, we’ll be watching a pre-recorded version, as everyone tunes in from home. Still, it shows that big tech events are beginning to return to some version of normality. Google’s developer conference in May was also held in person, but was not open to much of the press.
