The most notable change in iOS 16 is the redesigned lock screen. Widgets, which can be added to the lock screen, are now a viable option for displaying notifications. These widgets are visible at all times, even when the iPhone 14 Pro is turned off, thanks to the always-on display.

If you use iMessage regularly, you’ll be pleased to hear that many improvements have been made to iOS 16. You now have up to 15 minutes from sending a message to make the necessary changes and up to two minutes to withdraw each message you have sent. To remind you to reply to messages later, Apple has added a “mark as unread” option. In iOS 16, you can now move forward or backward in audio messages, which is great news for anyone who likes this format.

In iOS 16, users of Apple’s built-in Mail app have the ability to undo an email soon after sending, in addition to a new scheduled send option. There’s also a “remember me” option, similar to Gmail’s, that brings previously sent emails to the top of your inbox and unhides them the first time you check your inbox.

Keyboard haptics, which let you feel vibrations as you write, is a great new feature in iOS 16. Until now, haptics was only accessible in applications or after unlocking the device to use a feature like the flashlight. In iOS 16, the new haptics can be activated in the system settings.
