September 2022 has been one of the best times for the tech industry as many new devices have been launched and many more are to follow suit in the coming months. The ‘Far Out’ event held in California where the new iPhone 14 series was launched along with many other Apple devices.
Whenever there is a new device out in the market, it is immediately compared, positively by its users and negatively by its detractors, to the products of rival brands as well as its predecessors, where people add their own interpretations and subjective opinions.
As with any new device, we always get new features and specifications, in new models with very few exceptions, and the same holds true for operating systems as well. The new iOS 16 operating system was released for a handful of iPhone smartphone models on September 12, 2022.
It is available for iPhone 8 and some new smartphones where there are brand new features available for these phones that have iOS 16 such as improved cinematic mode, something that users had been constantly complaining about, on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The new system is replete with brand new features like accessibility, speed, privacy, and data security, but those that deserve a special mention are the ones mentioned below because it will help users to decide if it is worth their time and money or not.
The given features are available for all iPhone models that support iOS 16 operating system. Even though some people might be aware of them, it becomes necessary to list it out for those that are unable to gain more info about them.
