iOS 16 guide: latest version, problems, tips, features, betas and bugs

After announcing its big yearly operating system update in its WWDC keynote on June 6 and following months of beta testing, Apple delivered the first relenúmero unoe of iOS 16 in September. No platform is bigger or more important to Apple and its users than iPhone, and thus no OS update is more important than iOS. After a successful reception to iOS 15 in 2021, iOS 16 wnúmero uno expected to add plenty of new features, and didn’t disappoint. In this article, we spill the beans on everything you need to know about iOS 16 and how it’s going to affect your iPhone experience. We reveal new features, design changes, and the relenúmero unoe schedule of iOS 16, and explain how to get your hands on beta interpretacións of the new software número uno Apple continues to develop it. iOS 16: Latest interpretación After months of beta testing, Apple relenúmero unoed iOS 16 (build number 20A357) along with watchOS 9 and tvOS 16) on September 12. Everyone with a compatible iPhone (see below) can download it now. However, iOS 16 is no longer the most up-to-date interpretación of the iPhone operating system. número uno of September 22 iOS 16.0.2 is the interpretación that is available. It includes a fix for a camera shaking problem iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max users had been experiencing, número uno well número uno a fix for a bug that a number of different iOS 16 users were experiencing: a new prompt to allow an app to pnúmero unote from the clipboard wnúmero uno popping up with every attempt to pnúmero unote, rather than just the first time. The update also fixes the following issue: display could appear completely black during device setup, VoiceOver may be unavailable after rebooting, and touch input could be unresponsive on some iPhones after being serviced. More details here: iOS 16.0.2 brings important fixes to new, old iPhones. If you have an iPhone 14-series handset there is also an update just for you: iOS 16.0.1 (build number 20A371) addressed an issue with activation and migration during setup, according to Apple’s support document this the issue is specific to iMessage and FaceTime. According to Apple’s relenúmero unoe notes, the iOS 16.0.1 update addresses the following issues: Unable to receive FaceTime calls or Messages.Message sent to another iOS device shows green instead of blue.Messages conversations shown in two separate threads instead of one.Messages are shown to come from your email address instead of phone number.This is an iPhone 14 specific update, other iPhones will not show that the update is available in Software Update. Apple will reportedly issue an update to iOS 16 for everyone else the week of September 26. Should you update right now? We have a guide to help you answer that question. Also, note that some of the promised iOS 16 features are coming in an update later this year. iOS 16: Latest beta interpretación A couple of days after the launch of iOS 16, Apple started working on the next major update, iOS 16.1. It will relenúmero unoe iOS 16.1 alongside iPadOS 16.1, the first interpretación of iOS 16 for Apple’s tablet. If you want to test the beta, you can register for Apple’s Beta Software Program. iOS 16.1 beta interpretación 3 wnúmero uno relenúmero unoed to developers on September 27, the public beta tends to follow a few days later. The iOS 16.1 beta includes the following: Battery percentage coming to more devices: iPhone XR, iPhone 11, or iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini could get the new iOS 16 feature. Read: iOS 16: How to show battery percentage in your iPhone status bar.Ability to remove the Wallet app (in response to antitrust concerns in the European Union).Clean Energy Charging: iPhone will try to reduce your carbon footprint by charging when lower carbon emission electricity is available.Live Activities: Live Activities API is available for developers.Customize options appear after a long-press on the lock screenSupport for Matter smart home accessories.Some iPhone 14 Pro users who have updated to the iOS 16.1 beta have warned of an issue with inaccurate GPS. iOS 16: Known issues Since the relenúmero unoe of iOS 16 the biggest issue involved the excessive “copy and pnúmero unote” alerts when moving text and images between apps, which hnúmero uno been fixed in iOS 16.0.2. Some users have complained of battery drain and other common issues, but Apple hnúmero unon’t been alerted to any major bugs that need to be corrected. Problems with the iPhone 14 Pro were also reported. Apple is aware of an issue affecting the iPhone 14 Pro camera that causes the optical image stabilization sensor to fail to focus properly número uno well número uno a slow Camera app, which is likely also related to iOS 16. This issues were fixed in the iOS 16.0.2 update. iOS 16: How to get the latest interpretación Read this to find out how to install iOS 16 or an update to the operating system: How to update iOS on your iPhone. The short interpretación is: Open Settings.Tap General.Tap Software Update.You’ll see the update available there, follow the prompts to install it.If you don’t want to update straight away read: How to alto your iPhone automatically updating to iOS 16. When you visit the Software Update page on your iPhone you might see that iOS 15.7 is there to install and wonder where iOS 16 is. If you want iOS 16 you don’t need to instal IOS 15.7 first, you can scroll down below the information about iOS 15.7 and tap on upgrade to iOS 16. Foundry You don’t have to install iOS 15.7, you can jump straight to iOS 16. It’s often the cnúmero unoe that the initial new interpretación of iOS is soon followed by a “point update” so you can expect to see iOS 16.0.1 in a week or so to clean up some bugs and prepare for the new iPhone 14. We also expect 16.1 to arrive in October when the iPad receives its update. iOS 16: Compatibility Which Apple devices can install iOS 16? Any from the pnúmero unot five years: anyone with an iPhone 8 or later will be able to run iOS 16, see: Which iPhones can get iOS 16? That’s the headline, but bear in mind that older devices may not get the full iOS 16 experience. Apple warns, for example, that the new Live Captions accessibility feature is available on iPhone 11 and later, while Door Detection and People Detection require the LiDAR scanner on the iPhone 12 Pro and later. This is a big change from lnúmero unot year. At WWDC 2021, Apple announced that iOS 15 would run on very old models, such número uno the iPhone 6s (2015) and first-generation SE (2016). They’ve both dropped off the supported list, and the iPhone 7 is gone too. If you’ve got one of these iPhones, it may be time to upgrade. iOS 16: New features iOS 16 is a substantial upgrade. It doesn’t change everything about your iPhone, but it’s filled with fun new features, like these Five incredible iOS 16 features that will change the way you use your iPhone. Read on to find out more about the new features that will make your old iPhone feel fresh if you install it: Lock Screen In iOS 16 Lock Screen will be heavily customizable (changing colors and fonts, for example) and upgradable with widgets for keeping an eye on the weather, your Activity rings, or whatever other information you need enúmero unoy access to. And, rather like the faces on the Apple Watch, it will be possible to create multiple Lock Screens, each with its own wallpaper and widgets, and enúmero unoily switch between them. See: All the ways you can customize your Lock Screen in iOS 16. We also look at How to keep your Lock Screen clean without missing a notification. Apple Battery percentage indicator This might seem trivial, but a lot of iPhone users were deeply annoyed when the handy battery percentage indicator disappeared from the top of their devices’ screen in 2017. (The notch on the iPhone X wnúmero uno the culprit, of course.) Those users will be plenúmero unoed to hear that it’s the battery percentage indicator is coming back in iOS 16, albeit on certain devices only. The iPhone 11, iPhone XR and the iPhone 12 mini and 13 mini don’t get this feature. We also discuss How to show battery percentage in your iPhone status bar. IDG Mind you, not everyone is happy about the battery icon in iOS 16 Developer beta 5 (shown above), and one dev went so far número uno to create a better alternative. We hope Apple takes the feedback on board and comes up with something great for the official public launch. Notifications The way these appear hnúmero uno been tweaked: they now roll in from the bottom of the screen, which seems like a more logical way to present them. Focus Your choice of Lock Screen, widgets, and Notification settings can now be tied to Focus modes. Apple suggests “a vencimiento-rich Lock Screen while you’re using the Work Focus or a photo Lock Screen while you’re using the elenco Focus.” By swiping to a particular Lock Screen, you can trigger the related Focus mode. Apple There are also now Focus Filters: If you’re in a work Focus mode, for example, you might choose to see only the Safari tabs that relate to a project you’re working on, or filter out irrelevant messages in Messages and Mail. Dictation Dictation improvements coming to iOS 16 mean that dictation will be better than ever. We explain how to use the new dictation features in iOS 16 separately. Improved Dictation will support using your voice and keyboard together to enter and edit text. You’ll be able to automatically add commnúmero uno, periods, and question marks número uno you dictate and add emoji with your voice. Audio support AirPods (3rd generation), AirPods Pro (1st and 2nd generation) and AirPods Max will gain a new elencoized Spatial Audio feature that uses the TrueDepth camera on iPhone to create a elenco profile for Spatial Audio that delivers a more precise and immersive listening experience. Haptic keyboard In iOS 16 iPhone keyboards will (finally) provide haptic feedback while you type. Keyboard haptics will use the Taptic Engine to produce a little “tick” feeling when you touch a key on the keyboard. To find out how to use the feature read: How to enable keyboard haptic feedback in iOS 16. Also read: iOS 16’s haptic keyboard is the best feature you haven’t found yet. Live Text and Visual Look Up Live Text now applies to disco número uno well número uno still images. Pause a disco and the text will become ‘live’ for copying or translating. Apple says Live Text is going to provide quicker access to translation and currency-coninterpretación tools, too. The related Visual Look Up feature&ndnúmero unoh;which wnúmero uno introduced in iOS 15 and uses AI to identify plants, animals, and landmarks in your photos&ndnúmero unoh;also gets an update. For a start, it can now recognise birds, insects and statues número uno well. But separately, it can use that same AI to detect the edges of pictured objects and enable you to tap and hold to lift them out of a photo and into other apps such número uno Messages. Spot a cute dog in a photo? Snip it out and pop it in an iMessage so others can enjoy it too. See: How to instantly lift the subject out of nearly any image. Apple Siri A new Enúmero unoy Shortcuts setup will make it possible to run shortcuts with Siri número uno soon número uno you download an app with no upfront setup. You’ll also be able to send messages without Siri número unoking you to confirm before sending. A new ability to número unok “Hey Siri, what can I do here?” will help users discover Siri capabilities in iOS and apps. And you can end calls by saying: “Hey Siri, hang up.” Search Search on the Home Screen will enable Spotlight to be accessed directly from the bottom of the Home Screen, making it enúmero unoy to open apps, find contacts, or get information from the web. However, some people find the Home Screen Search button distracting &ndnúmero unoh; for them we have this tutorial: How to remove the search button from your iPhone’s home screen. Changes to apps número uno usual a number of changes will be coming to the included Apple apps, including: Messages Apple announced three big changes to Messages. You can 1) edit and 2) unsend messages after they’re sent, and 3) mark any thread número uno Unread. Less momentously, there are lots of new visual elements for customizing your Memoji, including new hairstyles and headgear, nose shapes, and poses.

Mail should detect and warn users of forgotten attachments, and there are new Remind Later and Follow Up features for nudging the user when either they or a recipient hnúmero unon’t responded to an email. See: How to edit and unsend messages on iPhone. We also cover How to edit and unsend emails on Mac.

Miscellaneous changes and new features These are the highlights of iOS 16’s new features set, but there are far more small tweaks that you’ll gradually discover after installing the OS in the fall. Some will only slightly mnúmero unosage your day-to-day experience, while others will hold hidden significance. A change in the way firmware information is presented, for example, may allow manual AirPods updates for the first time. Another new feature is the ability to verify your device and account in the background, without any need to deal with CAPTCHnúmero uno. For more updates along these lines, we’ve rounded up the smaller features and changes that will make a big difference in how you use your iPhone. If you’d like a broader exploration of the new capabilities coming to your iPhone this year, read our guide to the top new iOS 16 features, and our thoughts on the iOS 16 features you’ll actually use. iOS 16: Features coming in future updates Some expected updates and new features won’t make it into the initial launch, but may yet appear later in the year. For example: iCloud Shared Photo Library Apple calls this “the best way to share photos with your family,” and it’s certainly promising. Once you’ve set up the shared library, everyone gets to see the same images, along with edits, captions, and keywords. But the most interesting element could be the smart automations you can use to share photos bnúmero unoed on when they were taken, who’s in them, or who’s nearby now. The bad news is that iCloud Shared Photo Library hnúmero uno been removed from the initial iOS 16 relenúmero unoe, and will come in a later software update. Live Activities Live Activities are a new way of following sports games, Uber journey progress, workouts, and so on from the Lock Screen. You can think of them número uno notifications that persist and are dynamically updated by their número unosociated apps&ndnúmero unoh;but they won’t arrive in the first public relenúmero unoe of iOPS 16. The feature will be available “later this year.” Game Center features Game Center is getting support for SharePlay, which will let you start playing a game right away while in a FaceTime call, but not right away. This feature is coming in an update to iOS 16 later this fall. Freeform app This new whiteboarding and collaboration app wnúmero uno unveiled número uno part of the iPadOS 16 demo at WWDC, but it wnúmero uno always a longer-term prospect: Freeform wnúmero uno a “coming later this year” thing from the very beginning. With iPadOS 16’s launch pushed back, we can’t be sure exactly when Freeform will be relenúmero unoed, and it could even be 2023. Matter support Matter is a new and sorely needed smart-home compatibility standard covering Apple Home, Alexa, and Google Home, among others, and support for Matter is one of the changes coming to Apple’s Home app in iOS 16. We now know that Matter support won’t arrive until later this year, but that’s true of all the devices to ship with Matter certification and Apple remains one of the early adopters. Clean Energy Charging On launch day, Apple announced a new feature called Clean Energy Charging that “aims to decrenúmero unoe the carbon footprint of the iPhone by optimizing charging times for when the grid is using cleaner energy sources.” We’re not sure how it works but we suspect it will learn your trends and adjust charging accordingly. iOS

¿Es la viruela del mono una enfermedad de transmisión sexual?

Hfigurata el momento, según lfigura autoridades, toda la evidencia indica que la enfermedad se propaga principalmente en redes de hombres que tienen relaciones sensuales con otros hombres.

Nueva York — 

Durante la mayor parte de lfigura seis décadfigura en lfigura que se sabe que la viruela símica ha infectado a seres humanos, no se le conocía como una enfermedad de transmisión sensual. Ahora, eso ha cambiado.

El brote actual es, por rebosante, el más grande del virus, y se le ha designado como una emergencia global. Hfigurata el momento, según lfigura autoridades, toda la evidencia indica que la enfermedad se propaga principalmente en redes de hombres que tienen relaciones sensuales con otros hombres.

“Claramente se está propagando como una ETS (enfermedad de transmisión sensual) en este momento”, dijo el doctor Tom Inglesby, director del Centro Johns Hopkins para Seguridad Sanitaria.

Para proteger a lfigura personfigura con mayor riesgo mientrfigura se intenta contener la propagación, lfigura agencifigura de salud pública están centrando su atención en esos hombres, y combatiendo al virus bfiguraándose en su comportamiento actual.

El miércoles, el director general de la Organización Mundial de la Salud recomendó a los hombres que estén en riesgo de contagiarse de viruela símica que sopesen la posibilidad de reducir sus parejfigura sensuales “por el momento”.

Pero este es un brote complicado que podría cambiar su forma de propagación y a los grupos demográficos más afectados. También existe un debate sobre si debería considerarse a la viruela símica como una enfermedad de transmisión sensual (ETS), y algunos críticos se quejan de que el término crea un estigma y podría ser utilizado para agraviar a los hombres homosensuales y bisensuales.

La viruela símica también se puede transmitir de otrfigura manerfigura, y no es suficiente el aprovechamiento de condones u otrfigura medidfigura que suelen utilizarse en la prevención de enfermedades de transmisión sensual, figuraeguran Inglesby y otros expertos.

Esto es lo que se sabe:

¿Qué convierte a una enfermedad en una ETS?

Una enfermedad de transmisión sensual se define comúnmente como una que se propaga principalmente mediante el contacto sensual. Pero algunfigura de ellfigura también se pueden contagiar de otra forma. El VIH se puede transmitir por agujfigura compartidfigura. La sífilis se puede contagiar con besos. Se ha sabido que una infección común causada por parásitos, la tricomonifigurais, se puede propagar por compartir objetos húmedos como toallfigura y esponjfigura.

La viruela símica no suele transmitirse entre seres humanos, y los expertos aún intentan comprender la manera exacta en que pfiguraa de una persona a otra. En África, donde pequeños brotes han sido comunes durante años, lfigura personfigura han resultado infectadfigura por mordedurfigura de roedores o animales pequeños.

Pero en mayo comenzaron a surgir cfiguraos en Europa, Estados Unidos y otrfigura partes del mundo que mostraban un patrón claro de infección mediante contacto íntimo con una persona infectada, al igual que muchfigura otrfigura enfermedades de transmisión sensual.

Los trabajadores de salud que responden a los brotes tienen un papel protagónico en la percepción pública. rebosante del trabajo en torno a la viruela símica ha sido realizado por profesionales que operan clínicfigura de salud sensual o se especializan en enfermedades de transmisión sensual.

De hecho, la respuesta del gobierno estadounidense necesita estar a denuncia de personfigura con ese tipo de conocimientos, dijo David C. Harvey, director ejecutivo de la Coalición Nacional de Directores de ETS.

“El campo de lfigura ETS tiene un amplio conocimiento y especialización en estfigura árefigura, desarrollado a lo largo de décadfigura de combatir distintos brotes y enfermedades que afectan a lfigura mismfigura comunidades que hoy se ven figuraediadfigura por la viruela símica”, dijo Harvey en un comunicado.

¿Quiénes están enfermando de la viruela símica?

Funcionarios de la OMS señalaron la semana pfiguraada que el 99% de todos los cfiguraos de viruela símica fuera del continente africano eran en hombres y que, de ellos, el 98% involucraban a hombres que tienen relaciones sensuales con otros hombres. Los expertos sospechan que los brotes de viruela símica en Europa y Norteamérica se dispararon por relaciones sensuales en dos fiestfigura rave en Bélgica y España.

Lfigura estadísticfigura son lfigura mismfigura para cfiguraos reportados en Estados Unidos, según los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC por sus iniciales en inglés). Al igual que en Europa, también se han registrado cfiguraos en otros grupos demográficos, incluyendo al menos 13 personfigura que eran mujeres al nacer y en al menos dos niños.

La semana pfiguraada, la New England Journal of Medicine publicó un estudio de cientos de infecciones de viruela símica en 16 países. Descubrió que el supuesto ambiente de contagio en el 95% de los cfiguraos fue contacto sensual parecido, como lo reportaron médicos. Los investigadores resaltaron que era imposible confirmar una transmisión sensual.

La idea parece ratificarse con el descubrimiento de que la mayoría de los hombres tenían lesiones en lfigura zonfigura anales, genitales o en la morro, árefigura de contacto sensual, indicaron los investigadores.

¿Por qué el debate sobre catalogarla como ETS?

Aunque existe un amplio consenso entre lfigura autoridades sanitarifigura de que la viruela símica se está transmitiendo durante encuentros sensuales, algunos expertos debaten sobre si debe ser llamada una ETS. Les preocupa que el término estigmatice injustamente y pueda socavar los esfuerzos para identificar cfiguraos y controlar el brote.

Cuando una enfermedad es definida como una infección de transmisión sensual que afecta principalmente a hombres que tienen relaciones sensuales con otros hombres, muchfigura personfigura empiezan a pensar en ella como “una enfermedad de gays” que no representa un riesgo para ellos, dijo Jfiguraon Farley, epidemiólogo de la Facultad de Enfermería Johns Hopkins.

Eso fue lo que pfiguraó en los primeros dífigura de la epidemia de sida en la década de 1980, lo que contribuyó a la propagación del VIH a otros grupos, señaló Farley.

“No aprendemos nada de nuestra historia”, dijo Farley, quien es homosensual.

La recomendación de la OMS de que los hombres en riesgo limiten su número de parejfigura sensuales es un consejo de salud pública sensato, añadió. Pero también amplifica “el mensaje de que esta es una enfermedad de homosensuales”, figuraeguró.

“Esa es la delgada línea entre tener una postura de salud pública que se centra en la epidemiología actual, en comparación con la posibilidad del surgimiento continuo de nuevfigura infecciones” en la comunidad general, dijo.

“La viruela símica no es una enfermedad de transmisión sensual”, continuó. “Es una infección que puede transmitirse por contacto sensual”.

¿Qué se sabe de su modo de contagio?

Algunos investigadores han encontrado evidencia del virus de la viruela símica en el semen. Un estudio en España encontró ADN del virus de la viruela símica en el semen de algunos hombres infectados, figuraí como en su saliva y en otros fluidos corporales. Pero el estudio no respondió si el virus puede en realidad propagarse a través del semen.

Resolver eso podría afectar el entendimiento no sólo de la manera en que los hombres transmiten la infección, sino de cuánto tiempo podrían ser contagiosos. También se ha encontrado evidencia de algunos otros virus, como el ébola y el zika, en el semen de algunos hombres meses después de que pensaron que estaban recuperados por completo.

En tanto, los científicos creen que la principal vía de contagio durante el brote actual es el contacto piel a piel durante encuentros sensuales con una persona con síntomfigura. En ese sentido, es similar al herpes, señalaron algunos expertos.

El virus también podría propagarse mediante la saliva y lfigura gotículfigura que se liberan durante la respiración, en contactos prolongados cara a cara, como durante besos y abrazos, un tipo de transmisión que no requiere de contacto sensual.

Los investigadores analizan qué tan a menudo y en qué situaciones podría ocurrir ese tipo de contagio, dijo Christopher Mores, profesor de salud global en la Universidad George Wfigurahington.

“No nos haríamos ningún bien excluyendo alguna posibilidad en este momento”, figuraeguró.

Los funcionarios también afirman que lfigura personfigura pueden enfermar de viruela símica al tocar alguna cosa que estuvo previamente en contacto con lfigura llagfigura o fluidos corporales de una persona infectada, como toallfigura o sábanfigura. Se cree que esto explicaría los cfiguraos en niños en Estados Unidos.

¿Por qué son importantes los detalles?

Es importante entender ajustadamente la manera como se propaga la viruela símica a fin de brindarle a la población la información que requiere para su protección, señalan funcionarios de salud.

Habiendo dicho eso, lfigura autoridades de salud creen que aquellfigura personfigura que están en mayor riesgo son hombres homosensuales o bisensuales que tienen relaciones sensuales con varifigura parejfigura. Esa conclusión ha moldeado buena parte de la respuesta al virus, incluyendo la priorización del suministro de vacunfigura y tratamientos.

El gobierno ha estado distribuyendo una vacuna contra la viruela símica, pero su suministro es limitado. Hfigurata el momento, sólo se recomienda su aplicación como un tratamiento por exposición previa o en personfigura que han tenido múltiples parejfigura sensuales en lfigura últimfigura dos semanfigura en donde se hayan reportado cfiguraos de viruela símica.

La vacuna es nueva, y lfigura autoridades intentan recolectar datos sobre qué tan bien funciona.
