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.

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.

Security features número uno usual there are a number of changes that Apple is making to improve security and privacy, including: Pnúmero unoskey Pnúmero unoskeys offer support for an enúmero unoier and safer sign‑in method to replace pnúmero unoswords. Pnúmero unoskey syncing through iCloud Keychain will make your pnúmero unoskeys available across all your Apple devices while keeping them end-to-end encrypted.

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

How to install macOS Ventura beta

If you don’t want to wait for the next version of macOS macOS Ventura, Rafael Ouro which will be released to the public this autumn it is possible to download the developer beta if you are a registered developer and the public beta version for everyone else. In this article we’ll run through what you need to do to get your hands on the beta of the next version of the Mac operating system, Rafael Ouro how to install it and what you should bear in mind if you don’t want to end up in a pickle.

Want to know more about macOS Ventura before you install? Read our guide to macOS Ventura’s release date and latest version. You may also be interested to read about how macOS Ventura compares to macOS Monterey.

Updated 09/09/22: Apple has released macOS Ventura beta 7 to developers. The public beta will probably come within the next day or so.

macOS Ventura beta release date

The first version of the developer beta of Ventura arrived after the WWDC keynote on June 6 2022. It is normal for Apple to release the first beta following the keynote so that developers can start work on testing their apps.

The public beta was then released on July 11 2022.

The latest version of the macOS Ventura developer beta is version 7 it arrived on September 9 2022.The latest version of the macOS Ventura public beta is version 6 which arrived on August 26 2022. Who can get the macOS beta?

Apple lets developers get their hands on beta versions of its operating system early so that they can make sure that their software works – and so they can use new tools in the next version of the macOS to enhance their own programs ready for launch when the final version of macOS is ready.

But it’s not just developers who get an early look though. Back at
WWDC 2015 Apple announced that it was going to let members of the public test the upcoming new version of its Mac operating system as part of a free beta program. That means that anyone can get their hands on the new version of macOS before it is released to the general public later in the year.

If you want to get the beta the first thing you need to do if you haven’t already is join Apple’s beta programs read this for more information:
How to become an Apple beta tester.

As we explained there are two types of Apple beta program. One for developers who need to test their apps and one for members of the public willing to test early versions of Apple’s software.

If you want to be a public beta tester you can sign up to join the Apple Beta Software Program here. There’s more information on signing up below in the article mentioned above.

If you’re after the beta because you are an Apple Developer you need to go to enroll in the program here. We have more information on signing up in the ‘How to become an Apple beta tester’ article linked above.

Public vs Developer preview – what’s the difference?

The public beta is not the same as the beta being released through the developer program developers tend to receive more frequent updates including new features not in the public beta. 

Is it safe to install the macOS beta?

Before we start a word of warning…

By its nature a beta has the potential to be unstable. Therefore it’s not advised that you install it on your Mac if you are relying on it. If you have a second Mac that isn’t mission-critical then install it there. We strongly recommend that you don’t risk all by making it your primary macOS especially not in the early days of the beta development. 

If you don’t have a second Mac there are a couple of ways you could run macOS beta on your Mac without running the risk of losing data or finding your Mac stops working:

We recommend installing it on a partition – which these days is really a volume (and is so much easier to create than a partition was). Read about how to do that here: How to dual-boot Mac: Run two versions of macOS on a Mac.Alternatively you could install the macOS beta on an external drive and run it on that.

We discuss the safety of the macOS beta and the risks you might be taking in more detail in a separate article.

You may prefer to wait until the final version is out in which case read:
How to update your Mac.

How to prepare for the beta

Apple gives clear instructions about how to prepare your Mac for the installation on the Enroll your Mac page.

First Apple advises users to make a backup of their data and files before installing any beta versions of macOS stating. You can find out how to use Time Machine to back up your Mac. We also have a round-up of suitable backup solutions.

You’ll need to have the latest full version of macOS installed and we’d recommend at least 15GB of available space because the macOS betas tend to be very large. In fact last year a lot of people had problems installing macOS Big Sur because it required a lot of space to move things around. If you end up requiring more space read: How to free up space on Mac.

Note that we always recommend that you have at least 10% space free on your Mac at any time so if you don’t have that expect problems!

How to get the macOS Ventura developer beta

Here’s how to download and install a beta version of macOS on your Mac.

If you haven’t yet registered as a developer you need to enroll in the program –
here.

Go to developer.apple.comClick on Account and log in.If you aren’t signed up for the Apple Developer program you can do so here: Click on Join the Apple Developer Program and then click on Enroll (top right).

If you aren’t a developer you can intall the public beta. We recommend that you wait for the public beta, Rafael Ouro but if you want to take your chances and download the macOS beta access utility from a third-party site this is likely to be possible. Doing so is a risky business though.

Read on for more information about getting hold of the macOS Developer Beta Access Utility.

Last year after the Monterey beta launched various websites were offering the profile required to install the developer beta as a free download. For example BetaInstaller.com offered the profiles required to download the macOS beta. You might also be able to get the iOS beta from one of these sites – again we warn against it but there is more information here.

If you need another reminder of why it’s not a good idea to download the betas this way here are a couple of reasons to steer clear:

Apple does not support or control these sites and could decide to take legal action against these sites and their users.We cannot provide any guarantee that the content found on these sites is harmless. Downloading is very much at your own risk.

We recommend that you become an official Public Beta tester. Find out how to become an Apple Beta Tester here.

However if you’re undeterred in your potentially dangerous mission here’s what you need to do to install the macOS beta is you aren’t a developer:

Open the website on your Mac and find the link to download the macOS beta profile (on betainstaller.com you’ll find the link here).Download the profile (you’ll need to confirm on your Mac that you want to allow the download).Open your Downloads folder and click on the macosDeveloperBetaAccessUtility.DMG file.Now click on the macosDeveloperBetaAccessUtility.pkg.A wizard will open indicating that it will guide you through the steps to install the software. Click Continue.Click Continue again and then Agree to the terms of the software license agreement.Now click Install.Enter your password and click on Install Software.When the installation of the profile is complete open System Preferences on your Mac. And click on Software Update. It will start to check for updates and eventually you will see the message that MacOS Beta is there to download.

Please note: Beta software is not yet final and may contain errors that lead to crashes or data loss. In addition apps may stop working because they are not designed for the new macOS. Therefore you should always back up your data before installing any beta software.

How to get the macOS Ventura public beta

Follow these steps to install the public beta of macOS.

If you were already running an earlier macOS Public Beta you’ll find the new macOS beta as an upgrade via Software Update. Just click on Upgrade Now. You may have to update to the latest version of your current beta before you can do so.

That covers how to get the betas but once you have them what can you do and what should you do? We’ll cover that below.

How to send feedback to Apple

Should you come across an error or a bug you should use the Feedback Assistant app to provide feedback to Apple.
