At the WWDC conference in June every year, Apple will launch the latest iOS system, so what will be the changes in iOS 16 this year? Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman broke the news that iOS 16 will greatly improve notification reminders and add new health-tracking features. However, the interface will not be redesigned and there will be no significant change in this regard.
Of course, there will be some new features in all aspects of iOS 16, but the biggest changes are notification reminders and new health-tracking features. The interface design of iOS systems has been pretty much the same since iOS 7. This means that iOS interface design has been the same for almost 10 years.
Apple may introduce a new multitasking management interface for iPadOS. The Apple Watch is getting a major update to activity and health tracking. Apple has announced that it will hold a WWDC conference on June 6 this year. At the event, it will announce a new generation of operating systems such as iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13, watchOS 9 and tvOS 16.
The source also reveals that Apple will announce two new Macs at WWDC, one of which is the new MacBook Air. The new MacBook Air will feature a colorful design, the same color as the M1 iMac, new ports, support for MagSafe charging, and a better FaceTime front-facing camera. As for the other brand-new Mac, it’s not certain.
Models that will support iOS 16
According to unconfirmed reports, iOS 16 plans to drop support for the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and the original iPhone SE. This means that iPhone SE 2, iPhone 7, and above iPhone will get an iOS 16 upgrade.
Apple will announce iOS 16 at WWDC 2022 when it will announce the specific upgrade support list. In terms of accuracy, iPhonesoft’s reports have different ratings. In the past, it has had some correct as well as wrong reports. For instance, it correctly reported the list of supported devices for iOS 13 and iOS 14 in advance. However, its reports on iPhone 6s and original iPhone SE not upgrading to iOS 15 were wrong.
If the report is correct, this means that iOS 16 will require the A10 chip as the minimum hardware spec to get the latest features. Still, this represents an incredibly long life for iPhones in terms of upgrades and maintenance. The iPhone 6s and original iPhone SE were first released in late 2015 and early 2016, respectively. This means they will receive regular software updates for over 6 years.
