Apple is about to release the latest update of iOS. iOS 16.5, even though it is a minor update it is coming with some notable changes. Here is everything that iOS 16.5 will bring.
iOS 16.5 third beta has been released to developers and beta testers. It means that the software update is almost ready. It will be released to all the users in May. Here are some of the confirmed changes it will bring.
If you use the Apple News application, you will notice the lack of tabs right now. But do not worry, Apple will now make a dedicated Sports tab in the application. It will house all the sport-related news. This news currently resides under the Today tab. But it is now featured more prominently as Apple continues to push deeper into sports content across its services.
It will be nice to just click the tab and see the relevant news not having to scroll through multiple “California Man” news and ruin your day lol.
There will be improvements to Siri overall to make the assistant better. One notable addition will be that Siri will now have a new command. Siri will now be able to start and stop screen recording,
Just saying, “Hey Siri, Record my Screen” or “Hey Siri, start screen recording”, will enable you to record the screen. It will be very handy to use rather than going to the control center and clicking from there.
Battery & Performance
The iOS 16.5 update will make battery usage more efficient while making the devices faster. There was a 5/10 percent increase in the battery life. Some testers reported devices were staying cool.
There might be some more changes in the final release. Till then these were the confirmed changes.
