The option to personalize the locked screen is without a doubt the most significant new feature that is included in the most recent release of iOS (Lock Screen). This is something that may be accomplished using layered backgrounds, widgets, custom date and time fonts, and a variety of other options. You also have the option of selecting photographs that will rotate throughout the day on the screen that appears while the phone is locked.

The new Lock Screen gallery provides access to a variety of different lock screen alternatives, including as a brand-new weather wallpaper and an interface that makes it simple to move between your preferred lock screen layouts.

Edit or Unsend for iMessage

The most recent release of Apple’s iOS includes two new features: the capacity to temporarily amend or “unsend” an iMessage, as well as the choice to designate a message as unread after it has been accessed for the first time.

Users have access to the ability to edit an iMessage for up to five times per message, and this option is available to them 15 minutes after the message has been sent.

Employing the full-screen mode of the music player

iOS 16 restores the full-screen music player that was previously available on the lock screen, complete with a large album art image and a background color that matches it.

Assistance with the Nintendo Joy-Con controllers

iPhones and iPads are compatible with a variety of Bluetooth game controllers for use with iOS 16, such as the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons and the Pro Controller. When using iOS 16, gamers have the option of using either the left or right Joy-Con as a single controller, or using both as a single controller.

As of iOS 14.5 and later versions of the platform, the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller and the Xbox Series X gamepad are both compatible with the iPhone.
