At best deals,no tail tied
The launch event of iPhone 14 approaches, and the device’s operating system is ready: engineers at apple finished work on the first version of the iOS 16. macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16 will take a little longer.
The information is from Mark Gurman, a journalist at Bloomberg that charges Apple. According to Gurman, development was finished last week, and the system is ready for a public release.
So far, Apple has released six beta versions of the system, two of which are exclusive to developers and four open to the general public.
The company is expected to announce the iPhone 14 in the first few weeks of September. So far, the strongest rumors point to the 7th as the most likely. The company should also release watchOS 9 and tvOS 16.
iOS 16 brings new features to the lock screen, such as customization and widgets, finer adjustments to focus modes, and iCloud photo sharing and privacy features.
iOS 16 development continues
Finishing iOS 16 doesn’t mean the end of the job, obviously. Now, Apple’s engineering team must turn to iOS 16.1.
Some features promised for the operating system, by the way, should only arrive in future versions. This is the case with Live Activities, notifications on the lock screen that display updated information. The feature was promised but hasn’t appeared in iOS 16 yet.
Macs and iPads will not be updated until later
Meanwhile, Apple’s tablet and computer operating systems are not expected to arrive until October. The company is expected to hold another event dedicated to launches in these product lines.
Despite being heavily based on iOS, iPadOS has taken on a life of its own and brings extra features that make the tablet look more like a computer.
One of them, by the way, may have been the cause of the system arriving a month later: the Stage Manager.
The feature improves tablet multitasking with freer adjustments to app windows. However, he had problems in his development. It will also be limited to devices with an M1 chip or higher.
