Apple recently held its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) where it previewed major changes to its software for smartphones, tablets and computers. For Apple, developer conferences like WWDC are an opportunity for Cupertino to show how its software will change later this year when officially rolled out to consumers worldwide. iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura and WatchOS 9 brought significant changes, including high-end iPads to better multitask and enable iPhones to be transformed into web cameras with their Macs. Of all the new software features coming to Apple’s most popular products, here are the five most important touches that will transform your iPhone, iPad, Mac and the Apple Watch in a better way. www.mcdvoice.com One of the significant yet less-talked-about new features of iOS 16 is the ability to edit and send iMessage you’ve recently sent out. That’s right. If you use Apple’s Messages app a lot, then you will be able to edit a message after it’s sent or unsend a message. Basically, users will have up to 15 minutes to unsend or edit a message. What is not clear is whether it only works with users of the Messages app or would it also work if you sent out a message to someone who owns an Android device. As per Apple, you will be able to recover deleted messages for up to 30 days on iOS 16. www.krogerstoresfeedback.com Your lock screen – the screen you open innumerable times a day to check notifications and time – is getting a personality of its own. Android smartphones have had customisable lock screen for years. But for iPhone users, customisable lock screens are a new concept. Finally, users will be able to apply different styles and fonts and other information at a glance. Think about mini-widgets that will show weather, activity, alarms, and more. Just like on the Apple Watch, you need to long-press the screen to navigate different lock screen options and find the best settings for you. Plus, users can create custom lock screens based on when they’re at work or home. www.dgcustomerfirst.com Forget about the Camo app to use your iPhone’s high-resolution camera as your Mac webcam. With iOS 16 and macOS Ventura, Apple has made it easy to turn your iPhone into Mac’s webcam. It’s called a Continuity Camera. Perhaps the best part? Your Mac will automatically recognize when your iPhone is nearby. You don’t need to wake it up or even unlock it. It just connects to your Mac automatically. Continuity Camera works with FaceTime, Zoom, Teams, Webex, and other popular video conferencing apps. Another feature called Desk View shows a birds-eye view of your desk by just using the iPhone’s ultra-wide-angle camera and image processing. It’s a brilliant way to make unboxing videos. Continuity Camera will be rolled out as a feature when macOS Ventura and iOS 16 will be rolled out this fall. It will be available to any Mac capable of running macOS Ventura.
