Apple seeds iOS 16 release candidate version to developers
Apple has today seeded a release candidate version of iOS 16 to developers, rolling out what could be our final seed in the initial iOS 16 developer beta testing cycle ahead of the official release of the software, which is set to roll out on Monday, September 12, bringing an all-new Lock Screen design, upgrades to iMessage, including the ability to undo and edit sent messages, improvements to Maps, Messages, Focus and Live Text, a redesigned Home app, Health app updates, and much more.
Changes to the iPhone Lock Screen are arguably iOS 16’s most major update, bringing new personalization options that allow users to change the look of the date and time with type styles and colour choices, add widgets to their Lock Screen to get information at a glance, such as upcoming calendar events, the weather and battery levels, relocated notifications, and more.
The new update for iPhone includes the ability to recall and edit sent iMessages, schedule mail, collaborate via Messages, improved Focus options, Live Text for video, multi-stop routing in Maps, Apple Pay Later for users in the US, a rebuilt Home app, new accessibility tools, and more.
