Apple’s upcoming operating system, iOS 16, is expected to be a fairly significant update. Some changes that are expected in this new version include dictation improvements, a revamped Notification center, and a new feature called Live Text. We’ve outlined the key features of iOS 16 below. Then, check back for more details. Regardless of which version of iOS you decide to upgrade to, we hope you enjoy these changes!
Apple’s next keyboard operating system
iOS 16 is the next major upgrade to Apple’s mobile operating system. The new version will include numerous improvements, including a completely redesigned Home app. Other changes include keyboard improved privacy features and new lock screen themes. Apple confirmed that the public beta version of iOS 16 will begin to roll out in July. The final version of iOS 16 will be available in the fall, when Apple plans to release new iPhone models.
The keyboard release date of iOS 16 is still unknown, but the new operating system is expected to be available on iPhones from the iPhone 6S and up. However, many rumors are circulating that Apple will drop the iPhone 6S Plus as well as the iPhone SE (2016), so the update is not available to these devices. According to iDrop News, iPhones with an A9 keyboard chip are unlikely to receive iOS 16.
Changes to keyboard dictation
In iOS 16, Apple has made changes to dictation to make it easier for users to switch between typing and dictation. Dictation will now keep the keyboard open while you dictate and you can even type while speaking. With iOS 16, you can also switch between voice and text without having to touch your device. You can even choose to use emoji instead of text. It all starts with iOS 16. 업테크 키보드
Apple is also adding an on-device keyboard Dictation function to the new version. It will allow you to dictate text while keeping the keyboard open, with the option to select and speak text. It can even correct spelling and punctuation automatically as you speak. You can also now dictate emojis and multiple-sentence texts. Dictation in iOS 16 will work with iPhones with the A12 Bionic chip.
Notification center overhaul
If you’re wondering what Apple is up to in the iOS 16 update, consider its overhaul of the notification center. A new search screen sits on the left side of your screen and provides shortcuts to your contacts, apps, and news feed. You can also pin a widget to the bottom of the notifications. You can expand it to display more information. In addition, you can set up widgets to appear in the lock screen’s full screen.
Notifications on iPhones now appear in keyboard bolder text. Additionally, users can view them in different ways, allowing them to see more information in one glance. There’s also a new lock screen notification widget that cuts behind the lock screen photo, giving it a cool keyboard depth effect. What’s more, you can customize the clock widget, including color and typeface. Press and hold the lock screen to change the design.
Live Text feature
Apple has added a new Live Text feature to iOS 16. Designed for use with iOS 16 and later, the new keyboard feature lets you quickly look up, translate, and copy text. For example, you can easily copy an email address or phone number from a photo. In addition, you can also search for the same keyboard text in a new language. When you are using the feature, you can even capture a storefront’s phone number and use the same text to send a text to someone you know.
While Live Text isn’t available on all devices, it is available on the latest iPhone models. You’ll need a device with the A12 Bionic chip and processing power to use the feature. However, the compatibility list goes back as far as six years. To use Live Text, simply point your camera at the text you’d like to copy. When you’ve selected the text, a yellow viewfinder rectangle will appear in the bottom keyboard right corner of the screen.
New ARKit framework for developers
Apple has released the new ARKit keyboard framework for iOS developers. This framework is designed to simplify the creation of AR apps and games. The framework is optimized for the A9 chip and supports SpriteKit, SceneKit, and Metal as renderers. Developers can also make use of the framework with existing game engines such as Unity and Unreal. Here’s a look at what ARKit is and how it can benefit your game development.
Apple has long hinted at a mixed-reality headset. Though the company isn’t expected to reveal its device until WWDC in 2022, it’s not a surprise to hear that the company is looking to improve their existing AR framework. Developers can also expect accessibility keyboard features and support for more than 20 languages. While it’s still early to expect the first mixed-reality headset, developers will likely be excited to learn about iOS 16 and its new ARKit framework.
