Apple has just released a new beta update for developers. Among the novelties better customization of the Always on Display on iPhone 14
Apple has delivered new beta versions of its operating systems to developers. The release covers iOS 16.2, iPadOS 16.2, watchOS 9.2, macOS Ventura 13.1 and tvOS 16.2.
Although the latest updates (always in the beta phase) were released only a week ago, the company has decided to make further improvements, correcting some “small” bugs promptly reported by users.
Among the most anticipated news, the main one concerns the new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which receive a necessary correction for the Always on Display.
Apple, The iOS 16.2 Update And The Always On Display Improvements
This new update is the first since the launch of the unique feature that allows devices to always keep the screen on. It is, therefore, not surprising that it is one of the most awaited by developers and obviously by the owners of the top of the Apple range.
From what is shown by some screenshots shared on the net, two further options have been added to the Always on the Display settings panel, which concerns the display of the background and notifications.
Users, therefore, will be able to deactivate the wallpaper when the always-on screen mode is active and also to deactivate notifications, keeping only the screen with the date and time and any installed widgets in evidence.
In the currently available version of iOS, the user can only choose to keep the Always on Display mode on, showing everything that happens on the screen or off.
It is, therefore, clear that the new release will be a real revolution for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max and for all users who, since the release date of the devices, have asked for greater autonomy regarding displays.
There has yet to be a release date for this update. Rumors speak of an official release in mid-December, but further details have yet to be provided.
Other Features Of iOS 16.2
Another of the most popular news of the iOS 16.2 beta concerns Apple Music. The platform will soon receive a new look that will change the play buttons and shuffle buttons.
The developers have also worked hard to fix some problems with lag and slowdowns in the application closing animations. According to what is circulating on the net, this malfunction would exclusively concern the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
The many complaints, therefore, had the desired effect, leading Apple to promptly resolve a “defect” that was far too annoying for a top-of-the-range smartphone.
Finally, it remains to be seen whether the company has corrected the impressive energy consumption recorded by iPhones with iOS 16.1. The latest update would have significantly shortened the battery life compared to the previous version, increasing the discontent of the community
With the new beta, however, Apple should have managed to resolve all these drawbacks, but to be sure, we’ll have to wait for the official release.
