Along with Apple announcing the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple also once again made mention of iOS 16. Originally announced during WWDC2022, iOS 16 offers a wealth of new features, including the newly redesigned customizable Lock Screen.

During today’s event, Apple did announce that iOS 16 will see a release to the general public Monday, Sept. 12. On this day, users will be able to go under the Settings app in their phone and download the update.

As a refresher, new features in the iOS 16 update include an updated Lock Screen, new features in Messaging and more.

For those that have been using the public or developer betas, no doubt they’ve had fun toying around with this new feature.

Additionally, new features also include the ability to edit an iMessage 15 minutes after sending, as well as the ability to unsend a message entirely two minutes after sending. Recipients of edited or sent messages will be able to see a record of these changes. The option to unsend a message also arrives for mail.

Additionally, an all-new Home app is also arriving, featuring a new design that makes navigation and organization even easier. Apple is also replacing Passwords with Passkeys, which is an easier sign-on method for users. Of course, other new features and tweaks will be arriving as well.

It is worth noting that both the release candidate for iOS 16 and Apple watchOS 9 are currently available. Those registered as developers with Apple are able to download the release candidates from the Apple Developer Center.

With the iPhone 14 series starting to arrive around Sept. 16, it will be great seeing the new models of iPhone displaying iOS 16 in all of its glory.
