Also included are Live Captions and a redesigned lock screen. Keep reading to learn more. Also, keep an eye out for the Family Sharing feature.
Live Captions are a new feature that has recently been released in iOS 16. It is a way to use a computer’s subtitles to read a story or movie, allowing users to follow along with the audio. Live captions work with any application on the iPhone, and they can separate audio from words. While live captioning was originally designed for people with hearing impairments, it is also useful for many reasons. When you can’t listen to the audio through headphones, you can turn on the subtitles, which is easier than turning up the volume on the video or movie.
Live Captions for iOS 16 are compatible with the iPhone 8, iPhone 11, and iPad mini 5. These devices must be running the A12 Bionic chip or higher in order to be compatible with the new feature. Then, you will need to enable Live Captions in the settings app. The settings dialog box will appear after you enable Live Captions. After you enable Live Captions, you will need to tap on “Idle Opacity” to reduce the visibility of the button when you aren’t using it.
Apple is preparing its upcoming iOS 16 update with a number of new features. One of these is the always-on display. This feature is already available on Android and has been around for quite a while, but the feature will be coming to iOS as well. The new Lock Screen widget designs are perfect for the Always-on display, but what about new features? Here’s what you need to know. The new Always-on display feature will be available on the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The new iPhone will feature an Always-on display, which will allow users to view information without having to wake up their device. While the screen remains on, the information and wallpaper will be visible without the need to wake the device. According to Mark Gurman, author of Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter, the feature will be tied to the iOS 16 Lock Screen. However, it will only be available on the higher-end iPhone 14 models.
Redesigned Lock Screen
The Redesigned lock screen for iOS 16 provides a variety of options for the device’s homescreen. Users can customize the lock screen with widgets, photos, and other content. The new lock screen editor also allows users to switch between different themes and types. Users can choose a background color, font, and filter to match their preference. You can also choose a clock widget. A number of built-in widgets are also available, as well as custom-built ones.
With iOS 16, Apple has tweaked the lock screen to allow your photo to take center stage. The clock can now partially float behind an animal or human subject, allowing you to view the subject without having to scroll down the screen. However, the clock’s appearance on the face of a cute kid photo spoils the look. Other changes to the lock screen include the relocation of notifications and third-party widgets.
Family Sharing Feature
The Family Sharing feature was first introduced in iOS 8, and has since evolved to provide even more features for families. With iOS 16, Apple has included the ability to add age-appropriate media restrictions and send Screen Time requests directly from within Messages. You can also respond directly to a request from the kid. The next step in family sharing is the iCloud Photo Library. With this feature, you can share your photos, videos, and other content with up to six family members.
The new feature lets you share purchases and subscriptions with up to five family members, allowing you to manage up to five devices and five people with the same Apple ID. With the Family Checklist, you can keep track of what needs to be updated on your kids’ accounts, and you can choose to share content with each other as well. It’s also possible to set age-appropriate restrictions for your kids, which makes it easy to manage their time.
