New Update For iPhone And iPad Users As Apple Releases iOS 16.4
Apple, an American multinational technology company, has released iOS 16.4.
The new version of the operating system has a variety of changes. The changes include new emojis and improvements such as better voice isolation while on phone calls.
Now, iPhone users can receive notifications for web apps when they are added to the Home Screen.
Based on the update, for example, a weather app can be added to the phone and receive rain alerts, even if it is not properly installed—implying that Apple is moreover looking to support ways of using apps beyond the App Store, an issue that has proven a major problem with regulators.
This comes after Apple’s stand of only allowing apps to be installed through its own store, alluding to the fact that it ensures they are vetted and that iPhones and iPads are safe.
However, regulators and some developers argued that it was unfair to do that, and allows Apple to unfairly control its platform.
21 new emojis, including new animals, foods and hand gestures have been added by Apple.
The new update adds tweaks to the Photos app, new accessibility settings, and fixes for bugs. It also brings new “optimisations” for Crash Detection – a new iPhone 14 feature that is intended to detect car accidents but has been triggered by other activities such as rollercoasters and skiing.
You can install iOS 16.4 by opening up the Settings app, clicking on general and choosing “Software Update”. iPhones and iPads may perhaps also prompt their owners to install the new update.
This update follows the release of the long-anticipated Apple Music Classical app, which must be installed separately, nonetheless, and does not require iOS 16.4.
