What is rumored?
In years past, we’ve had early versions of iOS leaked, which gave us a fairly good idea of what to expect. That’s not the case this year, and we just have a few details on what might be included in iOS 16.
The iPhone 14 Pro models won’t have a standard notch, which means we might see some minor design changes, and there are rumors of improvements to the Health app, such as the medication management tool.
Unidentified notification updates are in the works and we can see emergency satellite message features and updates related to vehicle accident detection. iPadOS 16 may get new multitasking features, and we could also see support for services Apple is working on, like the Device Subscription service.
You can read more about what may come in our site iOS 16 Custom Tour.
