The next iPhones will not be available to the public until September 16, or even a little later for the iPhone 14 Plus, but one of their specificities will make its debut today: the new version of the system that operates from Apple. iOS 16, presented at WWDC last June and available since then in beta form, will arrive on September 12 in the final version on iPhones. The models in the 14 series – iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max – of course, but also smartphones from previous generations.

Than of course for the iPhone 7

Terminals from the iPhone 8 series, including an iPhone 8 Plus from 2017, the X series and iPhone 11, 12 and 13 are eligible for the update. On the iPhone SE side, iOS 16 can only be installed on the second generation of the device that was launched in 2020. The first one that was marketed in 2016 is now too old. Incidentally, it should be noted that this was to be the last upgrade of the iPhone 8, and that the iPhone 7 ends its days under iOS 15.

As for downloading the upgrade, it does not require any special skills: just check for the appearance of the notification ad hoc on your screen or go to Settings > General > Software Update. Prefer a wifi connection for download.

The new features brought by iOS 16 are already known and detailed in this article. Apple relies heavily on personalization, especially lock screens that use auto-cropped photos, fonts, and widgets to choose from. We also see an optimized display of notifications on the same lock screen: they stack up, like cards, instead of taking up the entire display space when there are many of them.

Other elements to remember: a “Concentration” mode that adjusts the sources of distraction at different times of the day, the possibility to correct a message already sent via iMessage or even cancel the sending within 10 seconds in case of mishandling. The function also applies to e-mails. Finally, there are improvements such as the ability to combine voice and keyboard input simultaneously, copying text shown in a video or even optimizations related to the form application and sharing photographs.

WatchOS 9 should accompany iOS 16

See OS 9

Note that iOS 16 is not coming alone today. WatchOS 9, dedicated to Apple connected watches, will also be available for download later in the day. Largely oriented towards precise monitoring of running, but also towards managing certain health parameters (e.g. taking medicine) and towards personalizing the watch’s home screen.update is not exclusive to Watch Series 8 and Ultra. WatchOS 9, to be used with an iPhone running iOS 16, targets the Watch Series 4, 5, 6 and 7, but also the Watch SE.

iPadOS, the last system whose update is expected, will have to wait until October. Apple has confirmed that it prefers to launch iPadOS 16 in October rather than September, to better allow time to settle the final details.
