IOS 16.5, Two New Features That will Change Everything

Earlier this week, Apple made the third beta of the iOS 16.5 available to developers and testers. The new software definitely comes with a couple of bug fixes and optimizations. However we have discovered two main additions so far.

The Apple News app comes with a new tab that is dedicated for sports. Also, you can now start a new screen recording with Siri. Now, let’s discuss these new features below.

Apple will likely release the final version to the general public in May. The company may add more features before the final launch or in future iOS updates. You can either join the Apple Developer Program Medmbership which will cost you $99 every year. Or, you can also join the free Apple Beta Software Program in order to test the software before final release.

From this tab, you can also check the scores and games schedule for your favorite teams. Before this change, you could find such content under the ‘today tab’. Apple has decided to make it easily accessible by keeping all sports content under one main tab. Apple is currently pushing for more sports content across all of its devices.

Wrap Up

Apple is adding just a few features to the iOS 16.5. This is mainly because the iOS 17 launch is just around the corner, launching at the WWDC in June. So, it makes sense for the company to reserve all the big features for the big launch event
