People reflect on the past year at the end of the year. This is especially true for Apple’s iOS software.
Since 2007, with the introduction of IphoneiOS is no exception. Every year, new software updates bring big changes and small improvements like a redesign. iOS 7You can also place widgets on the homescreen iOS 14.
However, iOS 16Users seem to prefer to add widgets to the lockscreen to expand existing features rather than to learn new features.
With this in mind we’ve created seven features that the iPhone platform can offer that can be of great benefit to many users.
The startup screen with the new features
I often hear this: “I didn’t realize my iPhone could do that.” I often see iPhones that have been updated to iOS 16 but still have the old lock screen, or other phones that are still in use, while working in an open office. iOS 13On iPhone 11 Pro.
Apple believes that the design should be invisible and that users should intuitively know that it is available. However, not everyone can use it that way. A friend had no idea you could answer calls on a Mac with, say, an iPhone — a feature that’s been around since 2014.
This is why, once you upgrade to iOS 17, an additional startup page appears. Similar to when an Apple app is launched, a screen shows what’s new. Instead, this display should be made when you go back to the home screen. Explain that the Tips app can help with these features.
Tips is a lesser-known app from Apple, but great for a new user — the company doesn’t talk about it much, and you most likely don’t know you can go into the app, and as the above image shows, take a look at the overview of all the new features.
Let’s hope it becomes more common. Maybe a random tip appears in Dynamic island on the first day that you update to iOS 17 or an email describing what you can accomplish.
Redesigned Control Center
This is a long overdue but difficult to beat. It first appeared in iOS 7You can swipe up from your iPhone’s bottom to access settings. This is a major redesign of the flat methodology. Later, it was moved to the upper-right corner and given a file name iPhone XYou can also use the swipe up gesture for the return to the home screen.
The Control Center has become worse over the past ten years. This is primarily due to the many new features that have been added to the list, which have made it difficult to swipe up and get off the screen.
Let’s look at a redesign that allows us to resize options similar to the widgets on our home screen and gives third-party apps access the Control Center.
Side note: Let’s see the Control Center as part of the multitasking menu, and not as a separate section.
Stream games from iOS to Twitch more easily
Apple made a big push for gaming at WWDC 2022. They announced Resident Evil Village will be coming to the Mac and No Man’s Sky will be coming to the iPad. But, if you’re looking to stream games on your iPhone via Twitch, you’re in luck. I was out of luck.
SharePlay lets users stream what they are doing in certain apps, but this is only possible within FaceTime calls. Instead, let’s look at a feature that allows you to press a button and load your Twitch account. This will stream your Apple Arcade game.
Let’s also make sure that you can view the chat window of those who are watching your broadcast and keep track via notifications on any other Apple device.
We live in an age when many people own multiple Apple products. While iCloud can help you manage files across devices, certain details such as fitness and battery life are only available on specific Apple products.
You can’t, for example, view your Move target on a widget for your iPad.
You won’t be able to check the battery status of all your devices if you don’t have it. To check if your battery is low, you can only load the Find My App. Hardware tabTo check the battery icon for each Apple product, select it and then click on it.
The Battery Widget in iOS can do it if only one app can.
The iOS home screen has barely changed since 2007, so the redesign finally happened. iOS 16 with widgetsIt was wonderful to see him. Let’s hope that this effort continues in iOS 17.
Six live widgets and activitiesSome people don’t like the widget on their lock screen. There are many other options to see more widgets in different sizes and places.
It should be possible to replace the time with a widget. There should also be another row of widgets that are below the three we have.
More tools are always a good thing. Let’s see more of them in different sizes.
Improved picture-in-picture controls
Although the iPad 9 launched the ability to view video anywhere on your device, there have been very few improvements since then. The exception being iOS 14 in 2019.
However, iOS 17 should bring the ability to control video better, such as filtering the timeline or selecting other videos.
You also have a hidden advantage if you use this in macOS. Option contractDrag a video and place it anywhere on your screen. This feature is also available in iOS 17, so you have more control over the size and position of your video.
It was back when I had it iPhone 8 PlusI loved the ability of flipping the phone to landscape mode. My home screen would rotate as well.
The keyboard would have had additional functionality like punctuation keys and shortcuts, such as copying or pasting text. Some keys were also longer, which would have made them more useful. However, future models will not have this feature. iPhone XSIt was launched on 2018
Nearly every iPhone is currently available, starting with iPhone 13Send it to me iPhone 14 Pro MaxThe iPhone 8 Plus has larger screens than the iPhone 8 Plus due to a different all screen design. Let’s see iOS 17 make the most of that and extend it to other applications, such as Apple MusicEven the lock screen comes with useful tools.
Is your wish missing?
We’re at a point with iOS where features outstanding by Apple over the years have paid off — from custom keyboards to redesigned home screen widgets.
These seven features can be used to enhance an iPhone’s user experience. Apple also knows that individuality is important. That is why we can make the lock screens in iOS 16 our own.
