Smarter Messages

With iOS 16, iPhone users will get the ability to edit a sent message and undo a sent message. The time limit for both these features is restricted to 15 minutes.



This feature offers a new on-device experience that allows users to move between voice and touch. Users can type with the keyboard, tap in the text field, move the cursor, and insert QuickType suggestions, all without needing to stop Dictation. This feature also includes automatic punctuation and emoji dictation.



Apple has released a feature called Medications in its Health app that allows users to conveniently build and manage a medications list, create schedules and reminders, and track their medications, vitamins, or supplements.


Photo shuffle

iOS 16 users can customise their iPhone lockscreens using the Photo Shuffle option that automatically updates photos on your Lock Screen. Users can also set the cadence for how often their lock screen updates with a new photo.



iPhone users can also see their iPhone lock screens change based on their live conditions as the weather changes throughout the day.


Medication interaction

Apple is also making it easier for users to ensure that certain medications don’t interact with each other to cause side effects. Apple says when you add a new medication you wil receive an alert if there is a critical interaction. You can review critical, serious, and moderate interactions in the Health app.
