AppsList of Older iPhone Models That Can Upgrade to iOS 16

When releasing iPhone 14, Apple confirms that they will release iOS 16 on September 12 for devices other than iPhone 14.

iOS 16 was first showcased at the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference and was available in public beta last July. With the release on September 12, iOS 16 will be able to be tasted before the iPhone 14 reaches the buyer’s hands.

Because the iPhone 14 Pro can only be ordered from September 9 and is available in stores on September 16, quoted from The Verge, Friday (9/9/2022).

iOS 16 has a prerequisite that seems higher than iOS 15. Because when iOS 15 was released, all iPhones running iOS 14 can update to the operating system.

The situation is different from iOS 16, where not all iOS 15 devices can update to iOS 16. Apple did not explain why the iPhone did not get the update.

One of the most noticeable new features in iOS 16 is the new Lock Screen display. Users can customize the Lock Screen, editing a large number of default design elements for a more personalized interface.

In addition, there are also several utility widgets that Apple says have millions of ways to combine them. It’s worth noting that we can create multiple Lock Screens and switch back and forth according to our needs.

“This is the biggest update ever for the lock screen, reimagining how it works,” said Craig Federighi, Senior Vice President of Software Engineering at Apple.

Users can use the lock screen from the wallpaper collection. In order not to cover the lock screen, Apple moved notifications at the bottom.
