Big update for the iPhone is here: everything changes with iOS 16.2

Apple has finished the next version of iPhone iOS 16.2. iPhone users are now offered the latest version of iOS as a software update.

The update adds more features that didn’t make it to the final version, but were sold by Apple as a “great new feature in iOS 16.” For example, iPhone users running iOS 16.2 can update to a new Whiteboard app called Freeform be happy.

The app promises to bring your ideas to life. Alone or in a team, you can sketch out projects, design an idea board, or start a brainstorming session on a flexible canvas that supports almost any file type. And with iCloud, all your boards stay in sync, whether you’re working on your Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

Apple Music Sing: the karaoke function comes to the iPhone

Based on the live text function, a karaoke function will be integrated into the music streaming service Apple Music. The new feature allows users to sing their favorite songs with synchronized lyrics and customizable voices.

Apple Music Sing offers different views for the lyrics. So fans can take over on front or background vocals or alternatively sing a duet.

The prerequisite for “Apple Music Sing” is an existing Apple Music subscription.

iOS 16.2: more innovations, but also a limitation

In addition, new lock screen widgets for sleep mode and taking pills on time will be offered. In addition, some bugs are fixed, for example in the camera application, and a new one Added “Easy” mode in Accessibility.

But also an unusual limitation with iOS 16.2: Apple initially limited the free reception of AirDrop data transmissions on the iPhone in China. German users are now also affected by the restriction. What exactly will change: Instead of the “Everyone” AirDrop option, there is only the option in the iOS 16.2 settings that the reception is open for a maximum of 10 minutes.
