I use it to read the latest news, check the weather, and pull out the calculator or flashlight on occasion. Wallpapers that look like widgets and other major improvements are expected in iOS 16.

An always-on lock screen could be included in the next major version of iOS. According to reports from last year, the iPhone 13 Pro will come with an always-on display that would dynamically lower its refresh rate to as low as 10Hz when not in use to save battery life.

Although the feature was never implemented, it may be included in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. According to the previous speculation, the 14 Pro was expected to have a 48-megapixel camera, periscope lens, autofocus front-facing camera, and a new A16 chipset.

The Messaging app, according to Gurman, is planned to receive social media-like enhancements, particularly for audio messages. The Apple TV’s operating system, tvOS, will become more integrated with smart home devices, while macOS may see software redesigns.
