Apple is planning to debut an enhanced Lock Screen with iOS 16, improved multitasking in iPadOS 16, refined navigation in watchOS 9, additional smart home features in tvOS 16, redesigned apps in macOS 13, and more, according Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman.
In the latest edition of his “Power On” newsletter, Gurman outlined his expectations for all of Apple’s upcoming operating systems, including iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, tvOS 16, and macOS 13. He believes that the updates will be “fairly significant.”
Apple is reportedly planning to introduce a number of changes to the Lock Screen with iOS 16, including a new kind of wallpaper that displays information:
With regards to iPadOS 16, Gurman expects “major changes to windowing and multitasking,” while tvOS 16 will purportedly gain “more smart-home tie-ins.”
Gurman expects the Messages app to gain “more social network-like functionality, particularly around audio messages.” The Health app is not expected to expand to iPadOS or macOS, although “plenty of new features” are said to be on the way that work with the iPhone and the Apple Watch.
