Apple has just released iOS 16.4 t the public, and already the attention has started shifting to iOS 16.5. It’s just been a day or two since iOS 16.4 was released and now Apple has begun to seed iOS 16.5 developer’s beta 1 to the developers. Obviously, users are curious about iOS 16.5 developer’s beta release, and what features has it brought. IOS 16.5 is been considered the next major update and probably the last update. iOS 16.5 is expected to bring some exciting new features and improvements. Let us look at iOS 16.5 features and what we need to know about it.

iOS 16.5 Features

Siri Can Now Start and Stop Screen Recording

One notable change in iOS 16.5 Beta 1 is that Siri can now start and stop screen recording. This new feature allows users to activate the screen recording function on their iPhone by simply saying, “Hey Siri, start a screen recording.” This can be useful for capturing gameplay, tutorials, or any other content on your iPhone screen. To stop the screen recording, you can either tap the red status bar or say, “Hey Siri, stop a screen recording.” The recorded video will be saved to your Photos app.

Apple News Now Has a New Sports Section

Apple has been making strides in the sporting world recently, including the return of MLB in April. With iOS 16.5, My Sports in the News app will get even better with the much-requested move of the Sports Tab to the bottom of the application. The Sports Tab now sits right in the middle of the News app giving sports fans a quick way to access their sports news and results without having to scroll through the Today feed. You can also follow specific leagues and teams that you like, and get live scores and highlights.

Support for Sports Multi-View in Apple TV App

Another feature that will make sports fans very happy is the support for sports multi-view in the Apple TV app. This feature will allow viewers to watch multiple sports streams at once on their iPhone or iPad. You can choose up to four streams simultaneously and switch between them easily. This means you don’t have to miss any action from your favorite sports, whether it’s MLS, Friday Night Baseball, or anything else.

Longer Beats Studio Buds+ Animation

iOS 16.5 also brings a longer animation for Beats Studio Buds+, Apple’s rumored wireless earbuds that are expected to launch soon. The animation shows how to pair and use the earbuds with your iPhone, and it lasts for about 15 seconds. This suggests that Apple is preparing to release these earbuds in the near future, possibly alongside iOS 16.5.

More Bug Fixes and Features

iOS 16.5 is still in beta testing, so more bug fixes and features may be revealed as more information and betas release in the build-up to the official release of iOS 16.5 later this year. We will keep you updated on any new developments as they happen.

iOS 16.5 is a milestone upgrade that will likely bring more than just bug fixes and security patches to iPhone users. It should deliver new features as well. If you want to try out iOS 16.5 before its official release, you can join Apple’s Beta Software Program and download the public beta when it becomes available. Developer’s beta is already available for iOS 16.5 if you want to register for it.

Until next time, with another topic. Till then, Toodles.
