iOS 16 Release Date News & Update


Waiting for iOS 16? Well, in that case, you are not alone. New updates always bring the latest features that make the phone using experience smoother and seamless. Therefore, Apple users are eagerly waiting for the launch of iOS but the company hasn’t made any official announcement yet. For the time being, we won’t have a firm release date for iOS 16, but based on previous experience, we can make an educated guess.

To cut down your research and to feed your curiosity, we dug deep and make intelligent guesses based on previous year’s releases. So, hold your horses and get ready to unwrap iOS16 a bit more. Without further ado, let’s get started!!

iOS 16 Release Date

Because the next iOS usually releases as the next iPhone, we might see iOS 16 in September. Apple, for example, launched iOS 15 a week after the iPhone 13 event on September 20 last year. If Apple has its iPhone 14 event in September, like it typically does, iOS 16 would most certainly be released soon after.

Apple usually unwraps the latest version of iOS at its annual WWDC event, followed by a public beta. Hence, it’s safe to assume Apple’s WWDC conference in June when the company showed off iOS 15’s new features last year.

A Brief Introduction to the iOS 16 Compatible Devices?

Even though Apple releases a new iOS every year, the software packages are backward compatible with most older devices, with iOS 15 running flawlessly on an iPhone 6s from 2015.

However, according to the French website iPhoneSoft, an Apple worker disclosed that iOS 16 functions with iPhones with an A10 chip or above. That includes the iPhone 7 and later, but not the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, or SE 2016.

iPadOS 16 “will surely not” be functional with:

  • iPad Mini 4
  • iPad 5
  • iPad Air 2, or iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9-inch models

What to expect from iOS 16?

Since Apple hasn’t made any official announcement yet, we can just make the guesses and are believing rumors to facilitate the readers. Keep scrolling to know what might be expected from the upcoming iOS.

  • AR/ VR Headset

Though we don’t know much about what to anticipate from iOS 16, there are reports that Apple is building on an AR/VR headset that will get released in 2022. And if that’s the fact, new virtual reality interfaces and capabilities could get included in the new operating software upgrades.

Apple may unveil the AR/VR headset during its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, giving developers more time to develop applications and features for the gadget. It’s unclear whether this will occur.

  • Emergency Satellite Features

Apple gets rumored to be working on a satellite-based crisis function for iPhone 14 devices, which would get enabled in iOS 16. If this function is made accessible, iPhones will send messages in emergency cases when cellular coverage is unavailable and notify crises when service is unavailable.

  • Detect a car collision

According to rumors, the iPhone 14 versions will receive a new vehicle crash recognition technology that will allow the iPhones to recognize when an accident has happened and immediately phone emergency personnel. If Apple decides to go through with the capability, it will have software updates included in iOS 16.

  • Music Improvement

Last but not least, with iOS 16 this year, there’s another program that needs to be polished: the Music application. The Music app is one of the most popular on iOS, but it has several flaws and issues, which date back before Apple Music was ever released.

Also, in iOS 16, might we get gapless playing functionality for the Music app? Another feature available in Apple Music for Android but not iOS is this.

With iOS 16, we are not expecting Apple to overhaul the Music app. That would, in reality, be paradoxical. What we would like to see Apple do is improve the Music app’s efficiency and dependability, as well as Apple Music as a platform. Despite its flaws, Spotify boasts a solid backbone that allows its applications to launch much quicker than Apple Music.

Steps to Download iOS beta

Because a new computer system takes up a lot of room in a phone, you’ll want to clear out memory hogs like old photos, videos, and apps first. Then, just in case the upgrade fails, make a backup of your phone.

So you don’t lose anything important. The iOS 14 release criteria include a step-by-step tutorial if you’re unsure how to do it. You’ll need to join the Apple Beta Software Program to try out the public beta when it becomes available.


That’s all about it!! Remember that these are just suppositions because there haven’t been any hints concerning Apple’s priority this year. You can stay connected with us for more such updates. We’ll keep you posted about its new iOS release date and its important features.
