June 6, Apple Park, keynote: the program of the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2022 is ready. Like every year, a new version of iOS should be unveiled there; the sixteenth. Many therefore wonder about the additional features that will be announced for the occasion, while last year’s batch was quite substantial.
But this summer, Apple might not be so generous. Mark Gurman, a source who needs no further introduction, believes that if the notification system and the monitoring of health will be improved, the design should remain similar to the current graphics. As a reminder, the last – and only – major facelift of the interface dates back to iOS 7, released in September… 2013. Almost ten years ago. But do we really need it?
As already assumed for several weeks, Gurman recalls that iOS 16 would for the moment bear the code name sydney internally. The rest ? Only assumptions. For the form, we can imagine that the dedicated native app is similar to Google Fit with more options to take care of your body and mind.
As to notifications, they are already much more efficient since the Concentration mode and its various customizable settings have been deployed. But here too, it is possible that the developer is still inspired by Android. We hope, for example, to be entitled to floating bubbles to receive messages overlaid on other applications, but this is only our suggestion.
Autonomy and security
Most often, when Apple updates iOS, it is also to better protect its users. In addition to patches for the stability of the operating system, Tim Cook’s teams are thinking of deploying patches that fill potentially risky flaws in the code. For this reason, they strongly recommend upgrading to the latest version of the program as soon as it is released.
Finally, let’s also bet on the battery, who despite some routs also wins stamina points most often. It’s time to say thank you to the proprietary chips designed by the same brand as the software since the iPhone 4!
