Each time Apple presents the new operating system, it tells us which devices will support the new functions. More recently, this information has been added to this information about the timing of the release of specific innovations. This tradition began with the iPhone 7 Plus. Together with it, a portrait mode was announced, which emerged just after the release of the iPhone itself. Since then, the display of some functions at the presentation does not guarantee that they will appear on the device with the release.
Fortunately, the casteization of the desk will be available on the day of release.
So it happened this year at the iOS 16 launch, the operating system will be released in the fall, but some of the things we've shown at WDC 2022 will see the light a little bit later. They've selected four of the most interesting iOS 16 functions that will reach users some time after the release of the operation itself.
Authorisation without password
Passkey entry is no different from normal auto filling.
In a separate material, we've considered what Apple Passkey is and how it works. In two words, let's recall. Apple Passkey allows us to be authorized on different websites and applications without using a password. They'll be replaced by biometrics using Face ID or Touch ID depending on the device. This will allow Apple technology owners not to use the same passwords on different sites, but rather to avoid a really safe way of authorizing.
Most web resources need to support it at their own level, and only then will the users of the iPhones, iPads, and Makov be able to take advantage of it.
I'm guessing that the process of such an introduction will not be fast at all, and in some ways it will be similar to the long-established Sign in with Apple function, which never received the desired spread, and most likely a more or less mass transition to unfaltered authorization will take place within a year and a half and two years.
CarPlay in iOS 16
The image of the information presented on the vehicle's screens will also be able to be adapted to itself.
We've recently been looking at what's new on CarPlay's iOS 16. It's not the material we're interested in, it's the CarPlay itself, which will update with the operating system, it's the expanded version.
In the expanded version of CarPlay, it is CarPlay that controls all the screens in the car compartment. It is CarPlay that will now display data such as:
- Speed, speed, fuel level, temperature, climate control.
The main requirement for car manufacturers who want to use the new CarPlay interface in their cars is that they have to give up their own systems in the car. Far from all companies are willing to make such concessions. The first CarPlay cars will be announced in late 2023 and sold in 2024.
Notifications in Safari
For applications removed from App Store, it is Push notification in Safari that will return iOS users.
What's been in Chrome for a long time now on all the platforms, Apple is implementing only now, and it's very late. Notifications from the sites via Safari will allow banks whose apps are removed from the App Store to create web applications that are close to normal functionality.
It's not just about the software that's been removed from the App Store, but it's probably one of the services that's gonna want to give up a separate program, save money to support a separate application, and focus on running a web version.
In fact, there's a lot of potential for browser notifications, and in particular, small memory devices can now use only web versions of the resources they need without losing functionality.
Unfortunately, this function is scheduled for 2023, and it is not known how many interim versions of the operating system will be available by the time of the final release.
Live Activities in iOS 16
Getting a taxi is one of a lot of Live Activities applications.
One of the main features of your iOS 16 presentation was the possibility of casting your iPhone locking screen. In addition to changing the fonts, the color and the choice of the various wallpapers, it was possible to put on the loxcrin and widgets that were cluttered into iOS from the Watchos. That Apple did not copy them from Android, we told them in separate material, but the most underestimated function was the Live Activities.
Thanks to the open API Live Activities, outside developers will be able to create special banners for their applications on the lock screen that will display any information online. For example, you ordered a taxi, blocked your smartphone, and without going into the loxcrin app, you can watch the car move to your address. Cool?
Live Activities is scheduled for the end of this year. It appears that Apple is planning to pull as many developers and applications as possible to produce a new function at the time of launch.
All these innovations are going to come to the user court sooner or later, and hopefully Apple is trying to make each of them better. Somewhere we have to negotiate with software developers, somewhere with car manufacturers, and in some case we're going to perfect the functionality. In any case, each one of them is going to get popular, and we're going to believe that everything works perfectly.
