Available today, iOS 16.2 unlocks an Advanced Data Protection mode for your iCloud storage. This optional setting extends iCloud’s use of end-to-end encryption, providing greater security for device backups and Safari messages, notes, photos, bookmarks, and more.

This is exactly what you’ll need in the event of a data breach. With end-to-end encryption, your iCloud data can only be decrypted on trusted devices. Please note that Advanced Data Protection requires an account recovery method in case you lose access to your account.

Additionally, iOS 16.2 includes Apple Music Sing, a karaoke tool that integrates directly into Apple’s music player. Assuming you have a compatible device, you can sing along to your favorite songs (or perform a duet with a friend) while adjusting the song’s original vocal level.

The update also improves the architecture of HomeKit, which is likely to speed up the implementation of Matter. As you may know, the Matter standard promises to make all smart home devices compatible, regardless of their brand. (Unfortunately, the release of Matter is very slow and difficult.)

To manually install the iOS 16.2 update, open your iPhone’s Settings and go to “General.” You will see an option titled “Software Update.” Tap it to see if the update is available for your device; the implementation may take a few days, mind you.
