Every year, the new iPhone lineup launches with a new version of iOS, and like clockwork, that new software rolls out to older iPhones as well. iOS 16, the latest version of Apple’s operating system, has finally arrived.

Apple has finally released iOS 16 to the public, after a long period of beta testing. Perhaps the biggest improvement in iOS 16 is to the lock screen, which is now much more customizable. It has a certain old Android charm, letting you customize the clock font, change colors, and even put in widgets. Over the years, iOS has been known to be inflexible when it comes to customization, so allowing users to customize their lock screen is a complete 180 on Apple’s previous strategy, and a change which we greatly appreciate.

Additionally, iMessage is getting a handful of improvements. For one thing, you can now edit a message after sending it, allowing you to correct typos or wording in a text 15 minutes after you’ve sent a message. And if you messed something up completely, you can also undo a message within 30 seconds of sending it. In this regard, iMessage is catching up with apps like Telegram, which is great seeing how Apple is unwilling to support RCS.

We’ve got other smaller changes too, but unfortunately, we won’t be getting changes like Live Activities, which let you stay on top of ongoing events, and shared iCloud Photo Library. Most of the changes people are excited about will come in minor updates after iOS 16.

The iOS 16 update will be available for the following devices:

  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13 ProMax
  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 Mini
