iOS 16 is likely to be unveiled on June 6 at Apple’s annual WWDC developer conference. Major improvements to the iPhone lock screen will be included in the next edition of Apple’s mobile operating system, Bloomberg reported on Sunday.
According to Bloomberg, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may be the only devices that will be able to take use of iOS 16’s always-on lock screen option. Wallpapers with “widget-like features” are also expected to be added to the lock screen.
According to Bloomberg, iOS 16 might include social network-like capabilities for Messages and the Health app for the iPhone and Apple Watch.
A request for comment from The Verge was not immediately returned by Apple.
Besides the release of iOS 16, Apple is likely to unveil improvements to its iPadOS 16, WatchOS 9 and TVOS 16 software at WWDC. In addition, Apple is expected to unveil new products, including an updated version of the Mac Pro, a high-performance desktop.
According to Bloomberg, Apple may also unveil a new MacBook Air with an M2 processor at WWDC. Supply chain issues have been cited as a probable reason for the device’s delay.
