Apple iPhone 14 Pro Insider Teases Surprise Upgrade

According to a new report, an amazing new feature could be coming to iPhone 14 Pro powered by the software.

Apple’s next major iPhone software release, iOS 16, is set to be revealed at the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference. Apple’s next major iPhone software release, iOS 16, will be unveiled at the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The keynote will be recorded but streamed live to a select group of developers in Cupertino as well as the rest of the world. It could be Apple’s largest new product category reveal for almost eight years.


May 30, update. More information is available about the forthcoming software-fest known as WWDC 2022, and how it will impact the iPhone 14 Pro. Gurman doubled down on other reports and said, “As we’ve discussed previously,” that other iPhone 14 Pro features include a new front camera and Face ID cutout as well as an A16 chip, a 48-megapixel rear camera, and a new front-facing cam. It’s also possible to send emergency texts over satellite networks.” This last one is particularly interesting and something that was said could happen last year with the iPhone 13 Pro. Although neither of these options came to pass, it is possible that 2022 will be the year for this major upgrade. This would allow you to send an emergency message via satellite if you are hiking in remote areas without cell service. It’s very cool.

Additionally. Some of the most recent reports support Mark Gurman’s claims about iOS 16. Steve Troughton Smith, for example, claims that WebKit has just added infrastructure to a “multitasking mode” on iOS. It sure seems like it’s an iOS system toggle that allows freely-resizable Windows.


This means that something leaked to iOS is related to iPadOS. Analysts believe that this will be the ultimate upgrade for iPads: multi-window capability like the Mac. This is huge news. Gurman reiterated the above by saying that he expects major changes in windowing and multitasking, especially on iPad. Steve Troughton Smith’s finding confirmed this, indicating that Apple is adding support to its web browsing framework for improved windowing support.


This would be a huge deal. It’s been a long process, with gradual improvements in the overall experience. A final big step like this would be welcome. Troughton Smith says that if they are truly moving in this direction with iPad, it would allow for all-new iPadOS form factors. iPadOS desktops and iPadOS laptops with larger screens, ext monitors, and more. It’s easy to see how Catalyst optimized apps light up in iPad’s new multitasking mode em>


This could impact MacBook sales but Apple says it doesn’t worry about losing its product sales. As long as customers stick with Apple products, it is okay.


Return to the news about the other Gurman predictions…

Even if this doesn’t happen it will still be the first time we see Apple’s software platforms: iOS, iPadOS, MacOS, macOS, Apple Macs, tvOS, Apple TV, watchOS, Apple Watch, and macOS.

Mark Gurman from Bloomberg has updated his Power On newsletter with information about iOS 16. Although most of these innovations are software-only, one of them may indicate something that is locked to the iPhone 14 or parts thereof.


Always-on display

Although many Android phones have this feature, it is not one that the iPhone has. Apple’s motto seems to be “Don’t do it first, make it right.”

Always-on screens are the best because they show the time and what notifications are waiting, if an alarm is set, and so forth. These screens can be configured to display exactly what you need, including a cute animation, as the Huawei screens do. This allows you to glance at your iPhone from a distance and see the time.

All this without destroying the battery.

Gurman claims that the new feature, assuming that it is approved, will be reserved only for Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max. If that’s the case, then the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max won’t have it.

Gurman says it’s a feature that has been in development for some time. “Apple originally planned this feature for the iPhone 13 last year.” This would enable the iPhone to reduce the frame rate on its lock screen by displaying quick glanceable information, similar to the Apple Watches.

It’s huge if it happens.


Also available in iOS 16

Gurman claims there will be a series of major changes to the OS, including updates to notifications, iPad multitasking and the Messages, Health, and Messages apps. A lock screen is another part of the interface that’s often overlooked.

He correctly points out that the flashlight button is the most frequently used lock screen feature. If your usage is similar to mine, then that would be a good thing.

The creation of new “wallpapers with widget-like capabilities” is expected. Gurman has not provided any further details, but this sounds intriguing and suggests a more useful and innovative lock screen.


Messages

The next iPhone software will feature a new Messages app that is “more social network-like,” especially around audio messages.

There are many cool features in Messages, such as the ability to add balloons or confetti to your texts. The fact that advanced stuff is available only between Apple users helps to keep a wholesale move towards multi-platform WhatsApp off the horizon.


Health

Gurman claims that there will be many new features for the Health app on iPhone. We don’t have any more information at this time.

We will continue to add more details, but it won’t be long before all is revealed.
