Improved Notifications and New Health Tracking Tools could be included in iOS 16

However, Don't Expect a New User Interface.

On June 6, Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will begin, and we may expect the latest versions of Apple's mobile, desktop, and wearable operating systems. Although no particular specifics were revealed in the report, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman claims that iOS 16 will include improved notification handling and additional health-tracking tools. Furthermore, Gurman claims that beta versions of iOS 16 (codenamed Sydney) contain multiple allusions to Apple's long-rumored VR headset, implying that a tech demo of the company's rOS operating system will be shown on stage at the event. The headset will not be revealed at the event, but it is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of this year or in the early months of 2023. WatchOS 9 is rumoured to have additional health and activity tracking features, while iPadOS 16 is slated to include a revamped multitasking UI. What Apple has planned for macOS and tvOS releases remains to be seen. In the next months, we expect learn more about some of the new features coming to Apple's upcoming operating systems, which should help to clarify matters. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, the next major upgrade of Apple's iOS operating system could have "substantial enhancements." According to Gurman's newest Power On email, iOS 16 will include a notification update as well as a slew of new health-tracking capabilities. Those looking for an iOS overhaul, on the other hand, appear to be out of luck. "Despite the fact that the interface hasn't changed much since iOS 7 nearly a decade ago," Gurman added, "I'm not expecting an end-to-end redesign of iOS's interface." He speculates that the extent of Apple's planned interface enhancements may be limited to a tweak to the iPad's multitasking UI. When it comes to Apple's other operating systems, Gurman says watchOS 9 will likely bring improvements to the company's activity and health tracking functions, but he doesn't go into detail. What Apple has planned for the future edition of macOS is even less apparent. The business changed its desktop operating system to look more like iOS with Big Sur. Meanwhile, Apple added capabilities like Universal Control and SharePlay to the more current Monterey. At WWDC 2022, Apple will show off the next macOS with iOS 16 and watchOS 9. This year's annual developer conference for the corporation begins on June 6th. It's possible that Apple will also unveil new hardware at the event, with Gurman confirming that new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models are in the works.
