Apple is expected to hold an event on September 7th where it will announce its upcoming iPhone 14 and Apple Watch Series 8 models. The company will also release the final version of its software updates next month. According to a new report, Apple completed development on the initial version of iOS 16 last week ahead of a September release. This means that no new features will be added in upcoming betas. In addition, the company will be working on internal improvements such as bug fixes and performance improvements in the coming days. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman shares the news in his latest Power On newsletter that the company will see fit to release iOS 16 in September, but iPadOS 16 may be delayed. iOS 16 and watchOS 9 are scheduled to release in September along with the new iPhone 14 series and Apple Watch Series 8 models.
Earlier it was noted that Apple may delay the launch of iPadOS 16 for a few weeks. The analyst confirmed this rumor and stated that macOS 13 Ventura and iPadOS 16 will be released to the general public in October. If the news is of any significance, the good news is for iPhone and Apple Watch users who will be able to enjoy the latest features ahead of the release of iPadOS 16. iOS 16 is a major update given the number of features on offer. Some of the most notable features include updates to the Messages app, iCloud Shared Photo Library, a new Battery Percentage icon, and more. However, the highlight of the update will be a new lock screen. The new lock screen will have many customization options.
