New Delhi: Apple Announced the latest version of its operating system — iOS 16 At its annual developer conference WWDC 2022. With iOS 16 arriving later this year, iPhone users will be able to experience some new and interesting features such as a brand new lockscreen, iCloud shared photo library, updates to Messages, Mail and more. Now a new rumor related to the new OS version of Apple has surfaced online.
According to a report by 9to5Mac, iOS 16 is likely to bring the always-on lockscreen to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The publication revealed that this upcoming feature is hinted at in the code for iOS 16 that the company recently released.
According to code found by 9to5Mac, there are three frameworks for managing the backlight of the iPhone’s display. These frameworks are used by various components of iOS, including the lock screen. Simultaneously, the report also states that there are many references to one always on display Within Springboard, which manages the iPhone’s lock screen and home screen.
The report further states that there are hidden flags within iOS 16 that can be used by Apple engineers to enable the Forever capability. Engineers can turn on this functionality even for unsupported devices. This means that Apple engineers can also test the always-on display feature on the iPhone 13 Pro before bringing it to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro.
For those unaware, the developer preview of iOS 16 is available to members of the Apple Developer Program starting today at developer.apple.com, and a public beta will be available to iOS users next month at beta.apple.com. The new software features will be available as a free software update for iPhone 8 and later this fall. For more information, visit iOS 16. Features are subject to change.
