*** This article will be edited directly ***

Unsurprisingly, Apple also introduced the new operating system for iPhones at the start of WWDC 2022 today, which we can download from the fall. We take a look at all the innovations just introduced and the changes we can expect. One thing is for sure: in the end, there were some exciting features!

Interesting in advance: The main live stream has begun with the introductory video, while Tim Cook and Craig Federighi appeared earlier. However, only a few guests and developers who were invited to Apple Park in person saw this. However, only a pre-shoot stream will be shown on site. He and Tim Cook started sharing some updates on Apple’s efforts to support the developer community. Picture bullshit as always. The fact of defending monopoly, which generates billions in profits and destroys competition, is not worth mentioning.

Craig Federighi was the guy who took us back through what’s new in the keyword. In addition, iOS was the first system to be featured in the keyword. And of course it’s iOS 16! Craig was in the Steve Jobs scene! According to Craig, the update should be about the lock screen, sharing options, and more.
