iOS 16.1 is out, and it brought new features with it
The iOS 16 came out last month and already there’s a new update with additional features for iPhone users. The iOS 16.1 is out, and this is what the upgrade has to offer. See more below.
Read on to learn what’s new with the upgrade.
Only one month after releasing iOS 16, Apple’s already released its newest update with iOS 16.1. The upgrade comes with a host of new features, a few tweaks and some bug fixes for compatible devices. If you haven’t seen for yourself already, here’s what’s new with the iOS 16.1.
iOS 16.1 updated the iCloud shared photo library
The iCloud Shared Photo Library allows you to share your photos and videos with up to five people at once. Any user with access to the Library can add, delete and edit content contained in it.
You can upload your pictures directly from your iPhone’s camera roll to the library. You can also add photos to it when you’re physically with the other people you share the library with. However, it’s not possible to be in two separate shared libraries at the same time.
Another con to the new feature is that once you move your personal pictures to it, it doesn’t duplicate the photos. Therefore, you can only have access to them in the shared library.

Apple Fitness Plus
With the iOS 16.1 upgrade, you don’t need an Apple Watch to have access to Apple Fitness Plus anymore. If you have an iPhone 8 or newer models, you can now track your progress and fitness goals directly from your iPhone.
If you have an iPhone XR or newer, you can now display the battery percentage of your iPhone in the battery meter icon with iOS 16.1. The font has also increased in size, which makes it much easier for users to read.
Wallpaper and lock screen
With the iOS 16.1, Apple made it easier for users to customize their wallpaper. Using the settings > wallpaper menu, you’ll be able to notice that the ability to add a new wallpaper is now more distinct. You also have the option to swipe through wallpapers.
The new update also offers an option for when you’re editing your wallpaper in the lock screen to customize the lock screen and home screen backgrounds.
Screenshot editing tools
The delete, save and copy options that were previously displayed at the bottom of your phone’s screen are now at the top. iOS 16.1 also made them much smaller and less intrusive.
Wallet app updates with iOS 16.1
You can now delete the wallet app from your phone if you choose to. However, if you decide to keep it, you can safely share Wallet app information using iMessages and WhatsApp.
If you have an Apple Card, you can also increase your Daily Cash by depositing money into a high-yield savings account.
