Apple has released the latest version of iOS 16 for all iPhone users. The biggest feature of the iOS 16.2 software update is 5G connectivity. This update gives Indian users access to 5G network on certain iPhone models. Along with 5G connectivity, the latest iOS update also adds new lock screen widgets, Live Activity, a new app to improve collaboration, and more. Let’s check out some of the key features that have arrived with the iOS 16.2 update.
Apple’s 5G launch for iPhone users in India
iPhone users in India can install the new iOS 16.2 update on their devices to start accessing 5G connectivity in areas where it is available. However, it is important to note that Reliance Jio and Airtel are the only telecom providers that have started offering 5G coverage in select cities. Therefore, iPhone users can only access the 5G network from places where this service has already been launched.
Additionally, not all iPhone users can access 5G on their smartphones, even when their area has 5G coverage. Users who have an iPhone older than the iPhone 12 series will not be able to connect to the 5G network. Older iPhone models do not support 5G.
iOS 16.2 has added other features as well
The latest Apple software update for iPhones has added a karaoke feature to the Apple Music platform called – Apple Music Sing. The feature supports customizable vocals, real-time lyrics, and even allows users to perform duets.
iOS 16.2 allows iPhone 14 Pro users to hide the wallpaper and notifications in Always On Display (AOD) mode. This feature works similar to what Android phones offer.
Apart from this, Apple has improved the AirDrop feature with more options, advanced data protection in iCloud, better search functionality in Messages and new lock screen widgets. The new update also adds a new Freeform app that offers better collaboration with other Apple devices, as well as a new game feature for multiplayer games.
