Updates expected in the future in iOS 16
Some anticipated updates and aspects were not declared openly at WWDC, but may previously appear later in the year. For example:
Always-on display: Before the launch of iPhone 13, gossip were whirling about Apple ultimately carrying out an always-on display with time, date, notifications, and additional quick data at a glimpse. It didn’t arrive with those phones, but maybe those rumours of an always-on display feature being tested were actually about an iOS 16 feature. There does seem to be some evidence that an always-on display could be coming to iPhones in 2022, at least on the new iPhone 14 models.
