New Charging Animation for lock Screen

New Battery Percentage indicator

With iOS 16, iPhone X and later users can now see the battery percentage in the status bar for the first time. Apple is working on this new battery indicator even though the first beta version of iOS 16.1 has enabled this feature for more iPhone models, such as the iPhone XR and iPhone 12 mini.

In the past, the battery icon did not match the Battery percentage. With iOS 16.1, Apple redesigned the battery indicator after multiple complaints. With the new indicator, the battery level is indicated by a dynamic icon.

Use Fitness+ without Apple Watch

In iOS 16.1 beta 2, Fitness Plus can be subscribed to without an Apple Watch. During its Far Out event, the company announced this change.

Copy and Paste permission

The iOS 16 update introduced new permission for copying and pasting between apps. As a result, the user is informed when an app attempts to paste from the clipboard, which can sometimes happen unintentionally. Although users have allowed a specific app to access the clipboard, this alert repeatedly appears to them. This issue has been fixed in iOS 16 beta 2.
