Since last Monday our iPhones have been enjoying the new iOS 16.1, an update with several interesting new features. Some of these innovations are very focused on the American market, but there are several that really make this a great update.

New features like iCloud Photo Library Sharing, for example, the simplification of wallpaper settings, and of course Live Activities represent some pretty big changes. Surely of those most like iOS 16.1.

Several details that make the difference

Of the list of changes and novelties, for me, the most interesting is, without a doubt, the possibility of have a common photo library with the family. I take great care in ordering and organizing my photo library and being able to share all that dedication with my family without having to do anything is great news.

A feature I’ve been waiting for since the release of the first beta of iOS 16 in June, which I was able to test (partially) during the beta cycle and now works exactly as I expected, like a single photo library in which we all participate almost without realizing it.

The Live Activities thing is, of course, another of the great novelties of iOS 16.1 and something that I wanted to enjoy for a long time. Here we have had to wait for the first applications to be updated to offer support for this feature. One that also integrates especially well with the iPhone 14 Pro and his Dynamic Island.

These Are The Applications With Which You Can Now Try Live Activities On Ios 16 1

Now, apps like Flighty, Carrot, Pestle or Landscape allow us to see, dynamically and in real timefrom the lock screen, information as important as the status of a flight, the weather, the preparation of a recipe or the route that we are going to walk or run.

Details such as the simplification of the customization of the lock screen, which now allows us to choose which screen to modify before starting it, or the back of the charging indicator on the lock screen are also welcome.

Finally, a special mention to the charge with clean energy. A function that is only available in the United States, but that catches my attention. A function that allows us to charge, usually at night, our iPhone when the mains electricity comes from cleaner sources.

With iOS 16.1 comes Passkeys: the convenient secure alternative to passwords

All in all, a very interesting update in several ways. One that we can already enjoy and that, as if that were not enough —and something we must never forget—, brings several improvements for security and privacy. And this is just the beginning of iOS 16.
