Apple introduced iOS 16.1, iPadOS 16.1 and macOS Ventura


The company has released updated versions of the OS that can be downloaded to compatible devices. In iPadOS 16.1, the Stage Manager multitasking mode appeared, and Mac owners can use their iPhone as a webcam.

iOS 16.1

  • The Live Activity function has been implemented, which allows you to monitor events on the locked screen of your smartphone in online mode (for example, to see where the courier is going or what the score is in the current match). Developers received a special API to integrate such functionality into their applications.
  • In iCloud, you can create a shared media library and invite 6 users (not just Family Access members) to it, each of whom will be able to upload photos and videos from their device.
  • The Clean Energy Charging eco-charging function has appeared, designed to reduce the iPhone’s carbon footprint. In other words, it will be able to monitor the emissions of the energy infrastructure into the atmosphere and charge the smartphone when they are minimal. As an experiment, it will initially work only in the USA.
  • Other: the Fitness+ service will be able to work without an Apple Watch, the Wallet application can be removed from the smartphone, and the battery received a new icon with a charge with percentages.
