Apple released iOS 16.2 Beta 3 on Tuesday (15) to all those enrolled in its developer program. In addition to bug fixes, the main new feature is a change to the Always-On-Display (AOD) option. Thus, users will be able to make the resource lighter and minimalist, giving it a face more similar to what we see in smartphones with Android.
In its original version, the Always-On-Display of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max shows all the information on the screen at all times, including the wallpaper, but with a much lower light intensity. The feature became new in this version of the Apple phone, however, it ended up being divisible by users.
After a wave of criticism from both the press and the apple fan community, the company decided to move in this regard.
In iOS version 16.2, an option will be added to remove the smartphone’s Always-On-Display wallpaper and some notifications. With this, AOD will be more minimalist, similar to the same alternative on Android devices.
To make the change, just open the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max settings and select the brightness and display options. Finally, the person can choose what they want to make visible in the resource.
The novelty turns out to be welcome, as it gives users more personalization choices for their cell phone.
Apple Music will also have news
With iOS 16.2 Beta 3, Apple is making minor changes to the Apple Music app. New shuffle and play buttons will be introduced to give users’ playlists a more translucent look.
Therefore, whenever the individual is enjoying their favorite songs, these buttons will reflect the colors of the background, staying with the style of the selected album image. It may not be a revolutionary difference, but it guarantees greater immersion for fans of their favorite singers and bands.
When they were announced in September 2022, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max brought changes that further distanced them from regular gadget models🇧🇷 In addition to Always-On-Display, the devices do not have the old notch and feature Dynamic Island, a pill-shaped cutout on the screen to house the front camera and Face ID sensors.
It is worth noting that the new features are only available to those who are part of Apple’s developer program. Anyone who participates, however, is required to pay an annual fee of $99.
However, if you have the patience, options should enter public beta in the near future.
