WWDC 2022 Keynote has ended. It introduced exciting software changes to Apple gadgets, and new hardware in the shape of MacBook Air (M2,2022).
There was something encouraging in the headliners that you didn’t hear in all the noise. It’s now time to shine a light on WWDC 2022’s dust.
These are ten of the things we love that were not on Apple’s radar, but still made it into our top ten.
1. You can send messages to your iPhone that are not acceptable
Ever felt guilty for accidentally sending a wrong message to someone on your iPhone’s messaging platform? Apple cannot help right now, but it will in the future be able update iOS 16 by sending simple messages updates.
iOS 16 will be available later in the year. You won’t have the ability to edit or send messages after you tap on the unfortunate arrow icon. The option will not be available for at least 15 minutes after you have sent a message. However, it can be very helpful. We use Gmail’s “Undo Send” feature almost every day.
2. Apple has ended the Apple Watch Series 3
Apple’s watchOS 9 software will not be available for Apple Watch Series 4 and later models, in a controversial move. This means that it has effectively defeated the Apple Watch Series 3 which is currently on sale.
Series 3 was released in 2017 so it is definitely showing its age. It supports Apple Fitness, and is a great way to get the Apple Watch SE. We recommend Apple Watch SE to take the crown. Series 3 lacks amazing support for watchOS 9.
3. Your iPhone’s lock screen can be very useful
Apple will finally make your iPhone lock screen brighter with iOS 16. It will be available in beta starting July. Apple’s “biggest update” to the lock screen lets you change fonts and add Apple Watch style widgets.
These widgets will provide you with eye-catching information such as weather and calendar events. You can also create custom lock screens that are available for you to swipe between. This ‘innovation’ is a new way to personalize your iPhone. Android users may not be aware of it.
4. Soon, iPhones will double in size as Mac webcams
Apple’s webcams are often a hassle, but Apple just announced a solution: You can use your iPhone to be a wireless Mac webcam. The macOS Ventura’s new Continuum Camera feature will detect your iPhone automatically and let you use it as a camera in any macOS video conferencing app.
Although it may seem like a temporary fix, Apple has created some amazing features in the Continuum Camera. Apart from the standard portrait mode and center stage to blur the background to keep you in the centre of the frame, Studio Lite (think about a virtual ringlight) and a deskview that creates an overhead view on your desk using the iPhone Ultra. – Wide camera.
5. The efficiency of your Apple Watch will be quietly analyzed by it
Apple Watch has always lacked advanced fitness tracking features like some of its rivals, but watchOS 9 is making progress towards changing that. Apart from new watch faces, advanced notifications, the most important update to the Apple Watch is its new running form Matrix.
WatchOS 9 will collect data using machine learning wizards to track three metrics: vertical oscillation, stride length, and ground contact time. This information can be used to improve your skill and help you reach certain PBs. WatchOS 9 will provide all of these metrics (supported by Apple Watch Series 4 or higher) with a few new workout views. If it gives us the strength and will allow us to win, we will unwittingly take its advice.
6. Apple quietly revealed the new Apple TV deal
Although it seemed like WWDC 2022 had left Apple TV owners empty-handed in terms of the gift of software, some details about tvOS 16 were hidden in some developer notes.
The update is a new version of Apple’s socks, although it contains some details about cross-device connectivity improvements and smart home support. Developers can make tvOS 16 even more exciting by describing the second screen information on your iPhone and iPad as your main TV viewing. It is possible to see a lot of promise, but Apple must be more committed than what it shows on its Apple TV platform.
7. Finally, the Apple Home app was rebuilt
Apple supports the Smart Home Standard Matter. But, perhaps more important, it has finally redesigned Underwimming Home in iOS 16.
The update that apparently rebuilt the app in early days looks more modern and usable as a hub for smart home technology. The top of the list is for topics like light, security, climate. Below are live information, including four security camera feeds. Smart home tech that lives upto this promise is what we need.
8. CarPlay wants your entire dashboard
Apple’s CarPlay software can be a great way for your car to have a flattened infotainment experience. But, Apple didn’t stop there. At WWDC 2022, Apple showed a next-gen version that takes up the entire dashboard and includes features such as speedometers. You can also control temperature and other functions.
You can customize the appearance of various gauges and select widgets to provide you with eye-catching information such as weather or music. The downside? The bad side?
9. The iPhone will scan your ears to find the best Airpods sound.
Apple iPhones are capable of taking an average photo, but the front-facing cameras can soon be used to scan your ears. Why? They can also create spatial audio that is more precise and immersive for an “immersive listening experience.”
The TrueDepth camera of Apple will scan your iPhone. This means that you’ll need an iPhone X (or later) to use the scanning feature. We believe the AirPods Pro and AirPods 3 will be the best candidates for the 3D effect. Apple has not yet revealed which headphones will support it. What security do you have over your ear data?
10. The password will be at the end
If your online security is still based upon a questionable password that you created in 2006, Apple and Microsoft have teamed up to support detailed passwordless authentication standards.
Instead of using passwords to log in, you can use the more advanced features of your iPhone’s Touch ID or Face ID to log in to the services of your choice. Apple claims that Paskis are ineligible for phishing because they don’t leave your device or leak because they aren’t stored on any web servers. Is the end of password management the end?
