One of the major feature additions to iOS 16.2 is the addition of an entirely new collaboration app called Freeform. This app was first showcased at WWDC 2022, with a promise that it will be rolled out to all devices that run iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and MacOS Ventura 13.1. Freeform is a feature-loaded app that supports up to 100 collaborators while also boasting advanced capabilities, including FaceTime integration, multiple file format support, and the ability to work with infinite canvases.
iOS 16.2 also marked the debut of another app called Apple Music Sing. In case you haven’t guessed already, this music-focused app is designed to let iPhone users sing along to their favorite songs in Apple Music. Among the features of Apple Music Sing include the ability to fully adjust the vocals of a song, thereby letting users perform a duet with the original artist, or even go completely solo. The app also supports beat-by-beat lyrics, making it easier for karaoke enthusiasts to sing along.
In addition to these new apps, Apple also added new features to the lock screen experience with iOS 16.2. These features, however, are exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models, and allow users to hide notifications when the Always-On-Display feature is turned on. Apple has also made changes to the Sleep Widget which now shows the most recent sleep data.
