Delhi : The new iOS 16.4 software update will soon be available from Apple. The new version for iOS 16.4 is presently being tested and comes with a tonne of brand-new features and bug fixes. The additions will improve the user interface and security to improve the performance of the iPhone. They will include new emojis, menu upgrades, push notifications, and more.

Date of iOS 16.4 release

The following software upgrade, which is slated for release in the spring, comes after iOS 16.3's debut. The new iOS version is anticipated to be released in the next weeks, most likely around the end of March or in early April given that the season has arrived.

Apple is continuing to issue beta versions of its upcoming iPhone and iPad software, which should be released to all users - along with updates to macOS, watchOS, and tvOS - in the next three weeks or so, according to a recent newsletter from the firm.

Developer beta testers can already access the iOS 16.4 beta at this time. Importantly, the more recent version of iOS works with the iPhone 8 and newer models.

New Emojis

With Unicode 15.0, Apple will add new emojis to iPhone keywords. A shaking face, a heart with three new colour options, a donkey, a moose, a jellyfish, and other items are part of the new set.

Safari for web-based push notifications

On iPhones, the new iOS upgrade will also include opt-in support for web-based push notifications. Once enabled, this push notification feature will enable users to use the Safari web browser to get notifications from websites.

Beta Updates Menu

Also, Apple is introducing a new "Beta Updates" menu under General? Software Update in the Settings app. Members of Apple's Developer Program will be able to access and use the developer betas of iOS upgrades through this new menu. The beta installation procedure will be made simpler by this menu.

Added function in the Podcasts app on Apple

Apple is also introducing updated podcast and music user interfaces. iOS 16.4 is used. A list of podcast channels will be available in one location via a new Channels menu in Apple Podcast as part of the new functionality. 

Architecture for the new home app

Apple is reintroducing the New HomeKit architecture, which was initially included in an earlier version of iOS 16 but was then deleted. The performance, effectiveness, and dependability of the app for managing smart home accessories are believed to be enhanced by the new architecture.

Here are some additional enhancements that will be included in the iOS 16.4 update:

  • Apple is expanding carriers' and some markets' 5G support.
  • With the Apple Books app, Apple is bringing back turn-page animation.
  • South Korea will now be able to use Apple Pay thanks to the new upgrade.
  • New settings for the always-on display on the iPhone 14 Pro will be included in iOS 16.4, including the option to connect the function to a Focus mode.
  • Apple is also adding content previews for Mastodon in Messages, a feature similar to one it offers for tweets.
