Apple released a number of new betas this week, including iOS 16.1 beta 1, watchOS 8.1 beta 1, iPadOS 16.1 beta 2, and more.
These new betas come the same week that Apple released iOS 16 and watchOS 9 and bring some new features to Apple devices.
iOS 16.1 beta 1 brings some features to the iPhone that iOS 16 missed, and we get more information about those features in a new video from Brandon Butch.
Some of the new features that are coming to iPhone with this update include the new Live Activities feature for the lock screen.
Battery percentage feature has also been added to all iOS 16 compatible devices, this includes iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 Mini and Phone 13 Mini, these devices did not get the feature in iOS 16.
The new version of iOS 16.1 beta 1 is now available for developers to try out, and we expect a new public beta to be released soon as well.
Since this is the first beta in the series, it will be some time before the final version of the software is released, and we expect that to happen sometime in October. Once we have some details about the release date, we’ll let you know.
