New Changes in IOS 16.1

After more than a month of beta testing, Apple has finally released iOS 16.1 to the public with the first ever iPadOS 16 release.iOS 16.1 adds features that were delayed from the iOS 16 update, plus it tweaks some existing features and interface options. We've summarised all the new features in iOS 16.1 below.


iCloud Shared Photo Library

Apple delayed iCloud Shared Photo Library in order to work out some of the bugs, but it is available in the iOS 16.1 update. With iCloudShared Photo Library, a total of six people can share one Photo Library, making it easier to distribute photos among friends and family members.



Everyone who is a member of an iCloudShared Photo Library can add, edit, favorite, caption, and delete photos, and users can have one personal library and one shared library. There are tools for swapping between two libraries, and choosing to upload photos to the Shared Library directly from the camera, when other library participants are nearby, and more.


Live Activities

Lock Screen and Dynamic Island feature Live Activities has launched in iOS 16.1. Live Activities are a new notification type that allow you to follow along with something in real time, like an approaching Uber ride, a flight, a sports game, and more.
