Apple allows users to edit and retrieve iMessages

Apple has added three main features to its messaging app Messages. If the message is an iMessage and not an SMS text, users can edit messages, recall accidentally sent messages, and postpone texts for users to edit later. These small changes will transform the way nearly 1 billion people send texts. – Kif Leswing

Apple’s latest iPhone software iOS 16 announced

Apple just announced iOS 16, the latest software for iPhones.

It’s the “biggest lock screen update ever, completely redefining how it works,” said Apple SVP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi. It’s a brand new look that allows users to customize the lock screen with press and hold widgets that were already available on the home screen. Widgets are small icons that users can click for quick access to tools like the Weather app.

The new lock screen allows for more customization of the font and color of the time and date. Also, users can shuffle their background photos throughout the day or choose animated backgrounds.

It will also change the way users see notifications so they don’t cover up their background photo when their phone is locked. Notifications do not appear at the top of the screen, they appear at the bottom.

Apple also expanded its focus feature to the lock screen. The tool allows users to choose how notifications should be filtered, e.g. B. to only focus on work-related or personal messages.

Apple also made big changes to its iMessage app, including options to edit messages, retract them, and mark threads as unread.

iOS 16 will also extend SharePlay to iMessage, allowing users to watch or listen to media at the same time, allowing them to pause and start in the same place.

The software update also makes it easier to switch between typing and dictation.

People are already making their way to their seats before the keynote. It’s pre-taped, so there’s plenty of big screens for everyone to tune in to. And I like that there is a shaded area.

Here’s what to expect

Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, is all about catering for software developers. They are the people who develop apps for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Watch and TV. This is usually the case when Apple introduces new tools for them and big new updates for iPhone, iPad and other platforms. Apple is reportedly preparing to announce a major new iPad software update that will offer better multitasking, allowing you to run more apps side-by-side at the same time. And the iPhone is expected to receive new lock screen updates. It can also announce new MacBook Airs. However, unlike September’s iPhone events, WWDC usually focuses more on software than hardware. And typically, the software announced at WWDC will be available to everyone sometime in the fall.

Homecoming for Apple employees after two years of remote work

WWDC brings together Apple developers and press for the first time in two years. But the event is also a homecoming for many Apple employees who have been working remotely for the past two years because of the pandemic. Some employees are meeting their teammates in person for the first time, like those who have traveled from other major Apple offices, like the Austin, Texas plant. Apple started requiring company employees to return to the office earlier this year. – Kif Leswing

Apple could also announce new products today

Apple Store down ahead of WWDC 2022 keynote


The Apple Store website is down, suggesting that Apple may also announce new products during the WWDC 2022 event. It seems a bit early to announce the augmented reality headset, so I’m betting on some kind of new Macs. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman hinted over the weekend that Apple might be ready to announce a redesigned MacBook Air. It will reportedly feature MagSafe charging, the latest Apple processor and new colors.

Everyone wonders about Apple’s headset

Apple has been working on a headset for years. According to reports, it could be launched in either 2022 or 2023. It’s the only product that’s on everyone’s mind right now, as it would be an entirely new product area for Apple. It might make sense for CEO Tim Cook and the team to announce the software for the headset, dubbed realityOS, since it’s a developer-centric event with people who would create the apps for the device. However, Bloomberg recently hinted that we may not be able to take a look. Still, we could get clues as to what Apple is planning. The company can build some tools into existing software to allow developers to create virtual or augmented reality versions of their existing applications. In this case, we know the headset can’t be far away. Or maybe we’ll be caught off guard and get a teaser or full announcement.

We are live from the Worldwide Developers Conference for the first time since the pandemic began. Apple invited some media and developers to its headquarters in Cupertino, California to watch the keynote. But there are a few differences from previous years. For one, we’re at headquarters rather than the San Jose Conference Center, where Apple held the event for several years prior to the pandemic.

And the keynote isn’t live like it used to be. Instead, we’re watching a pre-taped version, like everyone who’s tuning in from home. Still, it shows that big tech events are returning to some sort of normality. The Google developer conference in May was also held in person, but was closed to much of the press.
