A few minutes ago iOS 16 beta 3 is finally available and, as usual, through this article we will go to see what’s new and how it improves compared to beta 2.

This article will be constantly updated because we will add new features as we review the firmware and find them. You can help us by leaving a comment and indicating some news that we missed, perhaps attaching a screenshot.

What’s new in iOS 16 beta 1 and beta 2

If you missed the previous articles with a lot of news in the beta 1 and beta 2 of iOS 16, then click the boxes below to read the insights:

What’s new in iOS 16 beta 3

1. Apple introduced two new clock fonts in Lockscreen. One of the two is more subtle and echoes the clock style of iOS 15 (and earlier). In this way, those who do not love the new Unlock Screen or those who need some time to get used to it, can use this font to get the feeling that, at first glance, nothing has changed.

2. Once you have chosen a wallpaper for the Unlock Screen, it will appear automatically an assistant to manage the Home screen wallpaper. Through a popup we will be asked if we intend to use the same background of the Lockscreen also for the Home Screen or if we want to customize it. By choosing the second option, the editor will open from which we can blur the background, use solid colors or draw another image from our gallery.

3. New extreme isolation mode called “Lockdown Mode“. It is a modality extremely safe to operate in and Apple explains that most users should never have reasons to use it. It was created exclusively for the figures (political and otherwise) at the highest risk of sophisticated cyber attacks. It is an extreme security mode where it will be impossible to spy on the owner of the iPhone (but at the same time many functions will be disabled). More information in the deepening:

4. Added support for the Photo library shared on iCloud, a new feature already known but which was not present in the previous two betas. The shared photo library on ‌iCloud‌ is designed to make it easier for you to share photos with your family members, and after installing ‌iOS 16‌, ‌iPadOS 16‌ or ‌macOS Ventura‌, it can be configured in the Settings> Photos> Shared Library app. Next, we tap “Start setup” to add the participants with whom we want to share the photos. We can invite up to five people and all participants can add, edit or delete content from the shared library. After activating the function, opening the Photos app will display new configuration screens and we will be able to decide whether to also enable automatic uploads within the shared library or not: that is to say that every photo we take ends up there immediately.

5. Apple remastered the iconic background with the Clownfish present on the very first iPhone model (the one sold only in America). iOS 16 beta 3 makes it available again in a slightly animated version when you switch from the unlock screen to the Home screen. We added it to our site then you can download it from Wallpapers Central:

6. Added a new animation in Settings> Wallpaperwhich explains to users how to change wallpaper directly from the new Lockscreen by simply holding and holding on an empty spot on the screen.

7. iOS 16 beta 3 starts adding the support for virtual credit cards. For those unfamiliar with this, virtual credit cards are issued by some banks and offer alternative numbers for credit or debit cards. Users can enter these numbers on any website and in case they are scammed or if the card details are stolen, they could simply block the virtual card making the numbers null and void, without having to call the bank and without having to do so. that the latter completely blocks the main card whose numbers have always remained secret and private.

8. It is now possible to view the history of AFib measurements directly from the Health app. AFIB technology was designed to detect and control the incidence of atrial fibrillation in patients.

9. A nasty glitch in the Lockscreen has been fixed. When we used a wallpaper that was placed in front of the clock, when we went to lift the screen to unlock the phone, the system would show the clock in the foreground losing the effect of depth with the background. Now this no longer happens, the clock remains in place, behind the background.

10. In beta 2, the “Astronomy” Lockscreen introduced a green dot that shows us our position. With Beta 3, this green dot disappears the moment we lift the screen to unlock the phone. The result is much more pleasing to the eye.

11. With the beta 3 of iOS 16, the Fitness + service gets new medals that can only be won by those who use Fitness +. In the past, training with Fitness + contributed to the achievement of the usual circular medals but now Apple has decided to separate them, giving the new ones a cross shape.

12. The calendar widget on the Lockscreen no longer shows the next scheduled event when the iPhone is locked: it will only appear after recognizing the owner’s face.

13. With the Earth or Moon Astronomy Lockscreen, the Widgets on the unlock screen will no longer overlap the wallpaper. If we use Widgets, the background with the planet or satellite in the lower part of the screen will automatically apply. If we do not use the widgets, they will be positioned on the side.

14. In Settings> General> Info> iOS version we now have the possibility to click to view some details such as the Build number and the list of changes made by this update, visible directly, without having to connect to the Apple site.

What’s new in iPadOS 16 beta 3

1. IPads with an M1 processor will now launch iPhone applications in mode Stage Manager, thus supporting scaling and tiling, as if they were floating windows on the screen.

2. New management menu for Stage Manager on iPad with M1. In addition to the icons, the description of the buttons for carrying out actions is now also shown. All this in a new vertical menu.
