The public beta for Apple's upcoming update to its most recent operating system, iOS 16.1, has begun to roll out. The beta for developers was already accessible.
– Battery percentage tweak – Clean Energy Charging – Live Activitie – Fitness+ without Apple Watch – Volume Swipe toggle for AirPods Pro 2
One of the most apparent changes in iOS 16 is the new battery icon, which now shows how much battery life is left.
Clean Energy Charging, turned on by default, only charges when electricity with lower carbon emissions is available. This is done to reduce your carbon footprint.
iOS 16.1 adds Live Activities, a dynamic notification that shows real-time app data. The developer version of iOS 16 included the feature.
Before iOS 16.1, the home workout app Fitness+ needed an Apple Watch to function, but that need is no longer present.
In the settings of the AirPods Pro 2, iOS 16.1 includes a new option that you can use to turn off this specific motion. If you turn it off, swiping will stop working.
