What iOS 16 can tell us about the iPhone 14 – video

Speaker 1: Apple unveiled iOS 16 at WWDC a few weeks ago, the new iPhone software comes packed with much-desired features and tools, such as the ability to customize the lock screen or edit messages. It may also reveal some clues for the next iPhone, AKA, iPhone 14. Wow that’s been rumored to be. I’ve already told a lot while Apple has told us a lot about the new features to come [00:00:30] to the current iPhone, it lacked any specific mention of what to expect from the iPhone 14, which is not surprising as Apple never covers new products before announcing them. Occasionally, however, Apple reserves certain software that makes hickies for the annual iPhone event. So maybe debut, see these features as exclusive to the latest iPhone. Some of them may be that these certain functions require more processing power, and this is usually associated with [00:01:00] a newer iPhone. But for example, remember about cinema mode. Speaker 1: Well, it was gone when Apple introduced iOS 15 to WWDC in 2021. Instead, it showed up as a feature of the iPhone 13 last fall, although if you look closely there are some subtle tips sprinkled on iOS 15, like Portrait Mode for FaceTime Calls. So IE is easy [00:01:30] Imagine Apple making Portrait Mode for video recording, which is basically what Cinema Mode is. And iOS 16 seems no different. Several features look like they’re offering us hints, uh, previews of what we can see on the next iPhone. And there is one tip that is actually hidden in the code for iOS 16. Let’s get to it. Speaker 1: [00:02:00] The iPhone 14 can always be on display. Now I was disappointed that Apple didn’t add the Always On Display option in iOS 16. And if you’re wondering what’s going on, it’s a handy feature that can be found on many Android phones and even the Apple Watch. Always on the display will show you basic information such as time and weather while the phone is asleep. And instead of illuminating the entire display, just like the lock screen, does it always only activate part of the display? [00:02:30] screen to save energy. This is a great convenience and will make the iPhone much, much more eye-friendly. Now a publication of nine to five Mac claims to have discovered multiple references in iOS 16 that suggest support and always on display. Now it could be the future of the iPhone. The blog found references to backlight management tools as well as hidden flags for engineers that would allow them to test the feature on an iPhone [00:03:00] 13. Speaker 1: Hey Patrick, why the iPhone 13? Well, since the iPhone 14 isn’t available yet, but here’s the second crinkle and always on display may have limited support as frustrating screens may have to go below 10 or less to save power. And that’s below on regular iPhones, a refresh rate of 60 Hz. To give you an idea, the always displayed on your Apple Watch runs at one hertz. [00:03:30] One hurts, one hurts, one hurts. One wounded. You have an idea that is not supported on any current iPhone. Yes, the iPhone 13 pro I know can drop down to 10Hz, but if Apple wants or needs a lower refresh rate this could be the reason why it always debuts on the display on an iPhone 14 pro or 14 pro with accents, it probably is new display hardware required, but even without these hints in the code, [00:04:00] the improved customizable lock screen also hints and always shows in a special way how iOS 16’s notifications are now grouped at the bottom of the screen. And it makes me wonder if Apple is experimenting with the ways in which screen real estate behaves, which is essential to always work. Since it only uses a portion of the screen to save power, the new Iowas sixteen lock screen widgets are another potential tip [00:04:30] because they feel closer to the Apple Watch complications and therefore more conspicuous, but let’s move on to another possible iPhone 14 tip or feature. Speaker 1: One of the more subtle features of iOS 16 is the improved visual search. This can identify objects, people, pets, landmarks in photos, and provide additional information or context. Now a cool accessory this year [00:05:00] is the ability to touch the photo to remove the background. You can literally touch and lift a foreground object such as a person or a dog from the background of a photo and then add that cutout to another app to share or create a collage. I’ve seen Cinema Mode benefit from the machine learning that powers this new Tapit visual search tool. Now machine learning acceleration coupled with a possibly new 16-bionic chip in the next iPhone [00:05:30] can make movies in cinema mode look better. Objects can be cut out more reliably and have a background that is more consistently out of focus. Apple could also use this separation technology to make the Cinema Mode feel more akin to Portrait Mode. This means I can replace the background with black or put the object on a white background. And now another iPhone 14 tip Speaker 1: [00:06:00] Editing a customizable Apple lock screen also hopes to see a refurbishment of the camera app on the iPhone 14 pro. Now, new professional features such as Pro Raw and ProRes video recording have appeared in several years. And when you have these settings turned on, the camera interface looks a little tight, perhaps there is a professional mode that you can turn on and off, and it also provides shortcuts for adjusting your camera settings. How [00:06:30] as opposed to forcing me to go to the settings app, scroll all the way to cameras and change them there. Or maybe Apple will just clean the app’s interface to make it more visually appealing. Do not get me wrong. The iPhone still has one of the best camera apps on any phone sold today, but just like family, it can outgrow your home. Speaker 1: The number of features and modes starts to increase from the original application trial. At the end of today [00:07:00] all of this, all I said, all the words that come out of my mouth are speculation and we don’t know anything about the next iPhone until Apple announces it. But if there is one certainty, it has to run on iOS 16. But now I want to hear from you what do you think about iOS 16 as well as what would you like to see from us in the future? We do a regular series about apple stuff every week and I would like to finally hear your thoughts and questions, do all the YouTube stuff like subscribe, ring the bell. [00:07:30] And thank you very much for watching our movie.
