WWDC ’22 – here’s the changes coming to your favourite Apple devices



Apple has just wrapped up its Worldwide Developer Conference in California, unveiling a brand new MacBook Air with the M2 chip, iOS 16 and even its own version of a buy now, pay later scheme to help you purchase all of the latest tech

In what is the iPhone’s most substantial operational revamp since the introduction of the iPhone X users will now be able to select a customised lock screen to suit their day.

While a ‘work’ lock screen might pin emails and turn off social media notifications, a weekend lock screen could actually mute communications from your job, and prioritise different apps.

Apple’s head of software engineering says the redesign allows ‘an incredible set of new personalisation features, making the experience feel incredibly ‘you’.

This release comes just months before Apple is expected to release its iPhone 14, which will have these new features and is rumoured to have an ‘always-on’ display.

In its buy now, pay later offering, the tech giant will allow consumers to take out an interest-free four-month loan on payments made with its Apple Pay service, but unfortunately it’s limited to the U.S. for now.

A redesigned MacBook Air will see a new MagSafe charging port, and a design similar to the current MacBook Pro computers.

Apple has also introduced more customisable watch faces, an enhanced Workout app, sleep stages and an all-new Medications app.

Now sporting a High Definition camera, it will operate through an M2 chip, which is 40 per cent faster than the previous generation.

When it comes to iOS 16, there’s one feature that stands out above the rest.

Users can expect a Messages app that allows the editing or the recall of texts sent impulsively or by mistake.

The dictation service has been revamped, and live text will now work with video, with users able to copy and paste text from paused footage.

In Apple Maps, you will now be able to add multiple stops to a route, while a new  “shared photo library” will allow families and groups of people to bundle all pictures taken together in one shared library.

Finally, a new feature called “Safety Check” will help people leaving abusive relationships terminate device access given to other people with just one click.
