Although iOS 16 is, Apple already has revealed some details about what’s coming for the operating system. A feature called Clean Power Charging, which the company will roll out to the US as part of an update later this year, will optimize charging times to account for when the power grid is on. Apple says the goal is to reduce the carbon footprint of iPhones.

The feature complements the battery charge optimization option that Apple introduced a few years ago to maximize battery health. With this setting enabled, your iPhone will determine its daily charging routine and limit the battery charge to 80 percent until around the time you’re ready to start using your iPhone (or Mac, as it also has the feature).

Also, iCloud Shared Photo Library is coming later this year. That will create a separate iCloud Library that can be accessed by up to six people. Apple will also introduce support for the Matter smart home standard once that happens.

Those with one now have access to a bunch of new features, mostly related to customization. The live activities feature should make it easy to track certain things in real time, like the status of a delivery and sports scores. The option to edit and unsend messages in iMessage will be a big deal for many, as will the ability to copy and paste an object from one photo to another.
