Apple’s iOS 16 is now official, with the developer beta already out. The public beta for the same will be available by July, and the final stable build for the software will come by September, once the new iPhone 14 series goes official. Apple announced many features for iOS 16, but it seems many of these will be limited to newer devices, such as the iPhone 11 series or later and the iPhone XS series. This means Apple iPhone 8 series and iPhone X users will miss out on some of these key features. Here’s a look at which features require an A12 Bionic chipset or higher. This one powered the older iPhone XS series and the iPhone Xr devices. Live Text
Live Text is the feature Apple introduced last year, where the iPhone camera can now automatically recognise text from a photo and allows users to copy-paste it. This is Apple’s answer to Google Lens, which is proficient at this. Apple is now bringing Live Text to video, but this will be limited to phones running the A12 Bionic chipset or later.
The new feature will allow users to interact with text in paused video frames, and allows them to use access functions like copy and paste, lookup, and translate. The feature will work in Photos, Quick Look, Safari, and more. It will be limited to English, Chinese, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Ukrainian text. Live Text will now support translation for Japanese, Korea and Ukrainian texts. Apple is also adding Quick Actions to Live Text, where data detected in photos and videos is actionable. So one can track flights or shipments, convert currencies and translate foreign languages. Finally, Live Text can also recognise Japanese, Korean, and Ukrainian texts. Siri Add Emoji in Texts: If you use Siri to dictate texts, you can now insert emojis inside it. However, this is also limited to phones on A12 Bionic and higher. So if you have an iPhone X or 8 series, you will not be able to try this out. Furthermore, Apple says the feature requires users to download speech models for some languages. Indian English is supported in this.
Other Siri features limited to A12 and above are the ‘Hey Siri, what can I do here?’ where users can discover Siri’s capabilities in iOS and apps by asking this question. One can ask a specific question about an app well. Further, Siri will now support the ability to hang up a call hands-free. One just needs to say “Hey Siri, hang up” during a call (those on the call will hear you). This request is supported on Phone and FaceTime. The feature must be enabled in Settings. Dictation’s new features will be limited to A12 and above phones. Dictation
Apple also announced improvements to Dictation on iOS, but the features are again limited to phones running A12 Bionic and above. For instance, the new Dictation experience allows users to move between voice and touch, insert QuickType suggestions, etc., but it will not work on iPhone 8 or iPhone X. Medication feature
The new Medication feature on iOS lets users add their medicines to the app by using the iPhone camera. This will work on iPhone Xs, Xr and later.
Door detection
Apple’s iOS 16 also brings Door Detection, which will help the visually impaired. Apple is adding a Detection Mode in the Magnifier, which will give users rich descriptions of their surroundings. It also has a new Magnifier mode that contains Door Detection, People Detection, and Image Descriptions. However, the feature is limited to select devices. The list includes iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th and 5th generation), and iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd and 3rd generation). Door Detection is limited to devices with iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and others. Live Captions
This is a beta feature where transcriptions are generated automatically in real-time for users who are deaf or hard of hearing. However, this will be limited to the iPhone 11 and later, iPad models with A12 Bionic and later, and Macs with Apple silicon. Apple has added that the “accuracy of Live Captions may vary and should not be relied upon in high-risk situations.” Visual Look Up
Apple is also adding more features to Visual Look Up. This is a feature on iOS where a user can tap on the ‘i’ symbol next to a photo and get more information about it. For instance, it could be a picture of your dog, and you...
