In addition, this beta not only gives many hints that the final version is coming, but also regularly “announces” its release. And it is that Apple with the betas works as follows, always after the launch of this version, the following week is when the final version is released to all usersIn other words, the final release of iOS 16.3 will take place next week, with all the news that this version brings under its belt and that we will tell you about below.
The big news is completely related to the security and privacy of users, and that is that Apple incorporates the physical security keys, that is to say, that from now on, all users who have updated their equipment to the latest versions that will be released next week, will be able to use a device as a way to carry out two-factor authentication. This comes to replace the mythical security code that comes to all Apple devices when you want to log in with your Apple ID, adding extra security for everyone.
In addition to this great improvement, Apple also includes different improvements and new features, less flashy, but also worth mentioning. Enter a new native wallpaper called “New Unity” that honors the history and culture of people of color in celebration of Black History Month, also includes support for the new HomePods and, of course, fixes the bugs that some users were suffering with the current versions, in order to improve the experience and operation of the equipment.
