Apple is working on a new way for users to use and streamline the experience of our Home Screens on our iPhone and iPads according to a new report. The foundations of this novelty reside under the name of “Clarity” and is present in the new beta of iOS 16.2.

The new interface would be a new accessibility featureallowing to change the layout of the Home Screens, increasing the size of the buttons, icons and texts as well as allowing users to customize the Home Screen in other aspects.

According to 9to5Mac, this functionality is not yet included for iOS 16.2 beta users but it will make iPhones and iPads much more accessible to any type of user. By enabling the functionality, the user will have much more say in how buttons and text appear on their iPhone.

For example, users will be able to enable a Larger User Interface, with fewer but larger applications on-screen or have access to physical buttons when Accessibility mode is on. It is also specified that this functionality will be subject to user verification, so that no one can make changes to your device without your permission.

Like other similar accessibility features, the new mode will be easily activated by pressing the side button three times or the start button, getting the settings online. The same method will also be used to quickly disable the feature.

Although we have the first indications of this new accessibility feature in iOS 16.2 beta 2, It is not yet clear if it will be released with the final version of iOS 16.2. As we have already discussed in other articles, this final version of iOS 16.2 is expected to be available in mid-December, but the feature itself could be released as part of a future update in 2023.
