Apple says iOS 16.1 will introduce Live Activities, an interactive notification feature designed to let the user keep an eye on what’s happening in real-time on the lock screen and dynamic island.
However, the novelty is not included in the beta version because the developers are still working on implementing the support. The update also adds the US Clean Energy Charging Tool.
iOS 16.1 also comes with changes to the Wallet app, changes to the lock screen customization interface, and more. The latest iPadOS 16.1 beta expanded Stage Manager to the 2018 and 2020 iPad Pro models.

If you already have an earlier beta version installed on your device, just check for the update on your iPhone or iPad, as updates are automatically installed on Apple TV and HomePod.
Unfortunately, Apple has not shared a log of the changes present in these updates, so it may still take a few days before we find all the new features present in them.

As with previous generations, the trial version is dedicated to people who want to try out features that were not made official by the company in the main version. According to rumors, one of the functions that may arrive in future updates in the beta section is ‘clean loading’, a tool announced by Apple, but details of which were not disclosed.

Reportedly, the Cupertino giant also released the second beta of iPadOS 16.1 to developers about three weeks after the first build. For now, apparently no new features were introduced by the company in the initial betas, but that should change in future updates.
If you’re not a beta tester, you’ll need to join the program to get early updates on iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS. This can be done quickly by going to the company’s support page, but it’s worth noting that unlike the stable package, betas can have errors and bugs during use.
