The launch of iOS 16.2 is approaching and with it comes new details of what this update will offer Apple users. One of the novelties will be particularly interesting for those who disagree with the always-on display of the iPhone 14 Pro.
With the new update it will be possible to disable the appearance of your wallpaper on the always-on display. A possibility that many iPhone 14 Pro users have wanted since its launch.
With iOS 16.2 it will be possible to disable wallpapers in the always-on display
For years iPhone users have wanted an always-on display feature on their smartphone. This wish was granted with the launch of the iPhone 14 Pro, but Apple’s approach did not please everyone.
Contrary to what happens in the Android market, Apple’s approach consists only of reducing the brightness of the screen. That is, the user-defined wallpaper does not disappear and this causes many to think that they have received a new notification.
If you are one of those who yearn to be able to disable this behavior, your prayer will be answered with the release of iOS 16.2. This version of the operating system introduces new options for the always-on display.
As you can see from the image, we have two new options: show wallpaper and show notifications. Yes, with this update you will also be able to disable the appearance of notifications on the always-on screen of your iPhone 14 Pro.
However, the last option seems to be a little against the widely established concept of the advantages of having an always-on display. This feature is for us to see important information at a glance, namely our notifications.
iPad Pro Stage Manager takes better advantage of external monitors
Apple’s next operating system update will also bring great news to iPad Pro users. A novelty that concerns the Stage Manager and its behavior when connected to an external monitor.
With iPadOS 16.2 it will be possible to take full advantage of the potential of any external monitor. That is, the content will no longer be simply mirrored and users will be able to use all available space on the screen.
This means that the black bars that appear on the sides of the presented content will disappear. It should be noted that this is a novelty only available on iPad Pro models with M1 or M2 processors.
As for the availability of iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2, that should happen sometime in December. For now, only participants of the respective beta programs can enjoy these news.
