Apple decided to surprise us last Tuesday with the expected renewal of the MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and HomePod. Along with them, we also saw the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, two absolute beasts in terms of performance and power (at least according to Apple itself). Now, the guys from Cupertino have officially confirmed the arrival of iOS 16.3, an update that will arrive very soon on our iPhones.
The first beta for developers of iOS 16.3 already brought very interesting new features, such as compatibility with physical security keys. Thanks to this functionality, we will enjoy extra protection when logging in with our Apple ID. However, the best security ones do not stop here, since we will also have end-to-end encryption in iCloud data.
Although encryption was already available in the United States, it is now that Apple has extended it worldwide. Through the Settings of our iPhone, we can establish that the iCloud information is encrypted and that it becomes inaccessible to external entities. Of course, you must be careful here too: if you are not able to access your Apple ID, you will have to say goodbye to your data. To avoid greater evils, Apple has provided the option of establishing an emergency contact to guarantee the security and preservation of our content.
iOS 16.3 code reveals development of classical music app
The future release of iOS 16.3 has hinted at an application that Apple has been developing for some time. Specifically, it is about its future platform focused on classical music. Through a 2021 press release, Apple announced that it planned to launch an app dedicated entirely to classical music lovers. Among some of its features, it would include better navigation capabilities and detailed information of the pieces. Unfortunately, we do not yet have a confirmed release date for said application.
