If you’ve got access to the Beta version of the upcoming iOS 16, you’re in luck. Here are the top 4 hidden features in the latest software update from Apple that you need to try out!
View and Share Wi-Fi Passwords
Although Apple has allowed iOS users to share Wi-Fi passwords for a while now, this could only be done by placing two Apple devices near each other. Also, if you wanted to share a saved Wi-Fi password with someone else, like an Android user or someone on a computer, you had to know the password.
But now, You can go into Settings, go to Wi-Fi and tap the tiny information icon to the right of the network you want the password for. To view the network password, tap the Password section and then use Face ID or enter your passcode to view it. You can then tap Copy to copy the password into your clipboard and share it.
Hidden Albums Now Have Password Protection
Thanks to iOS 16, you can now lock the Hidden album by simply launching the Photos app, and going to the Albums tab at the bottom of the screen. If you scroll down, you’ll see a tiny lock next to the Hidden and Recently Deleted albums. To view what’s inside, use your Face ID or your passcode.
Spot and Remove Duplicate Pics
With iOS 16, when you go into Photos > Albums, you should now see a new Duplicates album under Utilities, where Apple scans through all of your photos and shows you any photo or video you’ve saved more than once. From there, you can either delete any duplicates or simply press Merge, which will keep the photo with the highest quality (and relevant data), and then move the others to the trash.
Pin Tabs In Safari
In Safari, if you press down on an open tab, you now have the option to hit Pin Tab. This will move that tab to the top of Safari, where it will exist as a tiny tab preview, permanently pinned there, which you can then tap to view. If you press down and unpin a tab, it will move to first in your grid of open tabs.
