According to Gurman, iOS 16 will not have many substantial visual changes, but it will include new methods of engaging as well as some "fresh Apple apps." Apple is also expected to include some new widgets to iOS 16, as they have mostly remained unchanged since the release of iOS 14.

Apple will release the latest iOS version, iOS 16, this year. iOS 16 will be the successor to iOS 15 and will include various new features and enhancements. According to Bloomberg's Apple expert Mark Gurman, the operating system will have new methods of interacting with the device as well as some "fresh Apple apps."

According to Gurman's claim in the "Power On" newsletter, iOS 16 will feature new methods to interact with the system as well as some "fresh Apple apps." Gurman has also provided some further information on what Apple has in store for the future version of iOS and iPadOS, which will be unveiled in the coming weeks at the company's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC).

"While I don't expect Apple to deliver a complete software revamp, there should be significant improvements across the system, new methods of engaging, and perhaps new Apple apps. WatchOS 9 news will be significant as well," Gurman was reported as adding.

He also stated that WatchOS 9 will be a big improvement over the previous year's WatchOS 8. He previously stated that a revised notification system and additional health and fitness monitoring features for iOS 16 are in the works.

Apple may potentially unveil watchOS 9 during the next WWDC22 event, which begins on June 6. Gurman stated in a previous article that Apple may launch a new low-power mode with watchOS 9, which might allow a few extra applications and functionalities. The current Power Reserve low-power option allows Apple Watch models to merely display the time. The Cupertino business is also expected to upgrade some of the existing built-in watch faces.
