Apple WWDC – Five sneaky announcements you might have missed, including a new way to unlock your iPhone | The Sun

World News

APPLE has gone all out with big new features for the iPhone.

We got a glimpse of a brand new customisable Lock Screen and even much-desired upgrades to iMessage.

But beyond all the headline stuff, there were plenty of quiet announcements.

They may be small but they'll make a world of difference to how you use your iPhone by the time iOS 16 lands in the fall.

See Wi-Fi passwords

Apple is finally adding the ability to see Wi-Fi passwords stored on your iPhone.

While you've been able to hide any embarrassing or naughty pictures from your main photo stream, practically everyone knew where to find the hidden folder, which made it all a bit pointless.

Well now, it'll be password protected by default.

You can also use Face ID or Touch ID to make it even easier.

Better keyboard

iPhone's keyboard is getting a much needed improvement in the form of haptic feedback.

This means whenever you touch a letter you'll get a gentle vibration.

It may not sound like much but it really helps you know when you've hit a letter and makes typing more seamless.

Face ID in landscape

Many found it odd that Face ID only ever worked when you held it in portrait mode.

Well, now if you've got your iPhone in landscape, Face ID will finally work.

That solves the nuisance of having tilt back and forth whenever you're using an app horizontally.

Improved parental controls

Managing kids' devices has just got a whole lot easier too.
