Apple iOS 16 review: unlocking the lock screen

Apple has tried to shrink that process through Siri voice commands, and part of the Apple Watch's whole appeal is easier access to simple tasks.

It's a long-running and extremely true joke that two-thirds of Apple's new iOS features every year are just Android features from six years ago.

Beyond that, iOS 16 is chock-full of semi-obvious features that it feels like Apple could and should have added a long time ago.

Even in the early betas, iOS 16 was more stable than most new software, which says something not only about Apple's capabilities but also about how much it's really writing from scratch here.

iOS 16 makes most parts of the iPhone at least a little bit better As far as Apple is concerned, I think the company is on the right track.
