Apple has confirmed that it will release iOS 16.5 next week, with watchOS 9.5 also confirmed to arrive at the same time.
While Apple has yet to definitively confirm the release, it made the reveal window vague when it announced the Apple Watch face and the new Pride Apple Watch band, as well as its new Pride iPhone wallpaper.
Hidden beneath the newsroom post was a brief footnote announcing the new software that confirmed that, sure enough, the new software would be required to access the new wallpapers. And yes, both updates are just around the corner.
“New Pride Celebration watch faces and iPhone wallpapers will be available next week and require watchOS 9.5 and iOS 16.5,” Apple’s newsroom post said.
Unfortunately one shouldn’t get too excited about what’s to come. The update will allow users to start a new screen recording using Siri for the first time, while there will be a new addition to the Apple News app – adding a sports tab to make it easier for people to access sports. The news they want to see.
The iOS 16.5 update is likely to be the last one of its kind, with Apple moving towards the iOS 17 update after that. That software will be announced during WWDC in June, while the release won’t be made available to the public until September if previous years are anything to go by.
