What are iOS 16 Live Activities?

Have you watched Apple’s WWDC 2022 event? Don’t agree it was worth watching? You would have noticed how powerful the power pack was and how flawless they introduced all the new upgrades for the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch. Aside from the software update, Apple has also released several brand new MacBook Airs with the upgraded M2 chipset, although there was no mention of an AR/VR headset even after numerous predictions that we would get it. Anyway, one of the major changes is in iOS 16. In this article, we are going to talk about one of the features of iOS 16, “Live Activities”.

What are iOS 16 Live Activities?

In iOS 16, which is coming soon, and with this update, Apple offers users the option to create live notifications on the lock screen called “Live Activities”. Apple has added a new Live Activities tool to handle alerts for activities such as sporting events or Uber travel status, allowing users to stay informed in real time, right from the lock screen, instead of being interrupted every now and then. Like widgets on the iPhone home screen, Live Activities live at the bottom of the lock screen and can display dynamic and real-time information.

On iOS, Live Text is now available in video. Live Text uses on-device technology to identify text in images. It allows you to extract Live Text while watching a video. It is currently being upgraded with video. Users can now pause a movie and interact with the text at any time. They can quickly convert currencies, translate text, and perform all sorts of other tasks.
