iOS 16.3

Apple says that iOS 16.3 will be released next week. This update went into beta testing in December. It has a few changes and new features, but compared to other updates from Apple in the last few months, it's a small one.

What’s new

In a press release about the company celebrating Black History Month this year, Apple said that iOS 16.3 would be coming out on February 26. There's a new Unity wallpaper for the iPhone and a Unity face for the Apple Watch.

What’s new

Next week, Apple Watch Series 4 or later running watchOS 9.3 and iPhone 8 or later and iPhone SE (2nd generation) or later running iOS 16.3 can use the Unity 2023 watch face.

What’s new

The new Unity iPhone wallpaper for the lock screen will also be available next week. It requires an iPhone 8 or later running iOS 16.3.

What’s new

iOS 16.3 has a few other changes and new features besides the new watch face and wallpaper for Black History Month.

What’s new

– Call with Hold for Emergency SOS works. The iPhone will now wait until you release the buttons to call emergency services, even after the countdown.

What’s new

– You can now add a second layer of security to your Apple ID by using a physical security key.

What’s new

As you can see, this is a pretty minor update that doesn't add or change too much for iPhone users. Since the update hasn't been in beta testing as long as usual, that's not too much of a surprise.
