One More Major iOS 16 Feature is Coming to Your iPhone in 2023

iOS 16 was released in September with many new features and a drastic redesign of the iPhone Lock Screen. Over the last few months, Apple has added new features and changes to iOS 16, but there is one more major feature left in store for 2023.

General iOS 16 Feature Yellow
When Apple announces a new iOS version in June, it often announces several features that won't be available when the update initially launches alongside the new iPhones in September. This year for iOS 16, for example, Apple said Live Activities would be made available in an iOS 16 update later in the year and were officially launched in October with iOS 16.1.

Apple has officially released all of the features it initially promised to release following iOS 16's rollout, with one exception. Coming in an update to iOS 16 in 2023, Apple will introduce support for Safari push notifications. Like on the Mac, ‌iPhone‌ users will be able to receive push notifications from their favorite websites through Safari. Apple announced this new feature, which has long been sought by both customers and website makers and companies, earlier in June, promising to release it in 2023.

There are other features we expect to see as part of iOS 16 updates in 2023, but none were initially promised when iOS 16 was first previewed in June. Features like the expansion of Advanced Data Protection into more countries, physical security keys for Apple ID, and more, were all announced in the last several weeks.

Apple is currently testing iOS 16.3 with developers and public beta testers, with an aim to release it in the early part of 2023. iOS 16.3, so far, has no notable new features, but with only the first beta having been released, we'll have to wait a few more weeks to see what the update has in store for ‌iPhone‌ users.
