Apple’s iOS 16 is Now Available to Download; Here’s How to update Your iPhone

Apple’s latest and greatest mobile operating system, iOS 16 rolls out for compatible iPhones alongside the watchOS 9 for  Apple Watch variations.

The new OS is now free for a download and supports any iPhone 8 or later, together with 8 Plus, the second-generation and third-generation iPhone SE, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 mini,  iPhone 12, iPhone 13 Pro Max, , iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Plus and the iPhone 14.

In order to get the recent update, users will have their choice between an over-the-air  option at the Settings section, or by simply plug their phones to the MacBook/PC machines (make sure your iPhone is charged above 50% before you start the update).

If the server is under load, the update may take a while to download but as soon as it is ready to download, just click on the Install Now button.

In an update later this year, Apple will introduce iCloud Shared Photo Library to give families a new way to share photos seamlessly with a separate iCloud library that up to six users can collaborate on, contribute to, and enjoy. Live Activities will make it even easier to stay on top of things happening in real time, right from the Lock Screen, such as a sports game, ride-share, or food delivery order, and Clean Energy Charging aims to decrease the carbon footprint of the iPhone by optimizing charging times for when the grid is using cleaner energy sources. The update will also bring support for the Matter smart home connectivity standard once it becomes available later this fall.
