iOS 16 and iPhone 14: Tips and tricks

The Weekender
Even if you didn’t get a new iPhone this week, the release of iOS 16 should make it feel like you did.
In addition to the marquee features, like the new customizable Lock Screen, Apple swirled in a bunch of quality-of-life improvements that made my iPhone 13 Pro feel fresh. (Everything seems even fresher on the new iPhone 14 Pro, though. Love that crazy Dynamic Island!)
If you haven’t upgraded your iPhone already, you should. (Benchmarks show that iOS 16 doesn’t destroy performance or battery life on older iPhones.)
As soon as you’re up to date, check out our how-tos below, which showcase some of the great new things that iOS 16 enables.
Enjoy your weekend,
