Apple releases iOS 16.4 - All you need to know

Apple has just released the iOS 16.4 update, which includes a range of new features that are sure to excite and enhance your experience. 

The update includes 31 new emojis, a voice isolation feature for clearer phone calls, website push notifications, and much more. One of the most exciting new features is the expanded set of emojis. 

You will now have access to a shaking face, a pink heart, two pushing hands, a Wi-Fi symbol, and many others, including various animals and objects. These new emojis were approved by the Unicode consortium last year and were announced to become available with the latest iOS update in February. 

Another new feature is voice isolation for cellular calls, which prioritizes your voice and blocks out ambient noise around you. This feature was previously available for FaceTime calls and other VoIP apps but is now available for cellular calls as well. To enable the feature, simply open the Control Center while on the call, tap on Mic Mode, and choose Voice Isolation from the list. 

The update also includes web push notifications, which allow developers to send web-based push notifications to end users after seeking permission. This is a great feature for new Twitter rivals like Post and T2 that haven't built out native iOS versions of their apps but still want to alert users to important conversations. It also provides a way for Apple to counteract claims that its App Store is the only way to reach mobile consumers. 

Other new features include duplicates album in Photos, which expands support to detect duplicate photos and videos in an iCloud Shared Photo Library, VoiceOver support for maps in the Weather app, and accessibility setting to automatically dim video when flashes of light or strobe effects are detected. 

The keyboard now supports indigenous languages like Chickasaw and Choctaw, and Apple has added support for transliteration for Gujarati, Punjabi, and Urdu keyboards. 

So, if you want to enjoy all of these new features and emojis, simply go to Settings > General > Software Update to update to the latest version. While iOS updates often simply patch security holes or tweak smaller settings, those that deliver new emojis or expanded functionality are often more popular with consumers, leading to high demand for the download. Therefore, you may have to wait a bit to install the latest update on your device.
