The fifth beta of iOS 16 for developers has arrived with a curious and long-awaited novelty: the possibility of activating the battery percentage without having to access the control center. This, however, is not the only useful feature that has been included in the latest version of what will be the next big update for the iPhone. apple too has devised a really useful way to prevent gallery from being flooded with screenshots that we make to send, for example, to a friend or family member.
The new beta of iOS 16, in particular, includes a new option that appears when a person takes a screenshot and, from the editing page, clicks on the ‘Done’ button, which allows the image to be saved in different locations. Until now, Apple offers the possibility to save the capture in Photos, in a note, in the Files app or even permanently delete it. With the new update, however, a button called ‘Copy and delete’ is also added.
This new option in iOS 16, as its name suggests, allows you to copy the screenshot to the iPhone’s clipboard so that the user can later paste it, for example, in a text box and share it through iMessages or on social networks or by email. Apple, meanwhile, will remove the screenshot so that it does not appear in the gallery. It is therefore a really useful option if you need to share something quickly, but don’t want to store that image.
iOS 16 beta 5 also brings back battery percentage
The other great novelty of iOS 16, we reiterate, is the possibility of activating a percentage of the battery in the same icon that appears in the upper part of the screen. Currently, with iOS 15, to see the specific battery level it is necessary to access the control center, or check the percentage through the different widgets that iOS allows to include both on the home screen and on the side page. With iOS 16, however, it is possible to activate the percentage through an option available in the system settings.
The user, therefore, should only access Settings > Battery and tap on the ‘Battery Percentage’ option. In the upper area, within the battery-shaped icon, the number that corresponds to the current level of autonomy of the iPhone will appear.
iOS 16, let’s remember, will arrive in the fall on the different compatible iPhone models. In addition to these small new features, the new version also allows you to fully customize the lock screen, edit or delete messages, and other improvements related to security and privacy.
