Additionally, Gurman expects the Messages app to get “more social networking-like functionality, especially for audio messaging.”
As for iPadOS 16, Gurman expects “major changes to windows and multitasking”.
On tvOS 16 probably the interface will not change at all but there will be “more connections for the smart home”, so the home automation devices will be better controlled.
watchOS 9, on the other hand, will bring “significant improvements that affect daily operation and navigation”, along with new watch faces and a new power saving mode .
