How To Install The New iOS 16 Update: Step-by-Step Guide

install iOS 16

Buckle up, folks! Get ready to get a new phone without having to buy one. Apple released the much-anticipated iOS 16, the latest major software update for the iPhone lineup. Personally, I have been itching to install the iOS 16 update. From the get-go, the update looks different, mainly because the lock screen is no longer the same. It’s now customizable with a redesigned lock screen with new ways to customize and widgets for information at a glance.

Messages also has new features including the ability to edit or unsend a message you just sent. With Visual Look Up, you can lift the subject of an image from the background and copy-paste it into Messages and Mail.

The iOS 16 software update will be available on the iPhone 8 and later. Here is a list of compatible devices.

  • Obviously the iPhone 14 line-up
  • iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • The iPhone X, iPhone 11 XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
  • The iPhone 8 and  iPhone 8 Plus
  • Also, the iPhone SE (2020) and iPhone SE (2022)

If you have any device other than this, your luck just ran out.
