IT House reported on September 11 that the official version of Apple’s iOS 16 will be released on September 13, supporting iPhone 8 and later models. Although iOS 16 has been tested for about three months, the first official version will still have some features that cannot be launched.

Live Activity:

First of all, iOS 16's redesigned lock screen is a highlight, allowing users to personalize and choose different styles of colors, backgrounds, and fonts. However, the new Live Events and Live Events API, which allows the home screen to automatically update notifications for live events such as sporting events, Uber, and more, are still unavailable. Therefore, the real-time activities of the light app will also not be available in the official version.


Freeform, which is expected to launch in iOS 16, iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura, will also be available later this year. Freeform is a new team collaboration app, with the Freeform App, users will have a canvas to chart new projects and collaborate in real time while chatting via iMessage or FaceTime.

Game Center will also be missing two features:

  • Simultaneous sharing support: Games that support Gamer Center multiplayer have integrated simulcasting sharing . You can play games directly together in a FaceTime call with your playmate.
  • Contacts integration: The Contacts app will display your friends' Gamer Center profiles. See what games they're playing and what they've achieved with just a few taps.

Matter Support:

Matter is a new smart home connectivity standard that allows compatible accessories to work seamlessly across platforms. Matter, which will allow users to choose from a wider range of compatible smart home accessories and control them using the Home app and Siri on Apple devices, is not expected until later this year.


For iPadOS 16, the focus feature will not be available in the first version of iPadOS 16. This feature will be able to filter notifications and notifications in official Apple apps such as Calendar, Mail, Safari, etc. event.

iCloud Shared Library:

A few days after announcing the release date of iOS 16, Apple said iCloud Shared Library will not be available when the first official release rolls out, likely due to delays on iPadOS 16 and macOS 13 Ventura . In addition, according to Bloomberg, Apple will delay the official release of iPadOS 16 and macOS 13 Ventura by one month.
