Whats New in iOS 16 Beta 5

On August 9th, Apple released the fifth beta of iOS 16 to developers for testing purposes, which brings some new small details, let’s take a deep dive into the new features in iOS 16 Beta 5!

Battery Percentage

In the latest iOS 16 Beta 5 version, users can reach the function page through “Settings – Battery” and choose whether to enable “Battery Percentage”. After the button is opened, the battery percentage number will be displayed in the battery icon in the upper right corner of the iPhone’s main interface.

The battery percentage feature is apparently not available on the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini, according to 9to5Mac.

Remove Siri Voice Shutdown

In the iOS 16 Beta 5 update, Apple canceled the iPhone Siri voice shutdown function, which has become a traditional reminder. You need to hold down the physical button and drag the on-screen slider.

Lock Screen Now Playing Visualizer

Beta 5 introduces a mini visualizer that appears in the top right corner of the music widget. But what’s even more exciting is that the visualizer matches the music being played, rather than just including a stalled icon.

Additionally, new animations have been added that appear whenever you press the play/pause, forward, and reverse playback controls within the widget. Another new feature is the ability to hide full-screen album artwork by simply tapping the image on the lock screen. Album artwork shrinks into the Now Playing widget, and you can restore it by simply clicking on the artwork in the widget.
