The popular iOS camera app, Halide Mark II now offers seven iOS 16 Lock Screen widgets, support for iPhone 14, higher megapixels and more.

Apple’s latest hardware and software updates have introduced new features and capabilities.

The camera system on the new iPhone 14 Pro lineup is upgraded to 48MP to capture high-resolution images with more details. Now, the Halide Mark II app released two new updates to support new capabilities for iOS users.
