The biggest change in the new iOS 16.2 beta update is the ability to turn off wallpapers and notifications for always-on display on iPhone 14 Pro models. Currently, the always-on display simply looks like a dimmed version of the lock screen. This change will not only allow users to potentially save more battery life, but also get rid of complaints from users who don’t like the look of the always-on display.

As per Apple’s release notes, the company has also fixed a few issues with the Freeform app, Health app, and HealthKit. Stage Manager’s external display support still has a known issue, which will likely be fixed in upcoming beta updates.

To update to the new beta, go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iPhone or iPad. If you don’t have your device enrolled in the beta program, you can register with the Apple Developer Center for $99/year or sign up for Apple’s public beta software program which is free.
