However, not all of the iOS 16 features are universally loved. eg fileAnd the image of pop-ups is quickly distorted.
Fortunately, most of these iOS 16 settings can be completely disabled or removed.
I’ll walk you through to “fix” the most unpleasant new iOS 16 features. And while you’re here, make sure of itand polished . If you haven’t done it yet, here’s how to do it: On (After 2017).
Remove the new search button from the home screen of your iPhone
iPhone Search lets you quickly find a third-party text message, app, file, note, or website — pretty much anything on your device or on the web. As you know, to get the search bar, swipe down anywhere on the screen and it will appear.
With iOS 16, Apple is adding another way to access Search from the Home screen, via a small button right above the dock.
However, it’s easy to accidentally activate the new search button, as it’s close to where your thumb might go when scrolling between your different home pages.
But, like many new features in iOS 16, you can disable this setting. Just launch the Settings app, go to main screen and switch appear on the main screen To remove the search button from your home screen.
The search bubble should be gone, replaced with a few small dots representing your different home screens.
Stop Unexpected (and Embarrassing) Photo Popups on iPhone Screen
Apple’s AI helps you display your photos and videos in different places on your iPhone, as a reminder of family, couples, and vacations — but you might not always want your selfies to pop up unexpectedly, especially if they’re private, embarrassing, or inappropriate.
With iOS 16, you can now prevent featured photos, as well as curated groups known as Memories, from appearing in the Photos widgets on your home screen, the Search section, and For You in Photos.
Run a file to block these custom images Settings Apply, go to Pictures and switch Show featured content. Not all premium content will appear on your device, but it will only be available in your Photos and Albums library.
Avoid accidentally ending your phone calls
The power button on the side of your iPhone can help you quickly fall asleep and wake your device, but if you press it by mistake during a phone call, you will end your call prematurely. If this is something you have struggled with in the past, iOS 16 finally allows you to prevent this from happening.
In Settings, go to Accessibility > touch and switch Lock to end call To prevent the side button from ending your calls. If you accidentally press the side button, your screen will go to sleep, but you will still be on your phone without interruption.
Go back to using your old iPhone lock screen notifications
Apple’s latest redesign brings widgets, customizable fonts and colors, a wallpaper gallery, and a stylized date and time to the lock screen, as well as an overlooked change in notifications. Instead of appearing at the top of the lock screen, notifications now appear at the bottom, which you can then tap to go full screen.
However, not everyone will be pleased with this change. To go back to the way notifications looked on iOS 15, launch the Settings app and go to Ads > as show. You will then see three options:
- number: Notifications appear as a numbered number at the bottom of the screen.
- pile: Notifications appear in a pile at the bottom of the screen.
- Existing: Notifications appear all over the screen.
To go back to the old notification style, choose Existing Selection.
