Apple releases iOS 16.4 with new emojis, web push notifications, voice isolation for calls & more
Apple today released iOS 16.4, a minor update that adds a handful of new features and bug fixes. Among the most notable new additions are support for web push notifications, a new emoji pack, and improved voice isolation for calls.
Web push notifications for iOS have been a long time coming, and they finally arrived with today’s release. With web push notifications, developers can now send push notifications to iOS users even when they’re not actively using their app. This is a huge boon for developers, as it opens up a whole new channel for engagement.
The new emoji pack includes over 200 new emojis, including a variety of skin tone options and new “profession” emojis. The new emojis are currently only available to developers, but they will be rolling out to all users in a future update.
Finally, iOS 16.4 includes improved voice isolation for calls. This new feature should help to reduce background noise on calls, making them clearer and more understandable.
Overall, iOS 16.4 is a solid update that adds some much-needed features and improvements. If you’re a developer, be sure to check out the new web push notification support. And if you’re just a regular user, the new emoji pack is sure to put a smile on your face.
