Juli Clover for MacRumors:

In ‌iOS 16‌ beta 3, the AFib History section has been added to the Health app, and the AFib feature is activated in ‌watchOS 9‌ beta 3. For now, AFib History is limited to those in the United States.

The third beta of ‌iOS 16‌ introduces support for iCloud Shared Photo Library, which is designed to make it easier for you to share photos with friends and family members.

Added as an extreme security measure, Lockdown Mode is available in ‌iOS 16‌, ‌iPadOS 16‌, and macOS Ventura. It is an optional security feature that is aimed at protecting a small number of high-profile users who are at risk of targeted cyberattacks from state-sponsored spyware.

The Lockdown Mode capability further hardens device defenses and strictly limits certain functionalities, sharply reducing the attack surface that could potentially be exploited by highly targeted mercenary spyware.

  1. I wish Apple had a toggle switch so I could turn off Apple’s political preaching. It’s never ending. It’s been pride month for three years. At some point people just need to get away from all the endless virtues signaling. We constantly told we are such horrible people in the US, but China, Middle East etc get passes, not a peep. Apple is the absolute worst hypocrite.
