Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman revealed in the latest newsletter that Apple will release the official version of iOS 16.2 in mid-December, and the current iOS 16.2 beta and iPadOS 16.2 beta are also in the testing phase.
The most important changes in iOS 16.2 are currently known, and a new collaboration canvas function “Freeform” will be launched, which mainly allows teams to collaborate and discuss online. Anyone can add and edit images, videos, and URLs at will.

Apple Pencil can also be supported through iPadOS 16.
As for the official version update of iOS 16.2 will not be launched until mid-December, the main reason is that Apple has promised to launch five new features by the end of this year, including simulcasting and sharing games, Boundless Freeform App, front-of-stage scheduling of external monitors, iPhone satellite help, and A new classical music streaming service for Apple Music.
