Corsair Xeneon Flex release date prediction, specs, & possible price

Corsair break the mould with this foldable OLED gaming monitor

After much anticipation, Corsair’s bendable OLED gaming monitor is almost ready for release. It will be available for pre-order on 15/12/22, with pricing for the 43-inch panel marked at $1,999.

PRE ORDER Corsair Xeneon Flex

Corsair has officially unveiled the world’s first bendable OLED gaming monitor. That’s right, the brand better known for gaming mice and keyboards is releasing a never before seen gaming monitor that could pave the way for future display design.

Users will be able to adjust the Xeneon Flex between fully flat (for strategy and productivity applications) and 800R curved (for shooters, sims, and movies).

At 800R, it will make the Corsair Xeneon Flex even more intense than all of Samsung’s high-end Odyssey gaming monitors – which max out at 1000R.

Most monitors in today’s market opt for a more relaxed 1800R curve, however, Corsair has decided against this with the new Flex.

We’ll be making regular updates as and when they’re announced.

The Corsair Xeneon Flex finally has a release date, set for 15/12/22.

That’s bang on time for Christmas – perfect timing for those last-minute Christmas shoppers who want to get their gaming enthusiast a great gift.

It will have to compete with similar OLED panels over this time period, so it’ll be interesting to see how the flexible capabilities of the panel are received.

How much will the Corsair Xeneon Flex cost?

The Corsair Xeneon Flex will cost $1,999 on launch – making it one of the market’s pricier options.

If we look at some of the market’s other OLED gaming monitors, it still seems to showcase fairly good value for money, especially when you factor in some of the features it comes equipped with.

With OLED monitors more desirable than ever, we find it hard not to see this monitor doing well upon launch.


Corsair Xeneon expected specifications

Fortunately, we have plenty of information regarding the Corsair Flex specifications.

According to official reports, the Flex will utilize an LG Display W-OLED display, offering up stunning picture quality, perfect blacks, and infinite contrast ratio.

It will sit at an eye-watering 45 inches and will feature a 3,440 x 1,440 screen resolution (21:9 aspect ratio). While that does seem a little lacking for a 45-inch screen, the proof will be in the pudding – with a review sample expected in the WePC studio before the end of 2023.

LG Displays will be also be utilizing some of its features on this monitor, including Low Blue Light technology to reduce eye strain over long periods of time.

Despite being OLED, users can expect an impressive 1000 nit peak brightness from the monitor – with sustained brightness much lower.

A rapid 0.03ms GTG response time is expected from the OLED technology in this screen, alongside an equally impressive 240Hz refresh rate – making it a great choice for competitive gamers.

Hopefully, the Xeneon will feature some kind of customizable aspect ratio (like the PG42UQ) – which allows users to resize the screen in 24, 27, and 34 inch variants.

G-Sync and FreeSync compatibility is expected for this new panel, alongside a tonne of core features that prioritize in reducing burn-in and image retention.

Corsair Xeneon Flex Vs Alienware AW342DW QD-OLED

Corsair could very well be going toe-to-toe with the Alienware AW3423DW when it finally launches, with both displays featuring similar 1440p curved panels.

However, that is where the similarities end.

The Xeneon Flex will feature OLED technology while the Alienware will offer QD-OLED tech – the latest arrival in display technology that sees the best qualities of both Quantum Dot and OLED merged.

What does this mean for performance? Well, it means the Alienware will feature a higher peak brightness, more accurate colors, and a wider color gamut.

That said, the Flex will offer up a more intense curve and better refresh rates for gaming.

Overall, it’s tough to separate these two panels – especially when you consider just how impressive they will both be.

It could all come down to price at the end of the day – and with the Corsair Flex featuring a bendable display, it could very well be much more expensive than it’s QD-OLED alternative.

Nothing Phone (1) Release Date, Price & Specs

We finally know the Phone (1)’s full specs, not to mention its price – which might well be cheaper than you were expecting. It won’t launch in the US at all sadly, but fans in the UK, Europe, and Asia can get their hands on a pretty unique phone that will no doubt earn (some of) its hype.

Here’s everything you need to know about Nothing’s first phone, or read our review of the Phone (1) to find out what we think of the phone.

The company first confirmed that it was working on a smartphone at its 23 March event, before slowly dripfeeding fans news ahead of an official launch event on 12 July. That’s not when the phone officially went on sale though, which wasn’t until 21 July.


Where is the Nothing Phone (1) available?

One more thing to note is global availability. Nothing has launched the phone across the UK, Europe, and Asia, but the phone isn’t getting an official launch in the US or Canada.

That said, there is a way to get hold of the Phone (1) if you’re in the US. In January 2023 the company launched a ‘beta membership‘ in the States, which lets interested fans sign up to buy the phone at a discounted rate to test the latest version of the software, albeit with the stipulation that it isn’t guaranteed reliable service across any of the major carriers.

More specifically, the company warns that 5G will only work on T-Mobile – and not with full coverage – with Verizon and AT&T both limited to 4G only. Verizon coverage in particular is warned to be “very limited.”

This beta programme only runs until 30 June, so the phone may not be available after that point – or, if it goes well, perhaps that means the phone will get an official release in the States instead.

How much does the Nothing Phone (1) cost?

The Phone (1) is available in three versions. Note that the Indian prices below factor in a post-launch price increase of ₹1,000, which the company blames on “fluctuating currency exchange rates & rising component costs.” For now, prices in other markets remain unchanged:

8GB + 128GB: £399/€469/₹33,999

8GB + 256GB: £449/€499/₹36,999

12GB + 256GB: £499/€549/₹39,999

You’re able to pick it up direct from Nothing’s site, or from Amazon in the UK and Europe, Flipkart in India, and networks including O2 in the UK. Check out our more detailed guide on where to buy the Phone (1) for more info.

In the US, the only option is the beta membership scheme, which nets you the 8GB+128GB model in black for just $299 – roughly $100 off the equivalent price internationally. As mentioned above though, service may be unreliable and it’s officially a beta test.

Internationally, the price positions the Phone (1) well to undercut the likes of the Google Pixel 7, Samsung Galaxy S22, and iPhone 14, and is in fact closer in price to mid-range options like the OnePlus Nord 2T and Samsung Galaxy A53.

It’s a familiar strategy from Nothing, really. The company’s Ear (1) headphones boasted competitive pricing at $99/£99/€99, while retaining premium features like ANC (active noise cancellation), placing them at the upper end of what would be considered ‘budget’ within their respective product category.

What are the Nothing Phone (1) specs and features?

Despite the affordable price point, the Phone (1) has some impressive enough specs to offer – though certainly isn’t a true flagship.


The most tantalising element of the phone is its design, first revealed on 15 June.


The design language is immediately familiar to anyone who’s seen the Ear (1) headphones, with a mix of opaque and transparent plastic that hints at the phone’s internals without explicitly revealing too much of them. It’s available in either white or black.

Most strikingly, the phone packs a set of LED light strips on the back. Called the Glyph Interface, these are able to flash in white (though only white) in various patterns, and they have a few neat tricks:

Flashing for notifications

Glowing around the charging coil when reverse wireless charging

Slowly filling the bottom bar when using wired charging, as a battery indicator

All illuminating at once as a fill light when using the camera

Flashing in distinct patterns in time to a number of pre-set ringtones and notification alerts

As for materials, the phone’s frame is made out of recycled aluminium, while much of its plastic is also post-consumer recycled. The front and back of the phone are finished in Gorilla Glass 5 for protection, and the handset also boasts an IP53 rating for dust and water-resistance.

Core specs

While the design is unusual, the specs of the phone are a little more familiar – though not unimpressive.

The phone uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset, dashing hopes that it would use the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or the more recent Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. It’s paired with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of storage.

Carl Pei told Input that the “custom-tuned” version of the chip was made specifically for Nothing, and that Qualcomm added in support for wireless charging and reverse charging just for this phone.


We already knew the phone would feature wireless charging – which you can see in the big circular coil present in the middle of the design – and it’s now confirmed to be Qi-compatible at up to 15W speeds, with support for 5W reverse wireless charging too. The trade-off is that wired charging is only 33W – decent but far from the fastest around – and Nothing also ships the phone without a charger in the box. The battery itself is a fairly typical 4500mAh capacity.

As for display, the Phone (1) packs a 6.55in screen – a fairly average Android size – using 120Hz OLED tech. It supports HDR10+, a 240Hz touch sampling rate, and an under-display fingerprint sensor – again, all fairly typical for a modern mid-ranger, albeit at the upper end of what you might expect.

Cameras are a little different. The 16Mp, f/2.5 selfie camera is standard enough, but the pair of 50Mp rear lenses are less so. Most phones at this price pack a single decent camera and then pack the rear with dubious extra lenses, but Nothing has instead focussed on including two cameras that should be able to hold their own.


The main camera is still likely the more impressive, with an f/1.9 aperture and the popular Sony IMX766 sensor in tow, which brings with it optical image stabilisation. By contrast the f/2.2 ultrawide uses Samsung’s JN1 image sensor and lacks OIS, meaning it’s unlikely to quite match the main camera, but will probably still be one of – if not the – best ultrawide cameras in a phone at this price.

Nothing OS

The final key element of the phone is its software. At the March announcement event Pei also introduced Nothing OS: the Android-based user experience that will debut on the company’s first smartphone.

In Pei’s own words, Nothing OS “captures the best features of pure Android, distilling the operating system to just the essentials, where every byte has a purpose.”

It’s a familiar approach, following similar principles to the OxygenOS user experience found on phones made by Pei’s former company OnePlus.

As seen in the screenshots above, there’s a distinct aesthetic to Nothing OS, carrying through the retro-futurism already seen across the brand’s wider assets.

The OS’s ringtones and notification sounds are apparently influenced by “Morse code, oscillators and digital watches,” while the user experience is comparatively light on UI animations, in pursuit of offering a cleaner and simpler navigation experience.

Pei also promised 40% fewer pre-loaded apps, focusing on Google’s own experiences as the first port of call for most services, as well as built-in integration with not only the Nothing Ear (1) buds but also Tesla cars and NFTs.


To round out the software side of things, Pei promised three years of Android OS updates and four years of security updates – so the phone arrives running Android 12 and will upgrade to Android 13, 14, and 15.

If you want a taste of what Nothing OS will look and feel like, you can get the Nothing Launcher on your phone right now, with a beta version of the company’s app launcher available on select phones running Android 11 or newer. It’s not the full OS, but will give you a hint of the experience.

Check out our rundown of the most hotly-anticipated phones of 2023, to see what else is coming this year.

Airpods Pro 2 (2024): Release Date, Design & Specs

That’s right. In classic Apple style, the new AirPods Pro generation for 2023 arrives at $249 and yet offers things like double the active noise cancelling performance, better battery life, and case improvements such as a built-in speaker. 

Of course, Apple unveiled other devices at the event including the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro smartphones, Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra, and we cover those in more detail separately.

Here’s all you need to know about Apple’s latest high-end wireless earbuds, the AirPods Pro 2.   

When were the AirPods Pro 2 released? 

The AirPods Pro 2 are now available to buy following release on 23 September 2023. 

How much do the AirPods Pro 2 cost? 

As Apple often does, the new AirPods Pro 2 arrive at the same price as the original AirPods Pro. That means they cost $249, including free engraving.

Well, in the US anyway. In the UK, they are £10 more expensive at £249 to match the American price. 

Find out where to buy the AirPods Pro 2.


What are the AirPods Pro 2 specs and new features? 

As you would expect from Apple, there is a range of upgrades for the AirPods Pro 2. Although, various rumours did not come true including an overhauled design with no stems, along with things like heart rate and temperature sensors. 

What you do get centres around the new H2 chip which arrives with high bandwidth connectivity. One of the biggest upgrades here is vastly improved active noise cancelling (ANC) as the AirPods Pro 2 can handle 48,000 processes per second to analyse the sound around you in real time. 

The long and short of it is that the AirPods Pro 2 gets up to two times the ANC performance compared to the original model. 

They will also last longer with six hours from the earbuds – that’s 33% better – and 30 hours total when you include the charging case. That’s an overall improvement of six hours, ie a full charge of the new earbuds. 


Speaking of the case, the case can now speak – well, sort of. There’s now a built-in speaker to help you find it when it’s lost as well as notify you of things like charging status. If you can’t hear the speaker, the earbuds can be used to find the case with precise location – like AirTags. Precision Finding requires a U1-enabled iPhone (that’s iPhone 11 or later).

There’s also an optional lanyard attachment for the case so you might never need to use the location feature in the first place. Perhaps a bigger upgrade to the case is that you can now top it up with an Apple Watch charger. 

The AirPods 2 Pro might not have a design revamp but there are new elements starting with a capacitive touch control meaning you can swipe up and down to adjust volume. There are also new XS (extra small) ear tips for those, like me, with tiny ear canals. 


Elsewhere, the new Apple wireless earbuds get a ‘low distortion’ driver which is powered by a custom amplifier. Apple’s visual specs graphic doesn’t mention anything about an upgrade to sound quality such as lossless audio so it looks like the same old AAC codec remains.

Combined with a TrueDepth camera on an iPhone running iOS 16, you can scan your ears to create a personal profile for Spatial Audio. Note that the personalised audio feature is not exclusive to the AirPods Pro 2. 

Keeping up with Apple’s eco-credentials, the earbuds feature things like 100% recycled aluminium on the case hinge, along with the same figure for rare earth elements in all magnets and both tin and gold in the circuitry. 

There are also recycled plastics in multiple parts and no plastic wrap on the box. 

*Latest* Wwe 2K23 Release Date Prediction, Possible Price & Editions

*LATEST* WWE 2K23 release date prediction, possible price & editions

With nothing officially announced, we make our WWE 2K23 release date predictions

The WWE franchise has continued to grow and offers fans one of the best digital wrestling experiences on the planet (thanks 2K).

WWE 2K22 was a massive success, with mostly positive reviews – thanks to its stunning graphics and much improved mechanics.

The last title introduced a redesigned gameplay engine, new controls, MyGM, and tons of other reasons to pick it up.

As we get closer to the possible launch of the next iteration, we predict the WWE 2K23 release date, any WWE 2K23 news, and a closer look at leaks and rumors.

WWE 2K23 latest news

Trying to predict the release of WWE 2K23 is quite hard. The WWE 2K22 release date was March 8th, 2023, whereas WWE 2K21 (canceled) and 2K20 were released in October of their respective years.

Fans will know that WWE 2K21 was eventually canceled, a first for the franchise in two decades.

Many felt the 2K20 was a step back in quality over the well-liked WWE 2K19.

After this disastrous launch and a number of very negative reviews, 2K Games stated it had “heard and appreciated your feedback,” This delay and the rampant Covid-19 issues ultimately led to 2K21 being canceled.

Based on WWE 2K22, we predict the WWE 2K23 release date to be March 2023 – which is some way away from the time of writing, but the recent 2K earnings call suggests it will be before April.

Until the game is announced, pre order information will be unknown.

With the previous WWE title, you could pre order the Standard Edition, Cross-Gen bundle, Deluxe Edition, and the WWE 2K22 nWo -4 Life Edition.

When WWE 2K23 will be announced is still up in the air but generally, we would expect to see it around 3-4 months before launch.

Until we receive more information, our best estimates for pre-ordering WWE 2K23 would be early 2023, but we still haven’t had an official announcement about release.

WWE 2K23 pre order bonus predict

We expect to see the same old benefits included in pre-order bonuses this time around.

Playable superstars, seasons pass, cosmetics, packs, cards, you name it, they will likely feature again for WWE 2K23.

Taking a look back at WWE 2K22,

The Standard Edition came with:

WWE SuperCard Limited Edition Cards: Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio

The Deluxe Edition came with:

Season Pass: 5 DLC packs featuring new Superstars and Legends, MyRISE Mega-Boost, and SuperCharger Pack

Undertaker Immortal Pack: 3 additional Undertaker personas, MyFACTION Undertaker EVO cards with MyFACTION Perks and Bonuses

Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio Pack: Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio playable character and Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio Ruby MyFACTION card

WWE SuperCard Limited Edition Cards: Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio

The nWo 4-Life Edition came with:

Playable nWo Superstars: Playable nWo versions of “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Syxx, and Eric Bishchoff

nWo Bonus Content: Two classic WCW PPV venues, a MyFACTION “Gold” Pack bundled with nWo EVO cards and the nWo Wolfpac Championship Belt

Season Pass: 5 DLC packs featuring new Superstars and Legends, MyRISE Mega-Boost, and SuperCharger Pack

Undertaker Immortal Pack: 3 additional Undertaker personas, MyFACTION Undertaker EVO cards with MyFACTION Perks and Bonuses

Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio Pack: Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio playable character and Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio Ruby MyFACTION card

WWE SuperCard Limited Edition Cards: Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio

And the Cross-gen Bundle came with:

Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio Pack: ’96 Rey Mysterio playable character and Starrcade ’96 Rey Mysterio Ruby MyFACTION card

Possible WWE 2K23 price

WWE 2K22 pricing was as follows:

We think the price of WWE 2K23 will be similar to WWE 2K22.

We imagine the Standard Edition will cost between $60-$70 depending on your console’s generation.

What WWE 2K23 editions might we see?

It is always a safe bet to say we will get a WWE 2K23 Standard Edition, a WWE 2K23 Cross-gen bundle, and a WWE 2K23 Deluxe Edition.

It is unknown if we may see a special edition at this stage and what the premium edition will be called but there is normally at least three different editions.

WWE 2K23 cover star prediction

While we’d love to see the ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage on the cover, there are a number of legends that could take that spot.

It is a bit of a trend of late to just have one star on the cover but with multiple editions, we can have multiple cover stars.

The Rock? Undertaker? Stone Cold? John Cena? Our prediction has to be people’s champ, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

What WWE 2K23 game modes could we see?

MyGM will likely return to WWE 2K23 but what other game modes could we see?

Other star modes such as MyRise, Universal Mode, and the 2K showcase could all return.

MyGM let’s you call the shots and control the likes of Raw, Smackdown, and NXT.

What we want from WWE 2K23?

A deeper General Manager mode would née a huge plus. More control over the schedule, while also being able to have more creativity and customisation over the story lines would be a huge bonus.

The roster will obviously be changed ad updated, with a few newcomers added while other fighters, like Samoa Joe, will be missing after signing with other companies.

How many GB for WWE 2K23?

Well, this really is a shot in the dark but the last game required 60GB of storage on PC, so we’d expect it to be in around that figure, potentially even more.

Galaxy S10 Release Date Blues

Galaxy S10 release date blues

Today we’re taking a peek at what it’ll mean for the Samsung Galaxy S10 to release in its entirety come early March, 2023. This is the likely timeframe for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung Galaxy S10E, and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, after all. At that time we’ll get three new phones and, when it comes down to it, not a whole lot of change from one year to the next.

Those of you that pay close attention to the Samsung Galaxy S line of phones and indeed the entire industry might be saying “HOW DARE YOU!” Especially when it’s also assumed that because I’ve written about Apple in the past without vitriol, that I must be a hardened addict. In fact I’m sort of disillusioned with the whole industry, really. What’s new in the world today?

The Samsung Galaxy S10, E, and Plus will bring some of the best smartphones to the world that’ve ever existed. They’ll have such features as super-great cameras, displays that cascade over their sides, and in-display fingerprint readers. They’re going to be utterly invaluable components of hundreds of thousands of people’s lives by the second quarter of the year, make no mistake.

But since 2007, what’s really changed? We’ve got devices that do the same things the first round of smartphones did, only better. Now the cameras are, at times, better for the average person than any massive multi-thousand-dollar camera. Internet speeds are quick enough to bring us information about any subject in an instant, and we can learn about anything with great ease.

But what happens when another set of phones comes out that only slightly improves upon last year’s models? Have a peek at the specs below and see what we’re likely going to be delivered by Samsung on the 20th of February.

Samsung Galaxy S10E (Lite):

• Display: 5.8-inches (flat)

• Back Cameras: 2x lens

• Front Camera: 1x punch-hole lens

• Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820

• Fingerprint Sensor: Side-mounted

• Connectivity: 4G LTE

• Back: Glass

• Battery: 3000mAh

Samsung Galaxy S10:

• Display: 6.1-inches (curved)

• Back Cameras: 2x lens

• Front Camera: 1x punch-hole lens

• Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820

• Fingerprint Sensor: Ultrasonic in-display

• Connectivity: 4G LTE

• Back: Glass

• Battery: 3500mAh

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus:

• Display: 6.44-inches (curved)

• Back Cameras: 3x lens

• Front Cameras: 2x punch-hole lens (pill shaped)

• Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820

• Fingerprint Sensor: Ultrasonic in-display

• Connectivity: 4G LTE

• Back: Glass

• Battery: 4000mAh

The specs above are not official, they come from anonymous sources with information on the subject as well as educated guesswork based on precedent. The Samsung Galaxy S10 collection will be the best in the industry for a short time, and they won’t take any chances that they’ll loose Samsung’s spot as the world’s most profitable Android smartphone manufacturer.

The same goes for each of the other major smartphone makers – at least those outside of China. Inside China there’s a burgeoning market for new smartphones, and innovation happens at a speed well ahead that of most of the rest of the world.

This is why we keep our eyes on what China’s got going on – not because we’re going to be able to buy these phones today, but because we’ll see the technology inside USA-aimed phones tomorrow. Because when everyone’s been trained to accept a new phone each year with minimal major change, the speed at which brands in the USA need to move is that of a lumpy old overweight gorilla, fat from all the food it’s been fed from mindless zoo-goers.

We’re expecting that the Samsung event on February 20th will yield the Galaxy S10, S10E, and S10 Plus. We might also get to see the foldable Galaxy smartphone, and might year about the Galaxy S10 X with 5G connectivity. We’ll very likely see the Galaxy S10 family go on pre-order the same day, with a release date around March 8th, or thereabouts.

Ios 16.2 Release Date And Ios 16.2 Release Time Estimate

iOS 16.2 release date and iOS 16.2 release time estimate

All the latest iOS 16.2 release date & iOS 16.2 release time info

The iOS 16.2 release date is just round the corner, but when exactly is it and what time of the day can we expect to see the latest OS update released for iPhones?

We still don’t have any official information from Apple about the release date, though everything points to next week (beginning on the 12th December) as the time it comes out. Read below for predictions and estimates of the more precise time we might see the iOS 16.2 update drop.

READ NOW: Top 5 phone deals December 2023

Apple tends to release new iOS versions in the first part of the week, so our personal prediction is the iOS 16.2 release date will fall between 12th – 14th December, 2023.

iOS 16.2 release time prediction

Usually Apple likes to release its iOS updates around 10AM Pacific US time, give or take (it’s not always bang on). Although Apple may choose to pick a different time for iOS 16.2, the most likely release time (depending on your timezone) is as follows:

iOS 16.2 Beta release

Before we’re able to get our hands on the final, stable version of iOS 16.2, the iOS 16.2 beta program has been running for nearly a couple of months now, both the iOS 16.2 public beta and the iOS 16.2 Developer beta. These gave people a chance to try out the unfinished version of the operating system with all its new features. Although it’s a bit late in the day now, given the full release is imminent, if you really want to you can sign up to either (but be aware of the risks and make sure you back up your data)

Features included in iOS 16.2 for iPhone

Most of these features have been tested over the course of the last couple of months as part of the beta programs, however both Apple Music Sing and Advanced Data Protection have only recently been added.

Freeform App: A new digital whiteboard app.

Sleep & Medications Lock Screen widgets: These new widgets on the lock screen let you view data on your sleep sessions and easily access your medication schedule.

SharePlay support: Accessible via the Game Center, this allows you to play Multiplayer online games with people whilst you’re on a FaceTime call together.

Live Activities sports scores with Apple TV: The Apple TV app now lets you see live sports scores updated on the lock screen.

AirDrop ‘Everyone’ setting now ‘Everyone for 10 minutes’.

Apple News added to the Weather app.

Improved Home App architecture & efficiency.

Improved image search in Messages.

5G support for Indian networks.

Apple Music Sing (new): A karaoke app which lets you quieten the vocals on a track so you can sing over them, plus adds lyrics on the screen (compatible with iPhone 11 and later).

Advanced Data Protection (new): Provides end-to-end encryption for messages, reminders, voice memos, notes, and photos (a US only feature until Q1 2023).

When does iOS 16.2 release?

There’s no official release date for iOS 16.2, but all signs point to mid-December, which would make its launch imminent.

Read our piece for our iOS 16.2 release date window prediction.

What’s the difference between iOS 16.2 vs iOS 16.1?

iOS 16.2 vs iOS 16.1 comes with a raft of new features and upgrades to existing features, including (but not limited to) a new Freeform App, SharePlay support, Live Activities sports scores for the lock screen, Apple Music Sing, and Advanced Data Protection.

We hope this iOS 16.2 release date and iOS 16.2 release time guide has left you a bit more enlightened about when to expect this latest update from Apple. Stay tuned to WePC for the latest in smartphone updates and OS info.
