Apple has allegedly completed development of iOS 16 as it prepares for an anticipated iPhone 14 launch event on September 7. We’ve looked at some of the benefits the new mobile OS brings to enterprise professionals; what follows is a set of new features that should help you work more efficiently.

A quick note about the iPhone

You may already be familiar with Quick Note for iPad, but it’s also available on iPhone with iOS 16. It should be invaluable for quickly grabbing thoughts, URLs, images, and other items on the go.

First, go into the command center and edit it to add the new quick note switch (you only have to do this once). Once you’ve set things up, you can start a new quick note by tapping the icon in the command center. You can also share content directly in Quick Note from other apps like Safari – just tap Division and then select Add to Quick Note. What’s useful about these notes is that they automatically sync with all your other Apple devices signed into the same iCloud account. You can also lock notes using your iPhone passcode, which can be useful if it’s not completely secure.

Reminder later in Mail

Apple in iOS 16 introduces a new feature to remind you to check an urgent email again. To use this, swipe left on the email tap Later and then set the duration until you’re reminded of that email—in an hour, tonight, tomorrow, or on a schedule you’ve set. I really think this little feature is one of the best things about iOS 16, at least in terms of solving a problem that most of us already knew we had.

Rich links in email

We can finally add rich links in email. This allows you to put the URL in the body of the message, select it in the message, and then choose Convert to Rich Link in the context menu that appears. The recipient of the email will then see a rich link appear in their email, basically showing a preview of the page and just like you see in almost every other app you use today.

Do not send this email

It is possible to cancel the sending of emails, just as possible cancel sending messages in iOS 16. This doesn’t work by fetching your email from ether; instead, the practice consists of an automatic delay before the mail is sent. You can set this Delay in sending time in Settings>Mailwhere you will find the new Cancel the shipping delay thing. Set this to off (if you never make a mistake), 10, 20 and 30 seconds. Now you get that chance you need before you say the wrong thing while trying to close that critical deal.
