Last night, fans gathered to watch Apple's annual WWDC event to get the lowdown on what to expect from the tech giant. While there were many updates to get excited about, like the new MacBook Air and macOS Ventura, I had my eye on what's in store for the iPhone and iPad – and iOS 16 did not disappoint. The new operating system is packed full of brand new updates, including the much-longed for ability to customise your lock screen.

We've chosen five of our favourite, game-changing updates here, but there are tons of other innovations too, such as live captions on FaceTime and multi-stop journeys on Maps. Missed the event? Catch up with the rest of Apple's WWDC news on the Apple website (and then the best Apple deals, just in case).
