Apple has commenced seeding the third beta of iOS 16 to developers for testing. The latest beta update is available for download via Apple’s website, and gives us a peek at what to expect when the public beta releases.
AFib History In Health App
iOS 16 will be getting an AFib History feature, which will track atrial fibrillation via the Apple Watch. It will check for how long the user is in atrial fibrillation and detect if they have irregular heart rhythms. The feature is now included in the Health app with iOS 16 beta 3.
Some users of iOS 16 beta 3 report that the iPhone has a Clownfish wallpaper option. Steve Job fanatics may remember seeing the wallpaper on the original iPhone when he showed it off in 2007.

Lockdown Mode is a new security feature coming to iOS 16 beta 3 which is aimed at users who could be subject to state-sponsored spyware and cyberattacks. This new mode is designed for a small subset of iPhone users that includes activists, journalists, whistle-blowers, and government employees.
This mode disables many iPhone features. For instance, calls from unknown people will be blocked. Attachments other than images will be blocked in Messages.
