iOS 16 Redesigns Home App to Focus on Reliability and Ease of Use


iOS 16 Introduces Entirely Overhauled Home App to Focus More on Reliability and Ease of Use

With iOS 16, Apple promises a big redesign of the Home app, focusing on stability and convenience.

The “underlying architecture” of the Home app has been reworked by Apple to “allow faster, more dependable performance, especially for homes with many smart items.”


All of a user’s rooms are now displayed on a single page, with widgets that reflect the current condition of their accessories and their current location. A specialised space with further details and controls can be accessed by pressing the room’s name.

To make it easier for users, the Home app has a bar graph at the top that displays several statistics, such as how many lights are on, how warm or cool their home is, and which doors are unlocked.

Categories, on the other hand, become even more useful when they’re used. Users can view all of their home’s active cameras on a single page when they select a specific category, such as security and cameras.


Additionally, the Home app is getting new Lock Screen widgets that allow quick access to information. This fall, Apple will release iOS 16, which is currently available to developers.
