iOS 16.5 Sports Tab in Apple News
With the inclusion of a Sports tab in the News app on iOS 16.5, Apple will provide iPhone users with convenient access to news, scores, and schedules for their preferred teams and leagues, MacRumors suggested. While this information was previously accessible via the Today tab, it is now more prominently featured as Apple expands its focus on sports content across its various services.

This can be an extremely useful feature in all kinds of situations. It is an instant screen record Siri command on iPhones. You can command “Hey Siri, start a screen recording.” When you use this command, your iPhone’s screen will begin recording video of whatever is there automatically, and it will continue recording until you either turn it off by tapping the screen or activate Siri.

Individuals who have registered their accounts for Apple’s no-cost beta testing program can activate the beta version of the iOS 16.5 beta. MacRumors report suggests that it is expected that iOS 16.5 will be available to the public in May, and there is a chance that additional features may be included in subsequent beta releases.
