IPHONE fans are still discovering some of the new tricks they can do on iOS 16.

Just make sure you've upgraded to iOS 16, it's free after all.

Once you've got it, try my must-know hacks below.

You can now customise it more than ever before, with a photo shuffle of your favourite images, filters, and even a change of font and look for the clock.

It's possible to make the clock blend into your image as well, which looks really neat.

So you could have the calendar or Facebook notifications kept there, for example.

The update you’ll notice straight away is to your iPhone’s lock screen.

Notifications are now at the bottom and you can see the progress of your food delivery with Live Activities – all without having to unlock your iPhone.

To set yours up, just tap and hold the lock screen, then select Customise.

Greater control over messages

Apple is hoping to take a grab a slice of WhatsApp's success with some big changes to iMessage.

You can now edit messages and even unsend entire messages – which could save you from embarrassing moments or something you regret saying.

But it comes with some huge caveats.

First of all, you only get 15 minutes to do it – after that it's permanent.

And crucially, the recipient needs to have iOS 16 installed too.

So if you've messaged someone with an Android device it won't work.

Better focusing

The focus mode is more refined with more filters you can use to stop notifications on apps.
