MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – Apple is increasing the security measures of the iPhone with its latest software update.
iOS 16.3 gives users the ability to use a physical security key for two-factor authentication.
Apple says that a physical key, which is an external device to authenticate the user’s account, strengthens the phone’s security against a hacker.
The software update also introduces new ways to use SOS Emergency calls. Users can now activate the feature by holding down the side button and the volume up or down button. Emergency SOS allows users to contact emergency services in areas with no reception.
There’s a new Unity wallpaper and support for the HomePod smart speaker.

Apple Mixed Reality Headset
Apple plans to add content from other companies and make some adjustments to its own Apple TV-plus shows. Everything is in preparation for a VR headset.
Apple is looking to collaborate with several companies, including Walt Disney, for its new mixed reality headsets. The headset is being developed with Sony, according to a report.
It will include external cameras for its augmented reality “pass-through” mode. The mixed reality device will be available this spring for $3,000.
AR/VR headsets have been in the works for years, according to various online reports, and will allow users to view their Mac screen with a physical keyboard, trackpad, and mouse.
