The great absence of iOS 16.5 will make us wait until iOS 16.6 or iOS 17

This was one of the most interesting features of iOS 16.5 but finally Apple has not included it in the final version of the iPhone update.

iOS 16.5 is now available, but it comes without one of the most interesting features

Apple officially released iOS 16.5 just a few days ago and we have taken a function that has not finally arrived despite the fact that it was included in the betas of the update. This feature will have to wait, probably until iOS 16.6 (which has already been released in beta form) or perhaps until iOS 17, which is released in just a few weeks.

Apple was testing new Siri commands to instantly record iPhone screen in iOS 16.5, but removed this feature from the public version of the system without explanation. For now, we have to keep doing it manually and Siri won’t be able to record the screen until future updates.

We still can’t record iPhone screen with voice alone

Recording the screen of an iPhone or iPad is quite simple and useful, we just have to slide the Control Center and click on the button with a circle. You can record iPhone screen even with your own voice in the background, however the process is still 100% manual.

Siri is capable of quite a few things, including taking iPhone or iPad screenshots just by asking. Apple had devised that as of iOS 16.5 the assistant was also able to start and end a screen recording of the device just by saying the corresponding commands:

  • “Hey Siri, start recording your screen.”
  • “Hey Siri, stop recording the screen.”
The crooks would try to engage in a conversation with Siri for the purpose of obtaining information about your personal data

Siri still not able to record iPhone screen

However, this feature seems to have been delayed for no apparent reason since it worked quite well. What’s more, in the first beta of iOS 16.6 this function is not active either. This does not appear to be a difficult feature to implement on the surface, although during testing many complained that it only worked when you spoke the exact phrase to be used.

Apple’s assistant is capable of more things than many think. Siri can send WhatsApp messages and has lots of really cool commands. But it clearly needs to improve. It is said that Apple would already be developing its own artificial intelligence such as ChatGPT for Siri, although if true, it is not likely that we will see anything new until iOS 17, which should be presented in just a few weeks at WWDC 2023.
