Apple rolled out a minor update for iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, and other devices back in March, with new emoji and new features for web apps. There’s now another upgrade rolling out.

First up is iOS 16.5, which is now available for supported iPhone models. It includes a new sports tab in Apple News, as well as My Sports score and schedule cards. There’s also a new Pride Celebration wallpaper for the Lock Screen, since we’re only a few days away from the start of LGBTQ+ Pride Month. Apple announced a new Pride Edition Sport Band for the Apple Watch earlier this month, which matches the wallpaper in this update.
