Aside from the new emojis, the update also comes with other features that improve the iPhone's overall performance.
One of these features is voice isolation for phone calls, which blocks out ambient noise during phone calls and prioritizes the user's voice. This results in clearer phone calls, especially in noisy environments.
This feature will undoubtedly be appreciated by people who frequently make phone calls in public places.
Another useful feature in the iOS 16.4 update is the notifications for web apps added to the Home Screen. Users can now receive push notifications from websites accessed through Safari just like apps downloaded from the App Store.
However, the websites must first be saved as a web app on one's Home Screen to enable push notifications. This feature will undoubtedly make it easier for users to stay up-to-date with their favorite websites.
There are several animals that can already be used, such as a moose, a donkey, a goose, a jellyfish, and a blackbird. Foods such as pea pods and ginger can also be purchased here.
There are also charming accessories such as a hair pick and a folding fan in addition to musical instruments such as a flute and maracas.

- Voice isolation for phone calls, which prioritizes one's voice and blocks out ambient noise around, resulting in clearer phone calls;
- Notifications for web apps added to Home Screen, which allows users to get notifications from websites being accessed on Safari à la App Store. The websites must be saved as a web app on one's Home Screen to enable push notifications;
