The new UI for iOS 16 will allow users to quickly see the title and episode name of the video being streamed
Regardless of whether the pause button is visible, tapping on the center of the screen will temporarily freeze the video being viewed. Tap a second time to resume playback. In previous versions of the video controls, the user would have to tap once to bring up the controls and tap again on pause. This will no longer be necessary in iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 saving the user some time.
One tap will pause a video on the revised player for iOS 16
Apple also has removed a button that when tapped, would “fill display action.” With the revised UI for the video player, simply pinching in to zoom will fill the display with content. Since the revised video player no longer accepts double taps, such gestures no longer help users change how much of the screen is covered by the video being viewed.
Playback speeds can be changed with options from half speed to twice speed
Another change allows users to move a video forward or back by 10 seconds instead of the previous 15 seconds. And playback time can be changed in iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 by tapping on the three-dot menu. Options for playback speed range from 0.5x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, and 2x. Some third-party apps will allow users to customize any changes in playback speed options.
Currently in developer beta, iOS 16 probably won’t be disseminated to the general public until September.
