There’s nothing like an app that boosts productivity and communication, especially when it’s as fun and collaborative as Apple’s new tool.

Along with some other fun free games, iPhone users who upgrade to iOS 16.2 will now have a new utility app automatically installed on their devices. Freeform is an interactive sandbox whiteboard that can be shared effortlessly with friends, family or professional colleagues.

Read on to find out why we’re excited about this new tool from Apple. If you have already received the update, we recommend that you try it as soon as possible.

Why you and your friends should try Apple Freeform?

Apple Freeform was recently in beta testing, but is officially ready for public consumption. With iOS 16.2, Freeform is now a native iPhone app. Meaning all iPhone users will have it when they do their next update. What is Freeform, anyway, and why should you care?

Freeform is Apple’s take on a collaborative whiteboard app. It exists as a blank slate that can include external media like photos and even things like FaceTime calls.

You can, of course, stay free just from the app’s writing and drawing capabilities, of which there are many. You can whiteboard, sketch, and add typed sticky notes to your whiteboard, just like any co-author you invite to the festivities.

The possibilities here are endless. We can think of many ways to use Apple Freeform, including:

  • Moodboards for creative projects.
  • Brainstorming in a Zoom meeting.
  • Journalism, including tabloids.
  • Intercity icon.
  • Digital love notes to your loved one.

Whether you’re in the app and you’re doodling by yourself or using it as a larger canvas for a group chat, it’s perfect.
