Update 0.16: The boss update. A rather strange release frame with all versions releasing at a different time/day. 3 achievement could already be unlocked before the update came out. Then, Android update was first, due to it's beta status. Then Windows 10 and Windows phone got their release. Followed a couple of hours later by kindle fire and Gear VR. It took about a week before Apple approved the update and the update was released for Ios.

Now about the update. Like most other updates for Minecraft, this update also brings new features and items. Besides, this update made a few improvements to the gameplay and fixed some bugs. Most noticeably, the update added some new bosses. It is called the boss update after all. The update added the Wither, Elder Guardians and Guardians. The coolest of these 3 is I think the Wither. It is a rather tough creature to fight, as some of you might know from the console versions. The Wither on the MCPE and Windows 10 editions has some new attacks for you in mind. When he is down to 50% health, we won't fly as much anymore, and wither skeletons will spawn. To spawn him, you need 4 soul sand (can be mined in the nether) and 3 wither skeleton skulls (can be dropped by wither skeletons if killed). Place the 4 soul sand in a T-shape, and then place the 3 heads on top. After killing him, you can collect the newly added wither star, which you will need(along with some glass and some obsidian) to power your beacon. The Guardians and Elder Guardians can be found in the newly added Ocean Monuments. These monuments can be found deep inside the ocean. The monuments are made of newly added bricks: Prismarine, dark prismarine & prismarine bricks. If you manage to kill an elder guardian, he might drop a Prismarine shard, a prismarine crystal or a sponge; all of which are newly added items.

As shortly mentioned before, the new update also features the beacon. To create a beacon, you will need a lot of diamond, golden, iron and or emerald blocks. The smallest beacon is a 3x3 platform on top of a 5x5 platform. However, to fully power it, you will also need to add a 7x7 and a 9x9 platform underneath. These platforms can be made in any combination in the 4 above mentioned materials. On top of this 3x3 platform, you will need to place the beacon itself, crafted with 3 obsidian, 5 glass and 1 nether star.

Also this update has added achievements to all 4 pocket edition versions, and to the Windows 10 edition. There are a total of 9 achievements worth 250 Gamerscore.
The achievements involve both spawning and killing a wither.
- Killing an Elder guardian.
- Drying a wet sponge in a furnace.
- Fully powering a beacon
- Staying underwater for 2 consecutive minutes (use golden apples or water breathing potions)
- Cooking and eating rabbit meat.
- Eating a notch apple (created with 8 golden blocks and one apple)
- Powering a furnace with lava (find some lava and use an iron bucket on it. Then place the bucket in the furnace as fuel)

These achievements can be quite time consuming to set up in one of your own worlds, but (as for the other updates/achievements) there are plenty of useful worlds to be found on the site.

In Conclusion:

- Epic boss fight with the wither
- New underwater exploration features with ocean monuments
- Achievements, always a wise move by a developer.
- Beacons, might seem as a small feature, but can be very useful to find your house when lost.

- Not an all out release for platforms other than Android
- Some of the achievements unlockable before update actually came out.

In my opinion, the best update for a minecraft game to date.
