Apple iOS 15 will arrive soon. Let’s answer five of the biggest questions surrounding iOS 15 features and supported devices posed by used cell phone retailers and wholesalers.
1. When Will iOS 15 Be Released?
iOS 15 will be generally available in fall 2021. An iOS 15 beta program is currently available; anyone can use their Apple ID to sign up for the program. Apple also previewed the new version of its operating system at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 7, 2021.
2. What Features Will iOS 15 Include?
There is a lot to like about iOS 15. Here are some of the iOS 15 features that have already been announced.
Apple has already announced several FaceTime features for iOS 15, such as:
- SharePlay: Lets Apple device users share their screen to watch movies and TV shows, listen to music, and enjoy other interactive experiences with people around the world
- Spatial Audio: Ensures users’ voices sound like they’re coming from the direction in which each person is positioned on screen; this feature is designed to help conversations flow more naturally
- Grid View: Shows people on a FaceTime call in same-size tiles, so users can see exactly who is on the call at any time
- Portrait Mode: Blurs a user’s background and puts the focus exclusively on him or her
- Mute Alerts: Lets a user know when he or she is talking while muted
In iOS 15, content sent to a user via Messages automatically appears in a new “Shared with You” section in the corresponding app. This provides a user with convenient access to content in Photos, Safari, Apple News, Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and the Apple TV app.
iOS 15 users can take advantage of photo collections in Messages as well. This lets users organize photos as collections in their Messages conversations.
When customizing their Memoji in iOS 15, users can choose from over 40 outfits. They can also select a different color for their Memoji’s right and left eye and add multicolored headwear, heart, star, or retro glasses, and other accessories.
Focus is a new feature that lets a user automatically filter notifications based on what he or she is doing. For instance, a user can activate Focus mode and select “Do Not Disturb” to deactivate all notifications. Or a user can choose from a suggested Focus for work, personal time, sleep, fitness, gaming, reading, or driving.
iOS 15 offers a new look for notifications, with contact photos for people and large icons for apps. The OS enables a user to get a daily summary of notifications; this summary can be delivered in the morning or evening or customized based on a user’s preferences. It also allows a user to temporarily mute an app or messaging thread.
Drivers are sure to appreciate iOS 15’s new map, which helps users see traffic, incidents, and other details that can affect their drive. Also, iOS 15 offers a redesigned transit map that shows important bus routes and makes it easy to see and interact with a route with one hand. It even provides new place cards that help users find and interact with important information for businesses, get insights into cities, and learn about mountain ranges and other physical features.
Apple will let iOS 15 users customize their Safari start page. These users can set up and use Safari voice commands to search the web.
The new Live Text provides iOS 15 users with interactive text in photos. It allows these users to leverage copy and paste, lookup, translate, and other functions when they access their photos.
Live Text also enables iOS 15 users to swipe up or tap the information button on a photo to highlight recognized objects and scenes and learn more about them. So a user can select a photo that contains an image of a historic landmark. From here, he or she can get information about the landmark and learn more about it.
