iOS 15

Everything iOS 15

Release Date:

 

Apple

Every year, Apple hosts a livestream event to announce the release of new iPhones. Usually, the newest version of iOS is released to the public during the same week. Since the iPhone event will likely be on either September 7th or 14th, iOS 15 will probably be released to the public within one of those weeks. Here are some of the main features users will get with the update: 

App Redesigns & Quality of Life Improvements:

You'll find plenty of useful updates to the built-in apps you use every day. The weather app now has more visual details to help you understand the forecast, including down-to-the-minute precipitation information and maps. Other apps like Safari have been updated to include a more intuitive interface, making it easy to find what you need.

Notifications:

Notifications have been overhauled with new ways to see what's really important. Now, a notification summary that shows only the most relevant notifications will be presented to you on a daily basis. This can all be tweaked to your preferences. Regular notifcations have also been redesigned to be more visually appealing.

Focus:

Focus is a brand new feature that allows you to only allow certain notifications to come through based on what you're doing. If you're at work, you can opt to only receive work-related notifications. If you're relaxing at home, you may prefer to only let personal notifications come through. 

SharePlay & FaceTime:

Apple

Ever wanted to watch a show or listen to a song with a friend while you're on a FaceTime call? SharePlay allows users to share the same experience while on a FaceTime call. If you pause, skip ahead or change the song, you'll both see the same thing and still be able to hear each other speak.

There's still so much more! We're excited to see these features come to iPhone users. If you want to learn more about iOS 15, be sure to check out the linked articles below. That's where we got our information. Keep your eyes out for our newsletter every week for more fun, informative stuff!
