Apple iOS 15 is now available to download
Updates to Apple iOS 15:
Users will have more control over push alerts and can only allow notifications from a selected application and people if one of the new Focus modes is activated.
San Francisco: Apple’s technology giant is now rolling out iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8 and TVOS 15 for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. Users may not immediately see the updates, but they will have access to a bunch of more features when they are available, Engadget reports.
On both iPhone and iPad, Facetime and Messages have been upgraded. Facetime supports space audio and reduces background noise, while people are able to join Facetime calls via web and Android links.
The report said that it will be easier to track the things your friends and family share to you through special tabs in the news, music, TV and podcasts apps.
Notifications were also revised. Users will have more control over push alerts and can only allow notifications from select applications and people when activating one of the new Focus modes.
On iPad, Quick notes are a system-wide feature now – just swipe from the bottom right corner to pick up thoughts with the keyboard or the Apple Pencil, the report says.
The SharePlay functionality is one thing iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 don’t have at the launch. You can share your screen with Facetime and enjoy movies, shows and music with friends.
Apple is also adding the child safety features it plans to release on the back burner as part of iOS 15, while it improves. The update to watchOS 8 may not be as extensive. There is a greater focus on attention and health, including new categories of training.
Apple Watch now has deeper iPhone integration, features such as the Focus mode support and the Contacts application. You can expect portrait viewing faces and multiple timers as well. You will be able to install iOS 15 if you have an iPhone 6 or higher, iPhone SE or seventh-gen iPod touch.
Apple tablets can operate iPadOS 15 on iPads 5-generation, later iPad mini 4 and later, iPad Air 2 and subsequently on all iPad Pro devices. In the meantime, Apple Watch Series 3 and later devices support watchOS 8.
