iOS 15 features

Apple announced some of the best iOS 15 features at the WWDC 2021 event earlier this year. FaceTime will come with features like spatial audio and call scheduling. Additionally, FaceTime will also be accessible on a browser on Google Android and Microsoft Windows devices. The spatial audio feature in FaceTime is designed to make the app "more natural, comfortable and lifelike." There’s also a new SharePlay feature coming to FaceTime, head on over to the link for more information.

Apple is also introducing many new iMessage features in iOS 15. You can now swipe through photos directly from the preview without it taking up the entirety of the screen. You will also be able to leave quick reactions to photos and view them in a grid. Users will also be able to pin a message thread. Additionally, iMessage will support new ways to share content with the new ‘Shared with You’ feature that is available in Apple News, Music, Photos, Safari, Podcasts, and the Apple TV app.

Alongside these iOS 15 features, Apple is tweaking notifications’ appearance for better visibility, which includes larger app icons. Notification Summary is a new system that will allow you to batch certain notifications together and view them in a single tile as opposed to a long string. The systemwide DND mode will now show an ‘away’ status, so a person sending an iMessage will know that the receiver won’t be notified immediately. Although there is an option to override this in the case of an emergency. Lastly, “Focus” profiles will allow users to prioritise which notifications they receive for a particular set of apps.
