iPhone and iPad users will be able to upgrade to iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 on September 20 when Apple releases a new version of their operating system. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro versions will be available for purchase on September 12, just four days before their official debut. Apple unveiled the new iOS and iPadOS software versions at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, and developers and beta testers have been using early copies of both software versions since then.
Apple did mention the new iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 operating systems at the iPhone 13 announcement event, but it did not provide a release date for either. Later, however, the Apple website was modified to reflect that the event will take place on September 20. That is excellent news for individuals who have an ancient iPhone, even one as old as the iPhone 6s, and are still using it. Their iPhone is expected to function faster as a result of the upgrade, but the most fascinating aspect is that it will have a completely new appearance.
iOS 15 introduces a slew of new features and enhancements to the user experience. Notable additions include notification summaries, focus modes, live text, and the redesigned Safari browser, the design of which has recently been a source of controversy due to mixed reactions. When it comes to productivity, Apple is going all-in with the new iOS 15, which includes features like focus mode, which allows users to choose which applications and alerts should be sent at different times of the day. It is, in my opinion, a vital aspect for those who are attempting to balance their professional and personal life.
Due to the fact that I participated in beta testing and have been using iOS 15 for a while, I can tell you that live text is another feature that is likely to be quite useful in a variety of circumstances. When you look at something with text imprinted or even scribbled on it, you simply aim your iPhone camera at it, and the text reader will quickly allow you to mark up the information or simply pick everything and copy it to the clipboard. Furthermore, FaceTime enhancements include spatial audio support, grid view, portrait mode, and multiple mic settings to customize how you sound while you’re talking to someone on the other end of the line.
The most important feature, though, is SharePlay, which is an extension of the new FaceTime capabilities. People participating in a FaceTime conversation will be able to view a movie together, listen to music together, and even share their iPhone screen, just like they would during a group video conference. SharePlay will be compatible with the majority of video calling applications, as well as movie and music streaming apps, although that will not be available for several months — or even weeks — at the earliest. There is no chance you will be able to use SharePlay with the iOS 15 rollout because Apple just said that the feature will be available later this year.
iPadOS 15 will also increase your productivity on the iPad, which is necessary now more than ever because the iPad is becoming increasingly vital. Among the new features are an app library, resizable widgets, improved multitasking, and a new Split-Screen menu, which will be available with the next update.
