With the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 updates, new features have emerged for iPhones and iPads. While big changes are expected on the home screen in the iPad wing, the following features are on the way for iPhones:
Features of iPadOS 15 and iOS 15, which Apple will announce on June 7, have been revealed. Apple is working on updates that include the redesigned iPad home screen, updated lock screen, additional privacy protections, and different notification preferences, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports.
On iPads, widgets that are only available in today’s image column to the left of the screen can now be placed on the home screen. According to the information obtained, users will be able to use any widgeon on the home screen just like in iOS 14. Moreover, the entire page will be allowed to be filled with widgets.
With the iOS 15 update, it turns out that new features for iPhones are also on the way. So much so that with iOS 15, iPhone users are said to be able to customize their notification preferences based on their current situation. Accordingly, users who choose one of the categories with various situations such as “asleep”, “working” or “driving” will be able to determine whether the iPhone will make a sound if notifications come in. Users will be able to choose their current status from the refreshed lock screen or control center, or through Siri. Users will also have the option to automatically reply to messages, depending on their current status.
iOS 15 is also said to make significant improvements to the iMessage wing. Reports suggest that Apple is working to make iMessage act as a social network to compete with WhatsApp. But it’s unclear what features will be added to iMessage for now.
Finally, both iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 will reportedly have additional privacy protections, including a new menu showing which apps are quietly collecting data.
