A number of important features that Apple maneuvered on during the WWDC 2021 event are not available on current versions of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, for example sharePlay’s ability to share streaming video and music with FaceTime audiences will not be available until an uncertain time this fall, while universal Control’s attractive feature to use a crackpad between iPad and MacBook is still not even available to the version. Beta has also not been launched.
Smarter iPhone: Siri offline and Live Text
One of the most appealing features of iOS 15 is the Smart Live Text feature, which allows you to extract text from the heart of the image if you point your iPhone or iPad at any text, whether handwriting or typing. The iPhone intelligently recognizes the nature of the text and provides you with a related feature that includes things like sending emails, calling, or displaying addresses on a map.
Note that the Live Text feature is only available on iPhones and iPads equipped with the A12 Bionic chip or higher .
Live Text capability is available throughout the operating system; You can access the “live text” option to extract text in the camera app, Photos, Safari browser or even in the boxes where you have to write something (text field), by long touching and calling the context menu. It is also possible to translate the text in the image from English, Chinese, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Another attractive feature is called Visual Look Up, which allows the device to collect more information about them by identifying the subject inside the photos; As such, you can get the species of dogs, the names of the flocks, or the famous landscapes by touching the image.
Spotlight, or system-level search in iOS 15, has seen improvements; Spotlight now provides richer information for searches such as artists, TV shows, or your audience. You can even search the photos inside the phone and the text in these photos with the help of Live Text.
Apple’s digital assistant Siri now processes all sounds exclusively on the device with the new version of iOS and iPadOS, which increases the security and speed of interaction with Siri on paper. For the first time, Apple Digital Assistant also supports offline voice commands; Of course, in offline mode, the performance of the garlic is more limited and includes things like setting a reminder or changing settings.
At the same time as iOS 15, Apple launched an advanced version of the iCloud service called iCloud +. In the new service, the new Hide My Email feature allows the user to create temporary email addresses, these addresses are forwarded to the user’s original email. iCloud + also allows you to connect an unlimited number of security cameras to the 2TB iCloud service plan.
The main feature of iCloud Plus is a VPN-like feature called Private Relay, which prevents your IP address, location and activity from being exposed by encrypting the output data and passing traffic through two relays; Of course, Private Relay only works in Safari browser environment and does not allow you to change the position; Therefore, it cannot be used to circumvent sanctions or filtering.
Note that Private Relay is not yet publicly available and will be disabled by default at public release.
New faces for safari
Another major change in iOS 15 compared to the previous generation has occurred in Safari. Apple’s proprietary browser is currently undergoing extensive design revisions on three platforms: iOS, iPadOS, and macOS; The visual changes are so extensive and, of course, marginal that Apple allows the user to disable a large number of them and return to the old form.
The Safari browser on the iPhone gives you the “tab bar” mode by default; This means that the address bar is now at the bottom of the page and you can swipe to switch between the safari tabs; Of course, if the new design is not to your liking, you will be able to return to the old solution through the Settings application.
Safari on the iPad also allows you to swipe on the address bar to switch between tabs, except that the address bar is on the top edge, and Apple calls it the “Compact Tab Bar.” Using the new address bar on the iPad is not as easy as on the iPhone, so by default, Apple provides Safari with the same form as before or the “Separate Tab Bar”.
The new version of Safari offers a feature called Tab Group, and as the name implies, allows you to avoid clutter by categorizing websites. These categories are synced across all devices in your iCloud account. The new Safari also allows you to install add-ons.
Focus modes to increase productivity and better focus
Focus modes are more advanced versions of Do Not Disturb mode, which allows specific apps or audiences to access you only at set times. Focus modes are intelligently activated at specific times or locations, each of which has a unique layout for the home screen of the user interface.
For example, if you create a Focus mode for your non-working hours, by activating it you can turn off notifications related to work applications such as Microsoft Messenger and work email, or with another mode for working hours, you can get notifications from apps like Twitter and Twitter. Telegram prevented.
Apple’s new Focus modes allow apps to display high-sensitivity emergency alerts to the user no matter which Focus mode is enabled; For example, one of these emergency announcements could be a suspicious withdrawal from a bank account.
Apple applies Focus modes to all devices connected to your Apple ID account; Therefore, the notification behavior in MacBook will not be different from iPhone or iPad.
More efficient face time
Leaving aside the attractive and unpublished feature of SharePlay for sharing video and music streams with FaceTime audiences, the most important new feature of FaceTime is the ability to create links for Facebook contacts and send them to Windows and Android users. These people can join FaceTime calls through the browser.
Other changes include the ability to display the grid-view of the audience in group video calls, the use of portrait mode to create a background in video calls, Spatial audio to play the voice of each contact in group calls from the direction that his face is on the screen Mentioned, Voice Isolation for eliminating ambient sounds and Wide Spectrum for transparent transmission of personal and ambient sound.
IPadOS 15-specific feature: Easier window management
The new version of iPadOS also undergoes changes to its multitasking system that make it easier to use. A simple multitasking menu is now available for the user to easily view multi-window apps or convert an app to a floating window. A menu called “shelf” has also been added, which shows the open windows of each app.
Unfortunately, it is still not possible to display more than two windows side by side; For example, you can not occupy half of the screen with one iPad and the second half with two apps, instead, the third window can only be accessed in hover mode.
IPadOS 15 Exclusive Feature: Faster note-taking
The Notes app now offers a new feature called Quick Note for quick note-taking; All you have to do is swipe up from the top corner of the screen to bring up a small window to write your notes.
IPadOS 15 Feature: One keyboard and trackpad for two devices
Universal Control was one of the most exciting features Apple unveiled for the iPadOS 15 during WWDC 2021. With this feature, you can use the iPad and Mac together with a trackpad and keyboard, or transfer desired information such as photos and text by dragging and dropping from one device to another. Unfortunately, Universal Control is not yet available.
IPadOS 15 Exclusive Feature: Widgets and App Library
With iPadOS 15, iPad users will finally be able to intelligently categorize apps or the App Library and add a widget to custom app pages with a one-year delay compared to iPhone users; Of course, full interaction with widgets is still not possible. Compared to the iPhone, Apple engineers have added a very large 2.4-inch widget to the iPad that covers one-third of the screen; Unfortunately, the app layout has been reduced from 5.6 to 6.4.
Aside from the positive changes that the iPadOS 15 is experiencing, there are some drawbacks to it; The operating system, which is supposed to be a replacement for computers, should be as versatile as macOS. Unfortunately, we have to remind you that there is no calculator and weather app in iPadOS 15 either!
Other common features
The Apple Map service provides an attractive 3D view with lots of details such as trees, stairs, and uneven intersections; But this feature is currently in the early stages of development, and when iOS 15 is released, it only supports the cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and London. We will not see.
The new version of Apple Map also offers features such as augmented reality-based positioning and more accurate positioning with the help of new 3D maps. Note that augmented reality-based positioning is only available on iPhones and iPads equipped with the A12 Bionic chip or higher.
Apple’s proprietary weather app has also changed with the acquisition of the Dark Sky weather app development team by Cupertino residents. Gradient bar charts for temperature display, new announcements for predicting rainfall in the coming hours, new temperature maps and new animations for lightning or rain are some of the changes in the weather app.
Notes and Reminders apps have smart tagging systems and folders in their bellies that make it easier to search for notes and reminders.
With the update of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, you will also be able to choose clothes for your Memoji characters.
Apple has added a new section called Shared with You to a number of its apps, including Photos, Safari, Music, Podcasts, and Apple TV Plus. Links, photos, Apple music, podcasts, TV shows, or Apple News articles that your friends share with you will be displayed in the Shared with You section of those apps.
Note that the Shared with You feature will only be available for content submitted from Apple’s own services within the Messages software; For example, if someone shares a music playlist from Apple Music within WhatsApp or sends it to you from Spotify in Messages, it will not appear in the Shared with You section.
What do you think of Apple’s new updates? Can iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 revolutionize the iPhone and iPad experience?
