Following the launch of the iPhone 13 series, Cupertino-based tech giant Apple has released its latest software iOS 15 and iPadOS 15.
The new OS comes with features like Focus Mode, Live Text, SharePlay and more for iPhone 6s and above users. Additionally, iPad OS 15 ships with home screen widgets for iPads, updates to FaceTime, and more.
FaceTime is very similar to Zoom in that it will now allow video call participants in grid view and its biggest benefit will be to add non-Apple users to FaceTime calls. Now users can also get an option to create FaceTime links to share and invite others to video chat.
With the launch of iOS 15, users who share the links, images, and other content in Messages will appear in a new Shared with you section.
iOS 15 comes with an interesting feature known as Live Text in Photos. This further allows users to copy numbers and text into an image. Live Text works in Photos, Screenshots, Safari, and in the Camera app.
In addition, Apple Maps has also received new features that allow users to view a wide range of elevation data, road colors and directions, 3D landmarks, and an improved night mode. Users can also pin nearby public transit stops and station information to their iPhone and Apple Watch devices, and receive automatic updates and notifications as they drive and approach the stop.
There is a new feature called Spotlight that shows users more information at a glance with new expanded search results for artists, entertainers, TV shows and movies, as well as your contacts.
