So What’s Up With Apple’s Imminent IOS 15 Upgrade?


 While we'll have to wait until Tuesday morning to see if it's as exciting as Apple wants everyone to believe, there are definitely new changes in store with iOS 15.

Visually it's not a huge improvement, but in day-to-day activities, things like live text photo scanning and new focus are a plus.


So What’s Up With Apple’s Imminent IOS 15 Upgrade?

For a start, FaceTime brings you and your friends and family together in a new pandemic-friendly way, with the ability to watch movies or listen to tunes while on a call. There's also a new grid that will broadcast up to six people in a single call in a neat fashion that will make you think you're suddenly in The Brady Bunch intro.

You'll also be able to send a link for Android users and Windows laptops and Chromebooks. It's all like zoom...

Speaking of camera stuff, if the unit sees a text field an icon will pop up prompting you to "scan text". If you hit it the camera will activate and convert the text you target - such as a title, packet contents, etc. You can then copy and edit it.

Apple Wallet will also get a makeover, allowing you to unlock your car as well as your hotel room or home, as BMW prepares to ship automobiles with the feature later this year.

A new feature is Focus, which will help keep life/work balance under control, with more people working from home now and in the future. Focus will let you decide what kind of notifications you want to receive and when, and perhaps most importantly, from whom.

So set it to say "work" and you'll only hear from those people. Alternatively, you can set it to a "do not disturb" answer so that the boss doesn't politely remind you about your 8 a.m. meeting while you're having dessert.

iOS 15 also includes advanced security features like Mail Privacy Protection, which will hide any IP address you're using, so any company that sends you email can't link it to other online activity.

Changes have also been made to make it easier to keep track of links, photos, etc. sent via iMessage.

iPad fans are also set for additional goodies, with widgets you can set up for Apple TV and Contacts that offer an iPad-specific large display.

As always, though, there's no extreme reason to be the first to head over to download it. If you wait a few days any potential bugs will be gone so you can enjoy things better.
