Apple’s iOS 15 update has been perhaps the most anticipated update to date. From what we have seen so far it is packed with premium features to provide users with the most seamless experience possible. While we can’t be certain what features will be kept in the final version and which ones will be discarded we have picked our favorites.
Let’s have a rundown at some of the best features the latest iOS 15 update has to offer.
Although Live Text OCR isn’t new, its inclusion in iOS 15 will seem like magic. Users will be able to copy and paste text from photos using the Live Text feature in iOS 15. Live Text is compatible with both new and old photographs in your photo collection. The functionality will be available in English, Chinese, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Spanish, among other languages.
Text selection has been improved
The magnifying loupe, thankfully, is making a triumphant return with iOS 15. With iOS 13, Apple got away from it, and the alternative was a step backward in user interface design. Users will be able to choose exactly the text they want with iOS 15 thanks to an “improved cursor that magnifies the text you’re looking at,” according to Apple.
Voice Isolation on FaceTime
Apple is attempting to outflank Zoom with iOS 15. Zoom soon became a household name during the COVID outbreak. As a result, it revealed how inadequate FaceTime was in comparison.
As a result, Apple has updated FaceTime in iOS 15 to include a variety of new capabilities. Voice Isolation is one of the most intriguing new features. In short, Apple has incorporated technology that allows a user’s voice to be isolated during a phone call. The feature is powered by machine learning and can reduce background and ambient noise. Additionally, iPhone users will be able to video chat with Android and Windows users using FaceTime with iOS 15.
SharePlay is, without a doubt, the most eagerly awaited feature of iOS 15. Unfortunately, it will not be included in the initial release of iOS 15. Instead, it will be released a few weeks later to allow Apple to work out a few quirks and performance difficulties.
On the other hand, it will undoubtedly transform the way you use your iPhone once it is released. Users will be able to FaceTime and carry out data transfer across devices using this capability. In other words, iPhone users will be able to simultaneously view movies and listen to music with other Apple users. It’s worth noting that the capability is cross-platform, meaning that iPhone users can share material with Mac and iPad users.
Drag and drop apps
On iOS 15, the ability to drag and drop files across apps is a game-changer. iPhone users will now be able to perform basic actions such as dragging a photo from the Photos app and pasting it into an email.
Focus in iOS 15 could very well be the feature you use the most in iOS 15. The Focus function, as its name suggests, allows users to set up different Focus settings for different types of use-case scenarios. For example, you may set up a “work mode” on your iPhone that disables push alerts from EPSN, Facebook, and other recreational apps for some time. In a similar spirit, you might enable a “sleep mode” in which work notifications are disabled and only texts from family and friends are displayed.
