Although there have been speculations that Apple has also announced new products, only software has played a role at WWDC, with the release of iOS and iPadOS 15, WatchOS 8 also debuting (and MacOS Monterey also unveiled) . Improvements and innovations are not drastic, there is no new design and no new logic, but rather functionality has been expanded by focusing on the areas of communication, productivity and data security.
The new iOS brings with it a new FaceTime where group chat is the main focus. You can filter out background noise, or just enable it directly if more than one person is talking, the current speaker’s head gets a frame, you can share music and movies to watch them together, and you can show your own screen, which can come in handy , if someone needs to be helped to access a certain function. You can turn on portrait mode, which blurs the background behind your head, and FaceTime Link is good for scheduling calls to invite attendees who don’t even have to use Apple stuff because the conversation goes smoothly from a browser as well. In short: Zoom in on FaceTime.
A new feature is “Shared with You”, which collects images, links, videos in messages into one interface so that we don’t miss them, and at the same time the notification management has changed, which groups different types of events into categories, and then if you want we can look at these at the same time at a convenient moment.
At the same time, Focus has been introduced, which allows you to simply not disturb certain notifications in certain life situations, and you can create personal, work, and personal Focus templates by configuring notifications so that you can filter them properly.
In addition, they can be linked to time and location, so for example, when you get to the gym, the system offers to use this template, in which case it also gives feedback to those who are not currently able to deal with your message on the filter list. But if the thing is very important, the sender can ask separately to still receive the notification on our phone.
Also a new feature is “Live Text”, which detects and processes the text in our photos, even by generating actual text from them, which can then be inserted into anything (such as a letter) with a single gesture, it doesn’t just work when you’re shooting it recognizes an image of a note, but also the text on our previous photos, and we can even search the gallery this way.
The display of our contacts in the contact list has also changed, we will get a lot more information about the given person in one place, not only his / her contact details will be displayed on the interface, but also the photos and links he / she shares. Another new feature is “Photo Memories”, although many competitors already offer this under Android: the software puts together a tiny movie of our pictures and videos taken at a similar time or place, under which it mixes some of our favorite music. Obviously, this can be parameterized in many ways.
UWB (Ultra Wideband) technology is expected to cover additional areas of use, such as being used instead of a key with new features built into the Wallet app. For now, BMW is Apple’s partner for future iX models, but smart home companies can also offer locks that can be opened with suitable Apple devices. Also new to Wallet is that it will handle an access card (and hotel room key), but in America, some states already accept the license stored in the app as an identification document so we don’t really have to take our wallet with us.
The Weather app has been updated with a lot of new backgrounds and information, and Mapset has been filed a lot, which in some cities offers quite serious visual navigation so that we not only see which lane we have to drive in, but also indicate traffic lights, zebras, the bike paths, and at more complex intersections, also shows a 3D view of the various underpasses and overpasses to predict where to go. The 3D view is now able to accurately show level differences and has an evening view, but it still only works in a few (mostly American) cities, just as public transit news isn’t available everywhere, although there is a well-known landing warning from Google Maps has also been included in Apple’s software. Even more useful is the fact that when arriving at street level from the area of a more complex station, the system shows the correct direction on the image of the camera using AR.
One of the most spectacular innovations in iPadOS version 15 is that wherever we can put a widget on the screens, larger gadgets are also available here due to the larger display. Also new is that the icons of our rarely used applications can be placed in folders by automatic categorization, and this division can be accessed from the dock at any time, or we can decide for ourselves that we don’t really need a screen icon and drop this page out of the menu. the result is that the drawings of the apps shown so far are included in the categorized folders.
The multitasking process is new, you can drag the toolbar off the top of any app, which pulls away the screen of the current app and arranges the two apps side by side by selecting another one from the home page. Of course, you can switch and replace them as you wish, and the multitasking mode is also available from the application switching interface.
A new feature is Quick Note, which can be pulled out from the bottom right corner of the screen, a virtual post-it pops up that you can scribble on, which isn’t a big deal in itself, but contextual, so you can remember which website you were on when you took notes and if we make a mistake again, our previous comment will also appear. Obviously, this can also be forwarded by automatically attaching the link to the message.
They also dealt quite a bit with the issue of data protection. Mail enhancements hide our IP address on demand and do not show that we have opened the email, and Safari has been remarkably revamped, the most important thing from a privacy point of view is to be able to track exactly which external server our visit data goes to a particular page viewed. A further innovation of Apple’s browser on all platforms is that they have tried to maximize the size of visible content by hiding a lot of icons in the menu bar so far behind a separate icon, making page tabs narrower and the search engine always next to the current page tab. In addition, page tabs can be stored together as if you were creating a bookmark package, which can be retrieved at any time, which comes in handy when one opens different pages for different tasks. For example, it would be practical for us to write a test, because in addition to Kimovil, GSMArena, our own brightness and benchmark table, Mobilarena is also open, as we often rely on these when making a material, but Apple gave that example. that someone is planning a trip for days and opens lots and lots of sites in search of attractions, restaurants and accommodation. And you can store them as a Tab Group and reopen the pages you use at any time.
In both iOS and iPadOS, you can see when and which app used what data (for example, how many times you requested our location), but they also give a new solution to a forgotten password, using a contact we provide who receives the code to reactivate your account. In a similar way, we can make sure who can handle our data in the event of our death. ICloud + has been launched, which offers disposable email addresses in addition to the known features.
Health features have also been developed, such as the stability of our steps is already monitored by sensors in the phone to alert us if our gait seems uncertain. In the same way, intelligence monitors whether our health data from different sources (blood pressure, blood oxygen, heart rate, number of steps) show a sudden change, and the system also helps to interpret findings from certain U.S. health care providers. If required, we can also see the data of our family members, if the other party agrees, in which case we can even request notification if the values of, say, our parents change anxiously.
There are not many innovations in the new WatchOS, we get relaxation solutions (in the form of breathing exercises and soothing thoughts), and the wallpaper can be tweaked when a portrait photo is chosen, in which case the image is composed as if the subject were in front of the clock. . We can view our pictures on the watch, we can also send photos of the watch and sleep monitoring has been improved by monitoring the number of breaths.
Siri has also innovated, interpreting and executing a lot of commands without the need for a network connection, because specifically the voice does not leave the phone, but the chipset processes the information, thus responding to voice commands much, much faster than if you had to wait. to return an interpretation of the instruction from a remote server.
The official release date for the new iOS 15 is not yet known, but the update will usually arrive in September, but you may already know that the iPhone 6S is the oldest device you will receive, but the first-generation iPhone SE will not be left out. . The same goes for the iPadOS 15, where the 2015 iPad Mini and Pro models are the oldest supported devices.
