However, there are many other new functions that we already have with us, such as the new accessibility options in iOS and iPadOS 15. Among those new options we have the call Background sounds‘which, as its name suggests, allows you to reproduce a constant sound in the background to increase concentration and optimize time.

Apple always pays great attention to accessibility features in big updates to your operating systems. It is a way to increase the integration of your software and hardware for people with different disabilities. However, in the latest updates we are seeing that the Big Apple also includes accessibility tools that cross borders beyond disabilities but to solve some kind of problem that generates any user certain situations.

iOS and iPadOS 15 could not be less and one of these new options is the call Background sounds. As its name suggests, it allows us to continuously reproduce a sound regardless of what is sounded in parallel in the applications. The user can choose the sound they want from those available: balanced noise, bright noise, dark noise, ocean, stream or rain.
