The Best Features In iOS 15


Another September another iPhone and with it another version of iOS which will be rolled out on September 20. So here are the some of the best features we're looking forward to in iOS 15 which is actually going to be available on devices going all the way back to the iPhone 6s.

Let's start off by talking about focus, you know that thing that you can never actually do because you're on your iPhone all day, the focus feature in iOS 15 allows you to set up different use profiles depending on what you're doing at a given time it's a bit like a souped-up version of the feature of the same name for android except the android offering only allows you to turn focus mode on or off rather than making separate profiles for work, the gym, sleeping, playing etc. Focus will also let you filter notifications by person so you won't have to put up with text from like your boss when you're off and trying to game, or from your annoying friend.

Next up are updates to facetime one of which will make it easier for you to talk to folks who aren't on iOS after all android still controls about 73% of the worldwide smartphone market so a feature that's well overdue and it makes sense to let iPhone people talk to non-iPhone people, facetime will generate a link you can send to anyone not running iOS which will allow them to open up the facetime session in their regular browser.

Facetime will also enable share play so you can indulge in the very pandemic experience of watching a movie or tv show with your friends over the app and also it brings spatial audio which apple says is going to block out background noise from your calls while you're out.

Let's move on and talk about the new augmented reality features in iOS 15 which are similar to a couple of existing google lens features one is live text which can copy text from the camera as well as translate it if you're looking at something written in a foreign language, the other is called visual lookup which can give you information on whatever you're pointing your camera at usefaul if you're examining something unfamiliar.

Another cool feature is the ability to drag and drop photos and text from one app to another making it easier to do things like place photos in an email or mms message you'll have to use a second finger to switch into the receiving app, this feature might not work on every app but apple is banking on you using its built-in messages and photos apps which will be compatible with drag and drop just as they have already been on the iPad.

Next Shared with You feature which is designed to make it easier to find links and media that your contacts have sent you without having to dig back through hundreds or even thousands of messages shared with you, this will group everything that's been sent to you in a specific app into one list so if you suddenly need to recall the name of a song your friend sent you 10 months ago that you still haven't checked shared with you, should be able to bail you out.

If you’ve made it this far, I have a bonus for you, one of the best iOS 15 features is without a doubt Share Play. Now, the reason this didn’t make the official list is because it’s not yet available in this initial release of iOS 15. Apple has delayed it but it is by far one of the most anticipated features. You’ll be able to hold group, watch parties on FaceTime or share your screen if you’re giving a presentation. So, all the shared media is synced and can be controlled by all the users on a call. You can also send Share Play videos to your Apple TV devices. So, this means, you’ll be able to watch or listen to media from Apple, Airplay, Apple TV, Apple Music, Disney+, ESPN+, HBOMax, Hulu, Twitch, and the list just goes on and on.

So those are my picks for the best iOS 15 features. What do you think of my top iOS 15 features? Let everyone know in the comments below. As always thanks so much.
