Apple did not need to launch any new version of their OS, but they did. They always tend to offer more than what is required, don’t they?
With its announcement in June 2021, iOS 15 has already seized the attention of the world. Apple will launch its new version of iOS this fall. Many new features like tools to reduce distractions, new face time, notification summary, and more have been added. (More on new features later.)

iPhone 7 Plus
iPhone 8 Plus
iPhone XS Max
iPhone 11 Pro
iPhone 11 Pro Max
iPhone 11 Pro Max
iPhone SE (2020)

New and Improved Features
Apple has added a new audio technology that makes the voice of the 2nd person in the video call sound like it is coming from their mouth. More features like background blur and grid view for group FaceTIme have also been added.
Apple has also added a new feature called FaceTime link through which, as the name suggests, you can share links directing to the FaceTime call via messages or their apps. There’s this new feature called SharePlay, using which you can watch movies and share other sources of entertainment via FaceTime.
The new Find My app enables the user to locate a lost device. It can even be used for sharing the live location of a family member or friend.
Integration of Apple Music, updated Memories section, a more user-friendly look, and new Memories look has been introduced in the latest edition of iOS, i.e., iOS 15.
New Notification panel
The Notifications system has undergone a complete do-over. Now, notifications will display contact pictures of people and larger icons for better identification.
The most desired feature has finally been introduced, the notification summary. This feature will collect less important notifications and show them at more desirable times like the evening or morning.
For developers, there is also a new notification API. This will allow them to send Time-Sensitive notifications and use the new look for notifications.
In their new iOS15, Apple has introduced a new interactive globe view and has enhanced the details in a new 3D view for cities significantly. Apple has redesigned the Maps and has added a new 3D city-driving experience with road details such as turn lanes, medians, bike lanes, and pedestrian crosswalks that work both on the iPhone and in Apple CarPlay.
Focus is the new tool that helps people to reduce distractions. It can customize and filter notifications for lock and home pages based on what the user want’s to focus on.
All you need to do is leave it to iOS 15, and it will figure everything out and will suggest Focuses to you based on your recent activity or most-used apps.
