iOS 15 is super cool; nobody was expecting so many new features and improvements over the last update.
The software update has been announced by Tim Cook, Craig Federighi, and a trove of executives on stage at the opening keynote of WWDC 2021.
As a result, we have all the details of iOS 15.

Here is everything you need to know about iOS 15.

The most important features of iOS 15
There are many cool features, but let’s see together which are the most important ones.
Facetime is already very popular and it is attracting new users each moment.
Now the app gains spatial audio support and voice isolation.
Spatial audio means that you will hear words through Facetime like you hear them when you discuss with a person face to face.
Voice isolation prioritizes your voice over the surrounding white noise. To demonstrate that, Apple presented some videos, check them.
Both features are heavily improving Facetime.
And things get even better.
Facetime will work while you listen to songs or watch a TV show, and even while you share your screen to view apps together.
SharePlay is the name of this feature.
Facetime will work also on Android and Windows, ending the years of waiting.
In other words, the whole world will have access to Facetime.
Notifications were reinvented
Many people, including me, wanted a better notification structure.
Know we get large and more impactful icons but also a notification summary. We will decide which apps are not so important so the app can bundle up them.
In this way, we can decide that we want to receive only certain notifications – phone, SMS, WhatsApp, email, etc.
I always wanted such a feature, I bet you too.
Do Not Disturb is now Focus
Focus allows you to select what apps are allowed to send you notifications or which contacts can bother you with their messages and calls.
Again, this is super nice.
Isolate text from photos
We will have the possibility to isolate text from photos and screenshots.
Maps is even better than before
Apple Maps has an augmented reality feature that helps you navigate your immediate surroundings.
Safari is redesigned
Just like on Mac’s Big Sur update, Safari was updated also for iOS 15.
It is very fast, intuitive, easy to use, and secure.
I always used Google Chrome but now I am using Safari on my Mac, and it is much better.
More than sure Safari will rock also in iOS 15.
Weather gets a new look
Weather app will look better. Additionally, the feel of Weather will also improve big time.
We get full-screen radar maps that display temperatures and precipitation on an interactive map, making it easier to see live weather updates and forecasts for a specific area.
It scores a couple of new features, namely: Walking Steadiness – new Mobility algorithms assess balance, stability, and coordination via the iPhone/Watch sensors; Trends – long-term changes in various health and fitness metrics that the Apple Health app integrates; and finally, Better Labs – bloodwork lab data tracking and analysis.
Of course, operating system updates are always a big deal as they help us very much. As well updates in general.
Again, iOS 15 is super cool to have all these features and updates, and I cannot wait to install it. 100% I will fully customize the Focus app and the notifications, to stay more focused on what I do.
