Apple’s upcoming event ‘California streaming’ will be held on September 14 at 10:00 a.m. PT and ahead of its special event, the company has teased new features on iOS 15 coming to compatible devices.
The next-generation iOS 15 was announced at WWDC 2021. Scheduled to launch in Fall, the new iOS update included several exciting and innovative features for FaceTime, iMessage, Maps, Notifications, Weather, Wallet, Safari, Health, and other apps. However, the company confirmed that the announced FaceTime SharePlay feature will not be included in the public release of the OS but will be released later this year. Here is the list of new features coming on iPhones this month.
Here are new features coming on iOS 15
A notification from the Tips app informs the users that new features are coming. It reads, “See what’s coming in iOS 15. Learn about new features that will help you stay connected and find focus.” Tapping on the notification, the app shows an iOS 15 preview which includes the following upcoming features:
- Voice Isolation
- New Shared With You section in apps
- Safari Tab Groups
- Live Text in Photos
- Systemwide translation
- Focus mode
- Notification summaries
- Augmented reality walking directions in Maps
iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 compatible devices
- iPhone 6s and later
- iPad Pro (all models)
- iPad Air 2 and later
- iPad 5th generation and later
- iPad mini 4 and later
- iPod touch (7th generation)
Some of the devices in this list are 6 years old yet Apple is still supporting them. The update will likely be made public shortly after the September 14 event and the new iPhone 13 series will come with iOS 15 pre-installed. Last year, iOS 14 was released to the public a day after the September 15 ‘Time Flies’ event. In addition to iOS, software updates across devices are also expected including iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, watchOS 8, and macOS Monterey. The event can be streamed live on apple.com and apple’s YouTube channel.
