Apple has just announced the next iteration of software for iPhone and iPad at WWDC 2021, appropriately named iOS 15. This was definitely expected, and we are going to see a lot of new features, changes, and improvements in the latest version of iOS.
Here’s everything we know about iOS 15 so far.
iOS 15 is bringing some big changes to FaceTime calls. First, you’ll be getting Spatial Audio, so everyone on a FaceTime call sounds more natural, comfortable, and lifelike. It’s as if you are all in the same room. The microphone is also getting improvements with Voice Isolation and WIde Spectrum modes. Voice Isolation will use Machine Learning to block out background noise. Wide Spectrum does the opposite and will pick up everything around you, including your own voice.
Video calls in FaceTime will be getting a grid view that still makes it clear who is speaking. It will also use Portrait Mode to blur the background and put the focus on you. FaceTime calls can now be shared with a link, and you can share those links though traditional share methods through the Share Sheet. FaceTime is now also available for Android and Windows users with end-to-end encryption.
There is also going to be SharePlay, allowing you to share experiences with a group through FaceTime. This means you can listen and watch audio and video together, and even share your screen with others.
Are you excited for iOS 15?
As you can tell, there is a lot coming in iOS 15. We’re excited to get our hands on it and try out all of the new features before it officially launches in the fall.
