Apple today officially announced that it will release the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 operating systems to the general public on Monday, September 20. The update includes several new features and changes such as FaceTime updates, new notification changes, and so on.
Although not mentioned during today’s event, the release date was revealed by Apple’s iPhone 13 press release.
iOS 15 is supported by all iPhone and iPod touch models running iOS 14:
- iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
- iPhone SE (1st generation)
- iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
- iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- iPhone XS and XS Max
- iPhone XR
- iPhone 11
- iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max
- iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12
- iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
- iPhone SE (2nd generation)
- iPod touch (7th generation)
While some features, such as SharePlay, will be missing in the first version of iOS 15, it has many notable new features. One of the most notable changes – Focus – allows you to set your own preferences for notifications and home screens.
Another new feature in iOS 15 is the all-new Weather app, which lets you view weather maps in full screen with rainfall, air quality, and temperature. The Weather app design is now also customizable to display the most important weather information for that location, and includes new map modules, an updated 10-day forecast, and new weather graphs.
iOS 15 also includes an all-new Safari design, which underwent several changes during the beta period. “The streamlined tab bar takes up less space on the page and floats slightly above the bottom of the screen for easier access. The bar slides to the side when scrolling and reappears when pressed, ”explains Apple.
iPhone 14 Pro Max running out of RAM? New Apple lost to the flagship Samsung due to the fact that two applications were unloaded from memory
The iPhone 14 Pro Max is finally brought head to head against Samsung’s flagship to see who’s faster. In this case, Galaxy Z Fold4 acted on behalf of the Korean giant.
The comparison was carried out by the authors of the PhoneBuff channel, who use a robotic arm, thus getting rid of the human factor.
The first lap was head-to-head, but at the end Fold4 lagged behind a bit. On the second lap, the Apple flagship was in the lead for a long time, but in the end it turned out that the iPhone unloaded Microsoft Excel and Word from memory, it had to load them again, and the Samsung flagship was ahead.
As a result, it was Fold4 that won, but the difference was as small as on the first lap, so in general the winner here can only be called conditionally.
It’s cooler than Apple and Microsoft: Intel introduced the Unison program for synchronizing messages and photos between iPhone, Android and PC
Intel has announced a new program called Unison that will allow you to connect iOS and Android smartphones to PCs with Intel processors. This will make it possible to actually transfer all the main functions of smartphones to a PC. This program was shown along with a PC with a sliding screen.
The new program will allow you to make and receive calls on your PC using your smartphone, send and receive text messages, transfer photos and files, and receive various notifications.
It’s somewhat similar to the Link to Phone app in Windows 10 and Windows 11, but Unison offers more options. If Link to Phone only works with Samsung smartphones and some other brands, then the new system will appear for all mobile devices. At the same time, the iPhone version will be slightly less functional – this applies to text messaging and managing third-party applications. All this is due to the restrictions put forward by the company from Cupertino.
At the first stage, the new feature will be available only to owners of laptops based on 12th generation processors released by Acer, HP and Lenovo. These laptops are part of the Intel Evo program. After the release of models on chips of the 13th generation, the list will expand.
Note that there is a similar one on the MacBook, where you can synchronize data with the iPhone. Now the same is expected on Windows.
