A new look for Safari
It is a redesign that has been seen in many forms since its announcement at WWDC. While its user interface saw some major changes, strong user feedback resulted in the final redesign of what came before, and what has been refined in the months since WWDC.
By default, the address bar will be located at the bottom, making it very easy to reach with your thumb, while swiping left or right on the address bar will switch between any open tabs. But you can revert it back to its original state if you want Safari to look the same as ever.
There’s also a new home screen in which you can set a wallpaper, showing any open tabs on your other Apple devices, thanks to iCloud, along with checking any suggestions of websites.
Tabs also see an improvement in Safari for iOS 15. Tab Groups can open a collection of your favorite websites in one go so that you can check the latest news without having to open a separate tab and navigate through the website. These are also synced across your Apple devices, like how individual tabs sync, so you can open the same groups on your iPad.
Using Focus for Your Workflow
Sometimes you are at work or busy attending an event where you don’t want some information to make you aware of something. This is where Focus redesigns how apps can let you know when you want them. You can set individual focus moments, so if you reach a certain location, or you open a certain app, True Focus will be enabled, allowing you to read through or complete a project in a curated way. can.
This feature also applies to messages, so if someone sends you a picture for example, it will be delivered to your device, but not as a notification. The focus will let the recipient know you’re busy, but they can bypass it to deliver with a notification if it’s urgent. These focus settings also apply to your other Apple devices, so any notifications will also be muted at certain times of day if needed.
You can also set the focus to change your home screen when a certain landscape is enabled. This can bring to the fore the other apps that you will be using the most for that period.
Copy text from photos with LiveText
You may be on vacation and want to go to a restaurant, but it’s in language you don’t understand. By taking a picture of it in iOS 15, LiveText can tell what text is in the picture, and offer to translate it for you.
LiveText is a feature that can be applied to all the photos you’ve taken so far, as well as when you’re holding your iPhone facing an object in real time.
It’s a topic that’s a big focus for Apple, and iOS 15 has a number of new features that demonstrate this.
There’s an App Privacy Report that gives you an overview of apps installed on your iPhone, which have used certain hardware features like the camera or microphone, and whether any apps are trying to use any personal data.
When sending mail in iOS 15, your IP address is hidden, so recipients won’t know if their email has been opened or deleted.
iCloud+ for iOS 15 is also a big tentacle, with Hide My Email that allows you to generate a random email alias so you’re protected from spam, similar to the Sign in with Apple feature that appeared in iOS 12.
There’s also a private relay feature, which can hide your IP address while browsing in Safari, but will only be available in beta after iOS 15 is released.
a new day for the season
Following its acquisition of Dark Sky in 2019, the Weather app is seeing a major redesign for iOS 15. Now on the main screen there are notifications for rain, thunder and snow along with new animations for all weather changes.
Now there’s a second window that can show you more details about your current location or other locations, from the time of sunset and sunrise to the chance of rain in the next hour.
The weather app also has integrated maps, so you can check the forecast in different locations to see air quality, precipitation and temperature conditions.
