Apple is all geared up to introduce iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 for iPhones and iPads at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 7. As noted by the source, this update will offer “the most significant home screen update since the release of the first generation of the tablet in 2010,”.
The news was shared by Bloomberg and reposted by GizChina. According to the source, the new update will bring some improvements to the operating systems.
According to the update, users will be given more control over how incoming notifications will be displayed. These notifications will depend on the mode of operation of the device – whether the person is driving, sleeping, working, or turned on the “Do not disturb” mode.
For iPads, it will be possible to add widgets on the desktop. We don’t have much information about this update, but it’s noted that it will be the most significant since the release of the first iPad.
From the security point of view, with the new menu, users will view information that certain applications collect about the device. It could be related to the privacy labels that Apple introduced to the App Store in December 2020.
Moreover, users could access the aforementioned security settings on the locked screen.
The new iMessage will be able to compete with WhatsApp “and make it more like a social network”. However, this “feature is still in early stages of development” and may be unveiled later this year.
There are some minor updates for macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. Apple introduced a redesigned macOS last year with the Big Sur announcement – only minor tweaks and changes are expected.
In addition to this, we also hear that Apple will release the iOS 14.5 update in the next week. It will bring support for AirTags, updated Siri with new voices for the digital assistant, and the ability to change the skin color of the emoji.
