iOS 15 Release Date (Beta and Stable)
iOS 15 to be released in mid-2021, which can be July 2021. If Apple follows the previous pattern of release dates, June 2021 is the month for the iOS 15 Beta. Alongside, iOS, we are expecting new versions of iPadOS, macOS, and tvOS.
Apple might start rolling out the iOS 15 Developer Beta just after the WWDC Event, and after testing it for around three months, that makes up to August 2021, the final stable iOS 15 could release anytime in September 2021.
Meanwhile, you can opt for betas if you have a developer account then you can get early access to new features, or just wait for the public beta.
iOS 15 Features (Expected)
While the iOS 15 is months away, but still there’s a rumor or say expectation that Apple might fulfill in the next update. We’ve gathered some of the best iOS 15 features that Apple might release with iOS 15.
Allowing to Change Default Apps
Out of nowhere, iOS 14 brought some of the best features that users are asking for for years, like allowing users to set their own default Apps, Mail and Browser App successfully got these updates. Meaning, if you’re running iOS 14.0.1 or higher version, you can change the default browser and mail app on your iPhone. In iOS 15, we’re expecting the same for the Messaging, Calendar, or any other apps.
Presentation Mode in FaceTime
When we look at the most popular, downloaded, and used apps of 2020, Zoom, and Skype tops the list. The pandemic taught us so much, how to work from home, operate with full functionality, and many more things. Without Zoom and Skype, there won’t be any business meetings or anything to grow or run the business. Later the Google released the Meet App, which has the same features.
Apparently, Apple’s FaceTime still beats the other video calling and video conferencing apps but lacks the presentation option. So, if presentation mode comes to FaceTime, it would be great for the users who want to stick around the Apple ecosystem.
Widgets on Lock Screen
Home Screen Widgets was a big dream for iPhone users until iOS 14 was introduced. First major default applications got this update, and soon the third-party applications started updating their apps regarding the same. However, right now the Widgets are limited to the Home Screen.
With Home Screen Widgets you don’t need to navigate all the way down to the applications just to check something. Still, you need to unlock the device and get the hands-on Widgets, what if Apple lets you access the widgets from the lock screen itself, there won’t be any need to unlock and waste battery.
