iOS15 Releaseing today

Posted on 2021-09-20 , by News Service

Are you EXCITED! I am excited for the release of iOS 15 to a host of supported Apple devices today. The update will be release starting 10:30pm India time tonight and this one is a shiny new iOS. I am truely excited about the release for iPadOS though. It is a very capable device and should not be crippled and constrained. This update will bring it on par with iPhone OS .sort of. What level of customizations I would prefer is at Android level. 

Wouldnt it be great to have an interface customization like apple watch skins for the iphone or ipad home screen or other screens there for. That would make the device sooo much more cooler and that might be the first in an OS. But looks like they are thinking in other terms like security which is essential however, the snazzier the interface, the funky it would look. 

I love customization and flexibility of Android in this case. Well with that said Apple updates are always what I have been looking forward to all these days.

And it prevents senders from seeing if you’ve opened their email.

Privacy
App Privacy Report
A section in Settings lets you see how often apps have accessed your location, photos, camera, microphone and contacts during the last 7 days. It also shows you which apps have contacted other domains and how recently they have contacted them. This is a good complement to an app’s privacy label, so you can be sure you’re comfortable with how it’s treating your privacy.6

Offline support
Siri can now process many types of requests offline without an Internet connection, including Timers & Alarms, Phone, Messaging, Sharing, App Launch, Control Audio Playback and Settings.7

Fast on-device processing
