Apple is set to release its fifteenth major iOS mobile operating system. iOS 15 will offer new features to iPhone and iPod Touch users that will elevate their mobile experience. The new version update of the iOS will bring added tools for FaceTime, Safari, Maps, Wallet, Weather, Photos, and more.
New features for iOS 15 will include Focus and Live Text. Users will find Focus handy as it prevents distractions from notifications and apps. Live Text will be able to recognize text in images so that you can highlight and copy it.
There will be added experience for FaceTime calls with spatial audio and voice isolation. You can also enjoy the new upgraded grid view when you FaceTime your friends. Plus, SharePlay will enable you to share and sync media when on a FaceTime call. You can share links, images, and even your screen.
You can download and install iOS 15 upgrade on iPhone 6S phones and later devices.
Another excellent feature on the iOS 15 update is the ability to edit and change the EXIF data of photos and videos you have taken on your iPhone including the date, time and even the location. Prior to this new feature on iOS15, iPhone users need to sync their images to a Mac computer to use the Photos app or any other third-party software to set or adjust incorrect metadata. But now, it’s here right on your fingertips.
You may not always use it every day, but it is helpful if the timestamp on your images is wrong. Having a more accurate and original date, time, and location stamp or metadata on your camera pictures and videos is better for documentation and sharing as well as for organizing your personal stuff on your phone.
