Apple Notes saw a modest update with iOS | iPadOS 15, but one new feature that was added is sure to help your organization.
The Photos app is getting a new feature in iOS 15 called Visual Look Up, and it leverages the powerful on-device machine learning.
Shortcuts is getting some new features with iOS 15 as well as appearing on macOS Monterey this fall. Here are some of the new changes.
iOS 15 brings a new feature in the Health app that lets you automatically share your medical ID during an emergency call.
One of the privacy features coming with iOS 15 is called Hide My Email. It‘s part of iCloud+ and lets you use random email aliases.
At WWDC21 Apple said that the iOS 15 public beta would be released in July, so it’s possible this early release means that the OS is fairly stable.
Users appear to be somewhat underwhelmed with the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 features announced at WWDC 2021. The results of a survey by SellCell, reported by MacRumors, revealed that nearly half were not excited.
Over 50 percent of all of the survey’s respondents said that the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 updates are only “slightly” or “not at all” exciting. 28.1 percent rated the updates “somewhat” exciting, but as few as 19.3 percent are “extremely” or “very” excited about them. Within iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, 23 percent of users said that the most exciting upgrade is ID cards in the Wallet app, 17.3 percent are most excited about enhanced Spotlight search, and 14.2 percent are most excited about new Find My features.
Matthew Cassinelli shared a post on his website sharing 22 new actions coming to shortcuts for iOS | iPadOS 15, and 21 Mac-only actions. The full post requires a subscription but he shared an image with details.
With the release of iOS 15 and the associated betas across Apple’s platforms, the Shortcuts app has received 2 automation types and 22 new actions that work across iPhone, iPad, and macOS as well as 21 Mac-only actions.
I think I’m most looking forward to Get Folder Contents, Rename File, Overlay Text, Extract Text From Image, and probably Get File From Folder.

The Magnifier app is on the Home Screen by Default in iOS 15 – in previous iterations, it had to be accessed via the Accessibility menu.
In iOS 15, Mail Privacy Protection, announced at WWDC 2021, can be turned on in either the Mail or Settings app.
One of the updates to Apple Wallet in iOS 15 is letting people scan their driver’s license. But is that a good thing?
One major question is how Apple users and law enforcement like TSA agents will actually interact with these digital IDs. If your driver’s license is on your phone, you could potentially have to present your fully unlocked device to a law enforcement agent in a transaction like a traffic stop or at airport security. That could, in turn, expose you to incidental search of your data, social media accounts, or anything else the agent flicks to.
Apple announced a swathe of new privacy features for its operating systems, and Apple VP Craig Federighi spoke about the new changes.
