iMessage on iOS 15

iMessage is an in-built messaging feature for iPhone users which now supports the image grids when someone sends a message with multiple images. That means, the receiver can slide on the images right there while getting notified.

Also, there is a “Shared With You” feature that shows quick access to the first-party apps on iOS when someone shares something through iMessage.

For instance, if someone shares a music link, it will show when you open iTunes and a link would show up when you open Safari. This way, you will never miss on stuff shared by your close friends.

Focus Mode

It is an extended version of the DND feature that has been in iOS for a long time. It gives you an opportunity to choose from different modes like work, and sleep. Certain notifications are now turned off, to keep the user undisturbed.

There are several modes such as personal mode, where you get notified only about the personal stuff. In the work mode, you will get all work-related notifications. Also, Apple has said that iOS 15  learns the users work pattern and suggests “Focus Mode” according to location or activities, such as when you are studying or in the library.

Live Text

Through Live Text, one can copy the text from an image right there in the gallery, even without internet connection. Thus, if you have an iPhone with updated iOS you do not need Google Lens anymore.

The Bottom Line

Apple never dissatisfies its customers. There are many significant features with the iOS 15 update that will allow Apple users to have a better experience. This update is supported on iPhone SE 3 and later.
