What are the iOS 15 upgrades?

Update iOS 15 It will make many changes to the settings of your Apple devices. The new system will change notifications with a focus mode, as well as Do Not Disturb improvements. With the focus mode, it will be possible to create usage profiles to manage the receipt (or lack of) notifications, while the user performs other daily activities.

In Focus mode, for example, you’ll be able to create profiles when you’re in class and at the gym, and choose which apps or contacts can send notifications while they’re active. Another innovation is the service live text, which works similarly to Google Lens.

The service works as follows: when viewing an image, we can select / touch an object and learn more information about it, such as the location of a store or a clothing brand. Furthermore, iOS should launch SharePlay, which will allow users to make Facetime calls.
