iOS 15: Best features and biggest changes

iOS 15: Best features and biggest changes

Whether you’re getting Apple’s new iPhone 13 or holding onto a six-year-old iPhone 6S, iOS 15 will be available to download to your phone starting Monday, Sept. 20. The new version of iOS has been in public beta for months undergoing a variety of tweaks leading to the final release. I’ve been testing iOS 15’s new features, and everything from bigger additions like FaceTime call weblinks for friends on Android and Windows to smaller changes like pinning conversations to the top of the Messages app have improved my iPhone without disrupting my daily status quo.

02:52 – Focus
04:15 – Portrait Mode for FaceTime
04:50 – Notification Summary
05:40 – Live Text
06:18 – Features missing at launch

    Honestly
    You are not very good at explaining things
    Please don’t waste your time and everyone else’s time
    Do something else

    Anyone who upgraded to 15 on Xr? Opinion please

  3. Jack Reiser on November 5, 2021 at 10:29 am

    You can’t tell me focus doesn’t sound exactly like a folder

  4. Martin on November 5, 2021 at 10:31 am

    7:21 video and u spent the first 3 minutes with what I can best equate to vacuous blathering :/ Do everyone a favor and get to point!

  5. Super Potato on November 5, 2021 at 10:31 am

  6. OxAudio on November 5, 2021 at 10:32 am

    You could be Ron Jeremy’s younger brother, just saying

  7. mcw0530 on November 5, 2021 at 10:34 am

    ITT: Ron Jeremy tells me to upgrade to iOS 15

  8. alexlawcb on November 5, 2021 at 10:36 am

    The calendar becomes very unresponsive in iOS 15.

  9. Kriz Yamz on November 5, 2021 at 10:38 am

    I wish I could stream/screen record Apple TV/video app on iOS 15.

    How there is a 2 minute difference between my iphone and a Samsung phone is also corruption probably after creepy evil Youtube employees=losers blocked my iphone ip address from their pathetic envy rather than ever trying to write something helpful and original by themselves, while my Samsung phone yet has this Youtube account not wronged by unethical Youtube employees.

  12. Nozkey 2nd on November 5, 2021 at 10:40 am

  13. Dirt Doctor on November 5, 2021 at 10:41 am

    You might want to think about that lifestyle, just saying

  14. milo20060 on November 5, 2021 at 10:42 am

  16. itsnicoletiana on November 5, 2021 at 10:43 am

    I have an unboxing video on my channel of my iPhone 13 pro max in white 128gb. If anyone has been considering getting this phone, GET IT!!! You won’t regret it. I love mine!

  17. Tristyn999 on November 5, 2021 at 10:44 am

    How hard is it for them to add some new wallpapers tho 🤦‍♂️ been had the same 4 since like iOS 7

  18. Get noob on November 5, 2021 at 10:44 am

    Get to the dam point

  19. HO CHI SOCK on November 5, 2021 at 10:44 am

    If you haven’t updated. Don’t even do it. It’s so bad. Bugs all over the place. Bluetooth is buggy with my studio3. Battery dies fast. YouTube is super slow. Keyboard clicks at different volume levels. Airpods pro constantly cut out.

  20. Walzing Dewormed on November 5, 2021 at 10:45 am

    When will we ever see these greasy millennial slobbers with the soy-drinkers voices squeaking away about how "life-changing" some of these new features are and blah,blah. Its a phone, get on with it, go play in nature, go running, chop some wood…

  21. Super Saiyan Bro on November 5, 2021 at 10:46 am

    Me barley updating to ios 15 today 🙃

  22. wisdom&genius&riches be mine don't care about fame on November 5, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Why did Apple turn on the wifi and bluetooth on after ios update on iphones? People should loathe the unethical choices Apple employees made and ruined and track down the Apple employees who ruined such settings from probably sheer envy immaturity not wishing customers to protect digital privacy. Same with discarding the power shutdown button

  23. Niyanta Chauhan on November 5, 2021 at 10:47 am

    This is another level! I’m enjoying it !

  24. Scott Brito on November 5, 2021 at 10:48 am

    Yo how bout that lower address bar 🙌🏽

  25. Al J on November 5, 2021 at 10:48 am

    I HATE this update. it delays so bad when connecting to my airpods then disconnects whenever it wants to smh

  26. Clay Doughty on November 5, 2021 at 10:48 am

    He said I have a focus mode set up for fitness…. I call cap on that one

  27. unicreate822 on November 5, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Add feature to put call on speaker with SIRI 🔈

  28. Yousef bukhamseen on November 5, 2021 at 10:51 am

    It doesn’t have the live text button in the screen of my phone and my phone is a Iphone 8

  29. Super Saiyan Bro on November 5, 2021 at 10:51 am

  32. EJ N on November 5, 2021 at 10:53 am

  35. fibrebird20 on November 5, 2021 at 10:58 am

  36. no on November 5, 2021 at 10:59 am

    I doubt this guy has focus for fitness at all

  37. unity Nima on November 5, 2021 at 10:59 am

    still no split screen or multi task on iPhone. Only available on iPad

  38. evotara on November 5, 2021 at 10:59 am

    i just like the lowered search bar

  39. SuperKing604 on November 5, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Focus doesn’t seem useful to me 🤷🏽‍♂️

  40. Tim Tyrone on November 5, 2021 at 11:06 am

    My heart filled with joy and appreciation to Dr Akpamu on youtube for curing my HSV2 with his natural roots and herbs.

  41. Dhammes on November 5, 2021 at 11:07 am

    Just updated today and I love it 😻

  42. Kiss the Sky on November 5, 2021 at 11:08 am

    SOY

  43. Eddy127 on November 5, 2021 at 11:12 am

    Wow I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max and I’m just reason almost a month later that this update was on my phone 😭😭😭

  44. Mack Daddy on November 5, 2021 at 11:12 am

    iOS 15 is great. A great battery eater lol

  45. TRAN on November 5, 2021 at 11:13 am

    I was currently on iOS 14 and my iMessage wouldn’t activate so it forced me to change to iOS 15

  46. Jack Sampson on November 5, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Why do say something older oddly after iPhone 11. iPhone X is still very relevant. They still make calls, text and stream.

  47. jjntwice on November 5, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Seems like I am playing “Catch Up” since IOS 13!

  48. Dustin Merrell on November 5, 2021 at 11:16 am

    When did CNET hire Ron Jeremy?

  49. -_Loca_- on November 5, 2021 at 11:16 am

    My favorite part is the weather map update and the ability to see incoming rain!

  50. jjntwice on November 5, 2021 at 11:19 am

    I’ve been trying to catch up since IOS 13.
