iOS 15 brings a new look to notifications as well. Apple has introduced notification summary, which basically provides gist of what’s happening in the day, so that you don’t need to go through each and every message you received and save some of your time there. Apple also announced a do not disturb mode with which you can mute all notifications, a feature really needed when you’re at work. Isn’t it?

With iOS 15 comes Focus mode, which allows users to focus on either or personal life or work or another. So, if you are at work, you can choose Work in the Focus mode and get only work updates such as emails, and more. You can also set the timings, for instance, no work after 9pm and more. Apple provides some options, and there are ways to customize focus mode as well.

iOS 15 also brings features such as Live text, it works in a way that when you point the camera at text, it gets highlighted, and you can select, copy and paste it elsewhere. Live text uses a “deep neural network” to scan photos “across the entire system” including photos on the web. It supports seven languages for now. iOS 15 also brings Spotlight universal search which can basically search for photos in the photos collection.

iOS 15 introduces updates for Memories feature. Interestingly, now Memories will add Apple Music automatically in the memories videos and makes it more lively than ever before. The latest iteration of iOS also brings new updates to wallets and weather. The weather app gets redesigned, and more current conditions features.

Lastly, Apple Maps gets new improvements. With the iOS 15, Maps get driving mode which provides more road details such as bus lanes and more.
