Those who were expecting a new MacBook or a new iPhone were disappointed, who Apple-No customer. In a keynote online speech that lasted nearly two hours on Monday evening, Apple showed what new functions and capabilities the iPhone, Mac, iPod and Apple Watches will soon learn through updates.
The all-inclusive theme of the show will move even closer to Apple’s devices. Many of the functions provided for one of the operating systems are available on all devices in the evening, whether iPhone, iPad or Mac. A clear example is the Safari web browser, which has not only a new, modern design, but also the option of group tabs, which, according to Apple, should be available “instantly” on all users’ devices. So you can continue a browsing session you started on the iPhone on the iPhone – or vice versa.
But the most exciting is a function called Universal Control. This makes it possible to use the keyboard and mouse simultaneously with multiple devices, such as the MacBook keyboard on the iPad and iMac. Combined with continuous technology, it makes it possible to transfer data between Apple devices in real time, and in the future will be able to work simultaneously on multiple Apple gadgets simultaneously on a program such as a video. Utilizing specific skills and applications of the respective devices. It remains to be seen how intuitively this technology can be applied in practice.
iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 learn to read text in photos
Apple Manager is dedicated to the future iPhone operating system iOS 15, and its chat applications iMessage and FaceTime will be greatly expanded. For example, Fair Time Shareplay enables you to watch movies, listen to music or share the screen together, for example, you can browse apartment offers in one app and talk about what you currently see and hear. Additionally, you can schedule facetime chats and invite them with calendar invitations. It should also include Windows users who can connect to video chats via a web browser.
The “focus” function of iOS 15 is increasingly on the health area. It helps define which messages users want to see when and where. For example, you can specify that you do not want to display any messages at home or that the software should disable everything before you go to bed.
Apple wants to take photos from “live text”, which means which plant is now being photographed. Apple announced that handwritten text should be translated directly into computer text and that phone numbers could be dialed directly from a photo.
Apple has also improved the visual map application, which now looks like a game of creating a somewhat realistic city. An activity is shown that will take you on the right track if you get lost. Just scan some buildings with the camera on the Apple map. Currently, this activity is only useful for a few because the activity has only been reported in six US cities.
Sri is very private
Data security innovations in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 include speech recognition Shri Thus it can run fully on the device. In addition to the fact that no voice recordings are sent to Apple’s server, it should be faster than voice recognition in the cloud. A device with at least one A12 chip, such as the iPhone XS and iPod Air 3, is a prerequisite.
Incidentally, if you wish, you can share your voice recordings with Apple to improve the service. The Company reiterates that such data is strictly processed only anonymously. Many users will not select this option.
Through a process that Apple calls a “private relay”, the team wants to give its users more privacy and the opportunity to browse the Internet anonymously. Like what is called a VPN, the computer hides the appearance of access to a website, thus making the user anonymous. According to Apple, the system is designed so that even Apple can not identify the author. However, unlike a VPN service, this system is not able to simulate a different location, and many VPN users can use US streaming services not available in their country.
A feature called “Hide My Email” also aims to create disposable email addresses that can be used to sign in to services without authorization. Like “Private Relay”, this functionality is only available to customers who have a tariff savings subscription for iCloud. The option to show which applications have access to functions such as camera and location data is available to all users as the “Application Privacy Statement”.
Multi Task is best with iPods 15
Since the introduction of the new iPod Pro, it has become clear that something has to go with the iPad. The tablet in Apple’s latest incarnation is equipped with the same M1 processor, which is also found in the new MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and the new iMac and ensures high performance with low power consumption. But in order to make this performance usable, the iPad has yet to come up with an easy way to use its multitasking capabilities.
IPods 15 should close this gap with a new multitasking menu that allows you to modify apps at the touch of a finger or place a second or third app on top of one or two already running apps. .
In addition, the iPad 15 will have capabilities already known from the iPhones. For example, the possibility to place widgets displaying the weather forecast or new news on the home screen. Or the option to auto-organize applications in the application library.
A function that reconnects all devices is part of the presentation of the new MacOS, which has been given the nickname Apple »Montessori. This will enable AirPlay to Mac in the future, allowing iPhone and iPad users to display pictures and photos from their mobile devices as a background surface for MacBooks and iMox screens.
As always, when Apple announces major updates to its operating systems, new software versions released on Monday will appear “in the fall.” Within that, there will be new gadgets that are up to date with the latest updates. Paid developers, on the other hand, can now download pre-release versions. Apple has announced general beta versions for everyone for the month of July.
