For iPhone and iPad owners, Apple recently released iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. The business has seeded the first betas of iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1 just one day after the deployment. SharePlay, lossless audio for HomePod, vaccination cards in the wallet, and other features are all reintroduced in the beta releases.
Here’s a rundown of what’s new in iOS 15.1:
The SharePlay feature has been activated in the betas of iOS 15.1, iPadOS 15.1, and tvOS 15.1. The functionality was removed from iOS 15 since it was not working properly. The SharePlay feature, which is included in FaceTime, allows users to call their friends and family and then watch TV, movies, or listen to music together. Users can also share their screens using this functionality. If the feature works during testing, it’s possible that iOS 15.1 will bring it to iPhone users.
Lossless Audio for HomePod
The HomePod and HomePod Mini now support Lossless Audio and Dolby Atmos with Spatial Audio thanks to the HomePod 15.1 beta and the new iOS 15.1 beta.
Vaccine cards in the wallet
The option to download and store verifiable health records in the Health app was introduced in iOS 15, and this record includes the Covid-19 vaccination records and health results. Users will be able to add vaccination records to the Wallet app with iOS 15.1, allowing them to provide the vaccination card to companies, restaurants, and other locations that require vaccines.
Announce calls are also available in the new beta. There’s a new symbol for the ‘Announce Calls’ settings in the Phone app’s Settings.
