Apple released this Monday Annual Global Developers Conference (WWDC) by revealing new options for FaceTime users to watch movies or listen to music together during a call.
In addition, Android and Windows users will now be able to join FaceTime calls – but only from a web browser. With the addition of a new background blur option, a reticle display to better display every face during a call and better sound isolation, the software could compete with Zoom, the video conferencing giant.
Apple is also revealing updates to its Apple Wallet mobile wallet, which will unlock your home, hotel room, or car from the app using digital keys.
Also in Apple Wallet, users will be able from this fall to erase their driver’s license or ID in the Wallet app, where it will be stored in an encrypted form.
Another new feature in iOS: Focus, a notification customizer that lets you decide what types of alerts you want to receive, from whom and at what time of the day.
In iMessage, Apple wants to make it easy for users to keep track of photos, links, and other content sent to them. Thus, apps like Photos, Safari, and Apple Music will now include a “shared folder with you” to mark content sent via messages.
iOS 15 will roll out this fall on iPhone 6s and later models.
