iOS 15: FaceTime Enhancements
FaceTime highlights the kind of renovations you’d expect for a video messaging app — FaceTime attaches a grid view that mounds chat participants in uniformly sized tiles if you’re not a fan of the app’s earlier cluttered look. In addition, spatial audio support gives people’s voices sound like they’re originating from where they’re familiarized on the screen for more realistic communications. You can also quickly switch from Voice Isolation mode to Wide Spectrum mode.

In addition, an auto-ducking feature reduces the volume of the movie, show, or song you’re sharing when the souls on your FaceTime call need to chat over it.
iOS 15: Visual Lookup & Live Text
You take a pic of something, and you’ll be ready to swipe up or tap the information key to learn more about that object. It should come in helpful when viewing statues, artwork, or historical features of interest. Live Text is the more exciting ability, and it speaks to Apple’s urge to put artificial intelligence to work in iOS 15. Live Text acknowledges Text in photos, highlighting and copying, saving it into a note or message. If the Text in issue is a sign or address, you can click it to look up a location in Maps, while a phone number will start a phone call. Photos, Quick Look, Screenshot, and Safari, will support Live Text in iOS 15.
iOS 15: New Privacy Tools
