Privacy was a major focus of iOS 15. Apple is determined to enhance the security of users’ data by giving them more control over their information.
In iOS 15, speech recognition is now done on the device itself. The Mail app’s privacy protection prevents a user’s IP address from falling into Deepweb databases that expose data leaked through security holes.
iOS 15 will also introduce something called an App Privacy Report, which will allow users to select which apps will be able to access specific permissions that expire after 7 days, so the user can decide whether to give the app full access to those in the future.
Apple’s cloud storage service will change its name to paid subscribers and be renamed iCloud Plus.
It will allow users to access some unique features such as an extra layer of privacy that prevents websites from accessing the user’s real IP address.

news for photo app
The Photos app on iOS 15 will become even more interesting – this is because users will be able to find photos directly from the Spotlight search.

Apple will include in Photos a new feature called Memories that will allow users to create slides from their photo collections, add music, and create a kind of “soundtrack album.” A new way to share memories of your travels, who knows?

New services for Wallet
The Wallet app on iOS can act as a key to some cars, hotel rooms (for corporate partners), badges and even save identity documents, making it easier to check-in or undergo security checks, for example, while traveling.
The original iOS browser, as in macOS 12, has been completely revamped with a more modern design. The title tab has been moved to the bottom of the screen and will automatically disappear when the user scrolls, allowing more space to enjoy browsing.
Moreover, the browser will gain the ability to create groups of tabs and work with extensions, just like in the desktop version.
Apple Maps works
iOS 15 has brought Apple Maps closer to Google Maps in terms of ease of use. Now, it will be possible to explore navigation methods even in Globe view (just like Google Earth).
Details such as claims, bike routes, traffic jams, and new routes are also highlighted. Those who use public transportation on a daily basis will also be able to select their preferred lines to know exactly when they get off.
Apple Maps now also adopts augmented reality technology, allowing, for example, to use the iPhone to survey buildings and find improved routes to a particular destination.
shared with you
This is another feature that will allow the user to more quickly find multimedia content on iOS. Anything sent to you by people you know will be more accessible.

VoiceOver improvements will make the iPhone experience easier and easier for people with disabilities.

Search tools, App Store, Today, Sleep, Game Center, People and many other apps have been improved with interesting improvements to make the user experience more intuitive.
