SharePlay Returns to iOS 15.1 Main Image

Initially scheduled to be released with the most recent iOS, the SharePlay feature has been included in the beta version of iOS 15. Previously, Apple announced a delay in its rollout, promising that fans will be able to see it on their devices later in the fall of 2021. The new iOS version was released to limited use on September 21 and included SharePlay, hinting that it will likely be part of it when it is properly established. While SharePlay was not the only feature to be delayed, it was probably one of the most anticipated updates. With its help, users will be able to share activities such as video watching and listening to music during a FaceApp call. It also adds a screen-sharing functionality, which should be especially popular during the pandemic.

Another highly relevant and useful feature brought about by the new iOS edition is that users can now include their COVID vaccination cards to their Wallet after adding them to Health. This is very similar to Google’s vaccination record feature. Users will need to obtain information from their medical providers before it can be added to their phones, or turn to state medical institutions to obtain the necessary data. The feature relies on SMART Health Cards, currently supported in a number of US states and major providers such as Walmart, CVS, and more.

Of course, the fact that the feature added to beta does not guarantee its transition to the full-fledged iOS 15. Yet, it seems like Apple users have every chance of getting to share their most favored activities with their friends in the near future. The company does not give up on its commitment to release the feature “later this fall,” although it doesn’t specify any potential dates for it. The general expectation is that SharePlay will be supported. Are you waiting for SharePlay? Share your thoughts in the comments.

In iPadOS 15, this similarity will become even greater, because of improved multitasking. So, the rumor has it that the new iPadOS will look even more like a laptop. For example, the new home screen will be able to place widgets anywhere – like on its Android alternatives. Now, instead of dedicated section, you will be able to place widgets where you want them to be. Reviewed multitasking will allow your iPad to better handle multiple apps at the same...

In iOS 14.5, users for the first time got an option to block tracking within any single app. Now Google follows the same route with its mobile platform. In late 2021, Android will introduce the same possibility, though not for everybody at the same time. You won’t have to wait for the next major update to see apps ask you whether you will let them track you and access your data. All it takes is a Google Services update, and Alphabet is already working on it. So,...
