At first glance, iOS 15 may not seem like a monumental upgrade. But now that developers have had a chance to play around with iOS 15 betas, the forthcoming iPhone update is more compelling than you might think. For whatever reason, Apple during its WWDC keynote didn’t touch on some of the cooler features built into iOS 15. And seeing as how the iOS release is now just about two months away, we’ve gone ahead and listed a few iOS 15 features that Apple didn’t explicitly mention at WWDC this past June.
Better text selection
The magnification loupe for text cursor selection was perfect as is. But Apple a few years ago replaced it with a subpar interface. Thankfully, iOS 15 will see the return of the magnification loupe. Apple notes that users will be able to “select exactly the text you want with an improved cursor that magnifies the text you’re looking at.”
Enhanced Apple Maps features
Apple Maps is finally catching up to Google Maps in one major area: scheduling options. In iOS 15, Apple Maps users will at long last allow users to call up directions while specifying a particular departure time or desired arrival time.
Drag and drop between apps
This is a particularly nifty iOS 15 tip. The next-gen iteration of iOS will allow users to drag files between apps. For instance, users will be able to drag an image from their camera roll and drag it right into an email. This is a welcome addition to iOS and should provide mobile users with a more desktop-style user experience.
Easier iCloud backups in iOS 15
Apple in recent years has made it much easier to update to a new iPhone model. With iOS 15, it’s about to get even easier. Once this iOS 15 feature arrives, users will be able to temporarily increase their iCloud storage when transferring data to a new device. In other words, even if your iCloud storage is running low, Apple will grant you “as much storage as you need to complete a temporary backup, free of charge, for up to three weeks.”
Some welcome Safari changes
While we can’t say we’re fans of the new mobile Safari aesthetic, this is one iOS 15 tip you’ll want to be aware of. With the new iteration of mobile Safari, users will be able to “pull to refresh” whatever webpage they’re on. ReadMore
