What new features are expected in iOS 15?

By this time of year, we usually have quite a fewwe know about the next version of iOS from Apple, but this did not happen in 2021. However, there are some naughty rumors circulating that give us an idea of ​​what might be.

Users can now choose the default browser and mail app, and in the upcoming release, the default music app will also be customizable. Rumor has it that this trend of opening iOS to third parties will continue with iOS 15.

In iOS 14, Apple made huge changes tohome screen by presenting widgets and application library menus. With the upcoming iOS 15 software, Apple may turn its attention to looks, more specifically the lock screen, with a redesign and support for Always-on display.

Speaking of redesign, there is a good chance thatthe current Settings app will also be redesigned. As the iPhone has gotten more advanced, the Settings app has gotten more confusing, but iOS 15 might fix that.

Finally, although in 2020, widgetswere welcomed with open arms, many users complained that they were unable to interact with them. iOS 15 can put an end to these complaints by adding more functionality to widgets.
