  • 1. iOS 15

    1.1 The first introduction is FaceTime, which supports spatial audio, allowing you to chat with your friends as if you were in the same room.



    Apple also brought Voice Isolation technology to FaceTime, which can use machine learning to shield environmental noise and put human voices first. You can also use the portrait mode to blur the chat background, or use the SharePlay sharing function to listen to music, watch a movie, or share the screen together. Anyone participating in the SharePlay session can play, pause, or jump.



    1.2 iOS 15 has added a new "focus mode", which can filter notifications and apps based on the user's focus needs, and can provide suggestions for the user's environment (such as work, sleep, etc.).



    1.3 In iOS 15 notifications, contact photos have been added, and the app icon has been enlarged to make it easier to distinguish.


    1.4 The camera app adds live text support, which can capture text in photos.

    macOS Monterey focuses on enhancing the multi-device collaboration function. The new version of macOS has introduced the "Universal Control". You can use the same set of keyboards and mice, or the same notebook touchpad, to easily switch operations on multiple Mac computers, iPads, or drag and drop files.  



    Now, AirPlay can support the presentation of iPhone, iPad movies, games and other content on Mac devices, and can also act as their speakers. The "shortcut" function finally logs into the Mac, bringing a series of preset shortcut options to the Mac, which can easily share files, make GIFs, and so on.


  • 4. watchOS 8

    watchOS 8 makes Apple Watch more usable. After adding the keys of home, office, hotel, etc. to the Wallet app, you can tap Apple Watch to unlock it. Some American users will be able to add their driver’s license or ID to the Wallet app later this year.


    The new version of watchOS also brings more sports modes, enriching sleep monitoring functions and portrait dial functions. When exercising, you can also turn on the focus mode and focus on exercising.



  • 5. Health and privacy

    In terms of health, in addition to adding new features to watchOS, Apple also brought 20 new data trend analysis to the health app.


    According to Apple, more than 37 million people worldwide need treatment for falls each year. So when you walk, Apple cares about you. Through the "walking stability" function, the iPhone can use the built-in motion sensor and its own algorithm to calculate the user's balance, stability, and coordination, and reduce the risk of falling.


    In terms of privacy features, Apple will use mail privacy protection features to prevent senders from using invisible pixels to collect user information, and Safari browser can use machine learning to prevent trackers.


    Apple also provides an App privacy report, allowing you to view the permissions requested by each app in the past 7 days, including storage, photos, camera, microphone, and contacts. iCloud+ adds iCloud Private Relay network privacy service, hidden e-mail service, and expands the HomeKit secure video recording function, all of which are free upgrades without additional fees.
