iOS 15.1 fond rouge

IOS version 15 is available since September 20, 2021. We saw here how to install this major update of iOS and there what are the main new features.

A few days later a first beta version appeared for iOS 15.1, followed by a second three weeks ago, a third two weeks ago and a fourth last week. That’s not all, an RC beta has been tested since last night. This does not bring any noticeable changes besides bug fixes and security improvements apart from a function SharePlay well and truly functional this time around.

Otherwise, be aware that iOS 15.1 should bring the following new features:

  • SharePlay: new function to share experiences with several, each on their iOS device. This includes Apple Music and Apple TV + for example
  • Wallet: possibility of integrating the American equivalent of the health pass
  • Apple Watch: Fixed the bug that prevented iPhone 13 users from unlocking their machine with Apple Watch while wearing a mask. See here the details about this feature, problematic for once for owners of one of the new iPhone
  • Auto-macro on iPhone 13 Pro / Pro Max: new setting to enable or disable auto-macro mode for photography, found in Settings> Camera. In iOS 15, the latter automatically turns on when the target of the photograph is at a distance of 10 cm or less from the iPhone
  • Video capture in ProRes: support for this new video format is supported on iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro. To record in ProRes video, you must activate the Apple ProRes option found in Settings> Camera> Formats
