Best Features of iOS 15: Focus Mode Changes When Reinventing FaceTime

 Apple released iOS 15 on September 20. For me so far, this has made the status quo on my iPhone even better.

Whether you're getting Apple's new iPhone 13 or are holding a 6-year-old iPhone 6S, iOS 15 will be available to download to your phone starting Monday, September 20. The new version of iOS has been in public beta for months, going through a variety of changes leading up to the final release. I've been testing out iOS 15's new features, and from big additions like the FaceTime call web link to friends on Android and Windows, to small changes like pinning conversations on top of the Messages app, my daily status doesn't seem to be disrupted. iPhone has been improved.

Overall, iOS 15 feels like a continuation of iOS 14, which feels like a continuation of iOS 13. These three updates are like a movie trilogy, but unlike The Lord of the Rings Sauron doesn't have an ominous eye. Your every move, just Siri. Following in the smart footsteps of iOS 13 and 14, iOS 15 lets you decide how much you want to change your iPhone experience. For example, the tab bar in Safari can be moved to the bottom of your phone's screen to make it easier to reach with one hand. If you want the tab bar to return to the top where it is from 2007, you can tap the AA button and select Show Top Address Bar.

Visually, iOS 15 doesn't change the way your phone looks, or at least not in a big way. It doesn't sound like a drastic overhaul going from iOS 6 to iOS 7. Beyond that, iOS 15 isn't defined by some huge attractive features. Instead, it is made up of hundreds of small and medium additions that add up to something more substantial. From more ways to personalize your Memojis to major visual improvements to Maps, iOS 15 is a big change to your phone. But instead of trumpeting its changes like a parade of elephants, Apple has quietly tip-toed in improvements to help you improve your phone without upsetting your current preferences and workflow.
