Apple won't force updates to iOS 15 from iOS 14

Apple didn't share a release date for FaceTime on the web, but it could arrive with the release of iOS 15 this fall.

WWDC is Apple's annual developers conference, and it is typically focused on software, with Apple expected to unveil iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS 12, watchOS 8, and tvOS 15. Apple is introducing a new FaceTime feature called SharePlay, which lets you watch movies, listen to music, and share your screen in a FaceTime call. "You can update to the latest version of iOS 15 as soon as it's released for the latest features and most complete set of security updates". The down side is that it seems like you'll still need to use an Apple device to start or schedule a FaceTime call.

Now Apple will bundle notifications - except for messages - in one notification summary that will be delivered whenever you decide you want to see it.

If using your iPhone becomes overwhelming due to the constant barrage of notifications from all the work and personal apps you use, iOS 15 will likely be a game-changer. When you turn on do not disturb (DND) mode on your device, your status will automatically be displayed in the Messages app. If you have DND turned on and someone messages you, they'll receive a reminder saying that you're busy at the moment. The company has also added voice isolation which ensures that the microphone prioritizes the user's voice during a call and reduces distracting background noises.

One of the best things about the Focus feature is that it will provide intelligent suggestions based on various factors like your current location or the time of day to help you focus on the task at hand. And when Focus is blocking incoming notifications, a status that the user is not reachable is automatically shown to others in the Messages app.

Apple hasn't yet detailed when iOS 15 will be publicly available, but traditionally the new version of iOS rolls out alongside new iPhones in spring.
