The promo video features dozens of Memojis with a text bubble that reads, “who’s ready for next-level updates?”
Apple revealed iOS15, which includes spatial audio for FaceTime – it’s going to make your friends sound like they’re sitting in different places around you.
The mic will also have a voice isolation feature that blocks out ambient noise and makes the speaker’s voice sound “crystal clear,” Apple said. You can also switch between that and ‘wide spectrum’ which would take in the noise around you.
FaceTime will now come with ‘portrait mode,’ blurring the background slightly and keeping the focus on you.
Now, you don’t need to meet-up for movie nights with friends. FaceTime will have a feature called SharePlay to watch a show or movie in sync with whoever you’re FaceTiming.
Apple also maximized the ‘do not disturb’ function on iPhones by now allowing users to select what they need to ‘Focus’ on: Either ‘personal’, ‘work’, or ‘sleep.’ You can also set it so anyone who texts you knows you’re on do not disturb mode.
Anyone who has hundreds of photos saved will appreciate the new ‘Spotlight’ feature, which can now search for text within photos and pull up exactly what you’re trying to pull up.
In the last Apple event, the company debuted several new products including AirTags and redesigned Macs.
