Apple further improves its technology through Apple Maps. Information like elevation data, road colors, driving direction, 3D landmarks, improved night mode, and rich labels will be added with iOS 15. An exciting feature is the new "AR walking," where users can use their phone to scan nearby buildings in the area to help the iPhone determine the precise position.
Extra features added in Apple Maps include weather warnings. The app will notify users of dangers like flash flood-prone areas and suggest alternate routes to avoid the area.
2. FaceTime Major Upgrades
Apple will also upgrade features in FaceTime through iOS 15. FaceTime will offer spatial audio, where the user could hear the speaker's voice based on their position on the screen. FaceTime will also use utility tools like grid view, calendar schedule, scheduled calls, and share links of ongoing or incoming calls. FaceTime calls can later be accessed by Google Android and Microsoft Windows users too.
1. Face ID, Facial Recognition and Digital ID
Apple also announced upgrading their Facial ID technology to recognize users even with their face masks on. Identity and security will be improved through the new iOS 15 feature that lets users carry digital versions of government-issued IDs. Apple will automatically recognize its user with the data taken from their Face ID, Facial Recognition, and digital ID.
