Apple has released its new iOS – which is iOS 15. The software contains features that enable users to connect to the outside world more easily.
Apple had announced its new iOS 15 at WWDC – Worldwide Developers Day Conference 2021 happened in June, along with the updates in MacBook, iPad, etc.
This WWDC event happened to be virtual, but that didn’t hold Apple back. It provided an immersive design and engaged the virtual audience throughout the show.
With the new updates in iOS 15, Apple has uplifted its game in the world of OS. Whether it’s about FaceTime, Weather Apps, Safari, Notifications – Apple’s new iOS features provide users to explore more with the on-device intelligence.
Focus Mode – maintain work-life balance (New iOS 15 Feature):
This new immersive feature helps you organize and analyze daily tasks more efficiently, thus making your life more productive.
When this new iOS feature is active, it allows all your iDevices (Apple Watch, MacBook, etc.) to follow the instructions you want during your workspace that refrain you from distraction.
This new mode includes four different options:
- Do not disturb
You can also create your own focus mode by clicking the ‘+’ option. For example, if you want to go to the gym, you can add apps that won’t distract you during exercise.
Moreover, while blocking the notification from reaching the phone, it will automatically show the sender in Messages that contact is currently unavailable.
This option helps you to create and maintain a work-life balance around your environment.

You can set up your favorite contacts in a more intuitive way ever, using the ‘contacts’ widget.
With the help of the ‘Find My’ widget, you can locate your lost accessories, including Airpods, Air Tags, Apple Watch, etc. It will tell you where you lost your item, and when you are near your accessories, it’ll ring a bell on your phone. So, you can look for your item in nearby places.
