Apple, one of the world’s leading mobile and technology companies, updates its iPhone software often. The latest updates bring some cool new features, new controls, and a few fixes here and there. All of this makes iPhones really fun to use and in high demand among the public.
The tech firm recently released its software version 15.2 after a long period of beta testing. The new software has some really cool features that we’ll talk about here. For starters, the company is offering a new Digital Legacy program. This new feature will allow the user to designate a few people who will be able to access their phone’s data in the event of their death, while no one else will be able to access the data. Although we know that Apple has always been concerned about the privacy of its users, none of us have seen it come to such extremes, however, it is for our own good.
Next, the tech company launches an app privacy report that lists all the apps a phone has, what data permissions they hold, and what other websites they are connected to. This will give users a clear idea of which app is using which data and where it is supposed to send it.
Apart from this, a feature for Apple Music and a fix for iPhone 13 macro mode have also been released in the software.
Other than that, the company takes significant steps towards child safety. Previously, Apple scanned photos sent to children before they went to the cloud. Now the company will scramble any messages it finds explicit and sent to a child’s phone. It will inform children that the company believes this may be harmful content and that they should be under adult supervision if they feel threatened.
The company in iOS 15.2 has also made changes to Safari and Siri that will redirect users to genuine and authentic resources if the search is for child sexual abuse material (CSAM).
Also, what I feel is one of the most thoughtful features from Apple so far is override authenticity. The company, in its parts and service history feature, will let users know if the repair they got was genuine or not. More often than not, when you go to get something repaired on your iPhone or even to get some basic service, the store owner may trick you and put in an inauthentic part, claiming that it is genuine. The company in its settings will now notify users if the repaired part was genuine or not.
The company is doing well and has come a long way in releasing some great devices and unique features, and it still has a long way to go.
