iOS 15: Your phone is full of hidden features

If you’ve recently upgraded to iOS 15, here are some tips and tricks you may not be aware of. When Apple releases a new iOS update, it usually does a wonderful job of highlighting its most popular features. With iOS 15, Apple touted its Do Not Disturb replacement, as well as upgrades and additions to FaceTime and Maps but there are some secret or hidden features that the company either didn’t mention or didn’t talk about at all.

The update offers new features and content to the vast majority of iPhones, including many older models, as well as controversial design changes. Here’s everything you need to know about iOS 15 and its subsequent updates, whether you’re intending to buy a new iPhone 13 or keep your older iPhone model.
