WWDC 2021  June 7th to 11th


Apple had their World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC2021) earlier this month, and we got to see a sneak peak of some of the new versions of software coming out later this year. Some of these can you read below for a more in-depth run there. They went through a lot of new features coming to each piece of software, too much to cover in a small space - but I’ve included links so you can see more for each one.


iOS 15 announced which is to include some new features such as redesigned notifications, “Focus” for reducing distractions, Spatial Audio and “SharePlay” in FaceTime calls, text recognition in images, ID cards in the Wallet App (such as adding in your Drivers Licence etc), additional privacy features and redesigns to Safari, Maps, Weather and Notes. Due to be released later this year which is normally around September/October based on previous years. 

You can read more about it here or Apple’s page here.


iPadOS 15 announced which is to include Widgets “anywhere”, the App Library, better Multitasking of Apps (including Split screen improvements), Tag support for Notes, SharePlay for FaceTime, improvements to Safari including a newer tab design, “Focus” for reducing distractions, Quick Note for system wide fast notes, Universal Control across iPad and Mac, Translate App coming to iPad and more.

Be aware of “Fake webpages” advising you need to update.

So there is a bit of a rise on the number of webpages or fake links that will try to trick you into calling a number or clicking a link to “update” some piece of software.

I’ve written a page with a bit more info on it here
