The developer preview of iOS 15.5 Beta 1 has been released. And this time, the upgrade seems to include fewer new features than the before. However, there are substantial modifications, which will be made available in subsequent releases and detailed in the release notes. The following following features are the most notable thus far.
They discovered references to the future Apple Classical app in the system’s code. It is likely to be a classical music-focused addition to Apple Music’s streaming service. The platform is believed to be built on the concepts of Primephonic, a startup acquired by the California IT giant in August 2021.
Then, within Apple Music, the “apple” corporation claimed to “offer a fresh experience for connoisseurs of classical compositions.” Most likely, this will be implemented in a separate utility, in which they will keep the original Primephonic’s huge library while adding unique features and upgrades. Lossless audio, spatial audio technologies, and a more user-friendly interface are just a few examples. Apple Classical should be available with the release of iOS 15.5, which is planned in the coming months.
Request and Submit buttons have been added to the Apple Pay Cash area of the Wallet app. They make it simple to manage money right from your wallet. The functionality to upload a driver’s license into Wallet will be available soon (however, the feature is still relevant only for the United States). In addition, Cupertino is planning a redesign of iTunes Pass gift cards. They’ll be known as Apple Balance.
Bug fixes and other advancements
The WebKit engine will be used to develop another feature in Safari. It works similarly to macOS in that it allows you to receive push notification from web applications and webpages. For each site, the browser will have a dark and light theme setting. For example, if the system has a dark preset enabled, the user can select a light look for certain web sites.
The remaining adjustments were all related to privacy. You can prevent online services from accessing your data from the cloud storage in the iCloud settings. iCloud+ subscribers can now use the Private Relay feature, which was previously in beta. It will enable the gadget’s user to mask their IP address from websites and service providers.
In terms of bugs, the issue with the iPhone options’ memory area has been resolved. Loading information about the device’s storage always took several minutes, if not longer, for some users. In the Apple Health app, they also repaired the faulty search option.
