Face Time is now Available for Android or Windows
Feeling left out because you are on an Android or Windows device? Not anymore. You can now create FaceTime links in iOS 15. This means anyone with a web browser can join a FaceTime call.
- FaceTime has become an invaluable tool in helping people stay connected over the pandemic. Now, Apple aims to make that connection even smoother with updates like microphone updates to help separate the user's voice from background noise.
- Facetime will also get the Portrait Mode treatment. Users will now get to blur their background and "put themselves in focus," you know, for when you get those surprise FaceTime requests and your house isn't exactly clean.
- The iPhone will now also offer SharePlay, making it possible for people using FaceTime to also listen to Apple Music, watch a TV show or movie from Apple TV, or share their screen to view apps together, making it ridiculously easy to have shared experiences from afar.
Apple Maps Upgrades
- Users will experience significantly enhanced details in cities for neighborhoods, commercial districts, elevation, and buildings, new road colors and labels, custom-designed landmarks, and a new night-time mode with a moonlit glow
- a three-dimensional city-driving experience with new road details that help users better see and understand important details like turn lanes, medians, bike lanes, and pedestrian crosswalks.
- Those using public transit will also be able to now pin and save their favorite lines, and Maps will also notify users when it's nearly time to disembark from their ride.
