The initial iOS 15 developer beta has been available for two weeks, and I have a lot to share after some extended hands-on time with this massive release. iPhone users are in for a treat thanks to such features like tag support for the Notes app, Focus modes with customizable Home screens, and major updates to Accessibility. Watch our hands-on video walkthrough as we explore more than 300 of the top iOS 15 features, and be sure to subscribe to 9to5mac on YouTube for lots of additional iOS 15 coverage in the coming days and weeks.
As usual for a major iPhone software release, iOS 15 has tons of new changes and features, but in this post, I’ll highlight a few of my favorite standout additions for iPhone users. After reading, be sure to take some time to watch our hands-on video as we deeply explore the various parts of iOS 15. Below I’ve included time stamps to make it easier to navigate through the video and watch only the portions that interest you.
Home Screen page management
iOS 14 introduced the ability to hide Home Screen pages, and iOS 15 builds on this foundation. Users are now allowed to rearrange pages directly from the page editor similarly to the way that individual apps are rearranged on the Home Screen. In addition, individual pages can now be outright deleted, with all apps on that page remaining in the App Library.
