iOS 15.1 is now available to everyone, along with the first version of macOS Monterey.
This is the complete list of changes that Apple indicates that it has iOS 15.1;
The most important innovation brought by iOS and iPadOS 15.1 is called SharePlay. The function offers the possibility to share streaming content in a FaceTime chat with friends and acquaintances. Apple had already presented the feature at the WWDC developer conference in June. However, the introduction was initially postponed in late summer and is now available.
iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max owners can choose the ProRes video format after installing iOS 15.1. This should record moving images in particularly high quality and with the best possible color fidelity. If you have one of the two iPhone 13 Pro models with 128 GB of storage space, you can record the videos with a maximum of Full HD resolution. Devices with more storage capacity also offer the option to select 4K.
- SharePlay is a new way to share synced FaceTime experiences with content from the Apple TV app, Music, and other compatible App Store apps.
- Shared controls allow everyone to play content, pause it, rewind or fast-forward.
- Smart volume automatically lowers the audio of the currently playing movie, TV show, or song when a person is speaking.
- Apple TV offers the option to view the shared video on the big screen while still using the FaceTime call on the iPhone.
- The screen sharing function allows everyone on a FaceTime call to view photos, surf the internet, or help each other with whatever they need.
- ProRes video capture with iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
- Setting to disable auto switch to macro when taking photos or videos on iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
- Support for COVID-19 immunization records allows verifiable vaccination information to be added and displayed from the Apple Wallet app.
- Support for Mandarin Chinese (Taiwan) in the app and translation function integrated throughout the system.
- New automation triggers based on current reading from a HomeKit-compatible lighting, air quality or humidity level sensor.
- New actions already programmed that allow you to superimpose text on images or GIF files.
This release also fixes the following bugs:
- The Photos app might incorrectly indicate that the storage was full when importing photos and videos.
- The Weather app might not display the current temperature at the user’s location, or it might display the colors of animated backgrounds incorrectly.
- Audio playback from an app could be paused when locking the screen.
- The Wallet app might quit unexpectedly when using VoiceOver with multiple passes.
- Available Wi-Fi networks might not be detected.
- Updated battery algorithms on iPhone 12 models to better estimate battery capacity over time.
