With the help of iOS 15, you can share your screen in FaceTime.


One of the most striking new features in iOS 15 is the ability to do more in FaceTime than just have in-person meetings.You can now "share" your screen and media (such as music and video).To do this, just start a FaceTime call and tap the "Share Play" button in the upper-right corner of the screen.In the pop-up window, tap Share my screen.

Anyone else in the call can see your screen, but if you want to share media like music, photos, or videos, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to go to your iPhone's home screen, then launch the app you want to share.

Note: If you are sharing a subscription, it must be shared only if the other party on the call is also subscribed to the app or service.

2. Copy text from photos with Live Text

Using the "Scan Text" button in the pop-up toolbar, you can insert text using the camera.


You can now point your camera at real-world text (such as text in a book, road sign, or restaurant menu) and paste it into a document.It won't be just a picture of the text, but fully editable text.

To use the Live Text feature, open the app where you want to display the text (such as an email), then tap and hold where you want to place the text.The toolbar popup should appear.Click the "Scan Text" button, which looks like a line of text enclosed in parentheses.The camera viewfinder will now appear at the bottom of the screen.Position the camera to capture the text you want to insert - you should see a bracket around the text.Tap Insert and the text should appear in the document.

You can also simply open any image with text in the Photos app, tap the text in the image, drag the highlighted field to contain all the text you want, then tap the highlighted field, then tap the popup menu "Copy" in .

3. Drag and drop between apps

This might take a little practice.


You can now drag content from one app to another.For example, you can drag and drop photos into Messages in the app.Unfortunately, doing this requires some practice and finger dexterity.

Say you want to insert a photo into a message.Open the Photos app and find the photo you want to share.Tap and hold on the photo, then start dragging it until it moves a bit in the app.Now, without lifting that finger, use another finger to swipe up on the app to return to the home page.Open the Messages app (while continuing to hold the photo with your original finger), and finally release the photo in the message you want to paste it into (you should see a green plus sign in the upper right corner of the photo when it's safe to let go).

4. Understand how your app is spying on you

Apple is doubling down on privacy, and now you can access an informative App Privacy Report that shows you how apps on your phone use permissions you allow, such as location, camera, microphone, and other services.

You need to opt-in to the App Privacy Report.To do this, launch the Settings app and tap Privacy, then scroll to the bottom and tap App Privacy Report.Tap "Open App Privacy Report" and it will start collecting information about your app.Please check back here anytime for the report.

5. Get AR walking directions in the map

Apple Maps can now provide walking directions in augmented reality.

Apple Maps has been catching up to Google Maps, but with iOS 15 it's taking a leap forward in some important ways.One of the most interesting updates is that you can get walking directions in augmented reality.As you walk, hold up your phone so it can see nearby buildings, and Maps will overlay street names and walking directions on a live video of the route.

To get your AR walking directions, plan your route in the usual way and select the walking instructions after tapping the directions button.Tap "Go", then tap the AR cube button to the right of the map.

6. Let Windows and Android users join a FaceTime call

For the first time, non-iOS users can participate in FaceTime calls.To let users on other devices talk, start a FaceTime call, then tap the Create link at the top of the page.When the "Share" popup appears, send the link to the recipient in any way you like, such as via email or text message.The recipient just clicks or taps the link, and you'll get a notification on your iPhone that someone wants to join your FaceTime call.

7. Use focus to filter notifications

In iOS 15, Apple introduced the concept of Focus, which lets you filter notifications based on your activity and the level of distraction you're willing to tolerate.For example, a sleep filter might restrict all notifications, while "personal" might allow notifications from specific apps and phone calls from important contacts.

To start using Focus, swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen, then tap Focus in Control Center.There are six default focus filters to choose from, and if it says "Getting Started," tap it to configure which notifications are allowed when it's on.If configured, tap the three dots, then tap "Settings" to modify it.

When you want to focus, just tap the focus filter you want to enable.To turn it off again, open Control Center, then tap the active Focus button to disable it.

8. Use Tab Groups in Safari

Browsers on laptops have had tab groups for years, so now is the time to create them in safari for iOS.To create a tab group, launch Safari, then tap the Open Tab button in the lower-right corner.Tap the bottom center menu indicating how many tabs are open, then tap "New Empty Tab Group".Name the group and save it.

Any new tabs you open will belong to this group, but you can repeat the process to create separate tab groups, each with their own collection of tabs.

9. Change the size of text in any app

You can change the size of the text globally, or just the currently applied text size.

As you probably know, you have some control over text size in iOS, so if you want bigger text, you can instantly enlarge it anywhere on your iPhone.But with iOS 15, you can change the text size on an app-by-app basis.

Launch the Settings app, then tap Control Center.Tap the plus sign next to Text Size to add it to Control Center.Now, when you're in an app and want the text to be bigger, pull down the "Control Center" from the top right corner of the screen and tap the "Text Size" icon.Make sure the toggle at the bottom is set to Current Apps and not "All Apps," then drag the size slider up or down until you're happy.

10. Put the Safari address bar back on top

You can now choose to place the address bar at the top or bottom of the screen in Safari.

Here are the features you might want to try, just to restore Safari to the way it was before the iOS 15 update.You may have noticed that Safari's address bar and menu are now at the bottom of the screen (this should be made to make it easier to access).But it looks a little weird, and if you can't quite get used to seeing it on the bottom, it can put it back on the top.Click the AA button to the left of the address bar, then click "Show top address bar" in the menu.

The above is a brief introduction to some iOS 15 features that will help you better understand and use your own iPhone.
