Few new features with iOS 15.3
After delving into this iOS 15.3 beta, the site says that Apple has changed the wording regarding the newly launched child safety features, slightly revised the Podcasts app, and changed some text regarding automatic downloading of magazines. in Apple News + for offline reading. This is only a first beta, it will be necessary to see if the following ones will add other functionalities.
The fact that iOS 15.3 is (obviously) not a big update is hardly surprising. This version should see the light of day in early 2022. And as we know, Apple has a habit of offering a “big” update in the spring. For 2022, it will most likely be iOS 15.4.
One of the main features of iOS 15.4 is expected to be the Universal Control feature. Apple presented it at WWDC, it was supposed to be available with iOS 14 in September, but it was pushed back for the first time for the end of the year. And recently, Apple announced a new postponement, this time with availability in spring 2022.
Regarding iOS 15.3, when can we expect the beta for developers and public testers? It should be a matter of days. Apple released the first beta for macOS 12.2 yesterday. We imagine that the one for iOS 15.3 will quickly follow. Ditto for watchOS 8.4 and tvOS 15.4.
