Some Apple Updates that need to happen

iOS is the driving force of our iPhones. It is at the end of the day, the thing that we use on a daily basis to check our mail, see what the weather is like, see what we have coming up for the week, and communicate with friends and family around the world.

Every year, Apple drops another version of iOS where the goal, for the most part, remains the same. Find more ways to connect to others, and find more ways to do more, by tapping less.

Personally, I found that iOS 15 was one of the best iOS releases that we had till date. I found that the operating system was fast and responsive, and a lot of the features that were added were very useful, and fulfilled the goal of connecting people. SharePlay was one of the biggest where I am able to share my content with my friends, no matter where they are in the world, and having Safari as well as iMessage work together by suggesting the links and content that was shared. Overall, I could not be happier with iOS 15, so I am really looking forward to what they might bring over in iOS 16.

While iOS 15 is great, there are definitely somethings that I would love to see in the new iOS that we are expecting to hear about in June, and release in the Fall along with the iPhone 14’s.

iMessage

I use iMessage to talk to all my friends and family everyday. It’s really clean, simple to use, but they have fun ways of communicating with animations and effects. In fact, I always prefer talking to friends and family over iMessage compared to any other app such as WhatsApp or Instagram. However, I think there are a couple of things that I would like to see changed about iMessage.

First, while I love the screen effects and text message effects, they have not changed in many years, so I think it’s about time that we have some new effects for other occasion, or just anything to put a smile on someones face. This is definitely not something that is a necessity, but more of a nice to have since it has been a while.

Second, and more importantly, I think it would be great to see additional App Support when it comes to sharing. For example, I would love to be able to send events and calendar invites that I have saved on my Apple…
