Official for everyone in the world, Apple’s fall software updates, iOS 15 and macOS Monterey. The two updates aren’t as bad as they used to be but Apple’s new software comes with a whimper rather than a bang.
There are two problems Apple’s annual cadence factors. The first, like this year, is that iOS and macOS are increasingly aging operating systems, with few problems to fix or missing features to integrate. Which, by the way, means there are fewer options for major upgrades than there were in the early days when the iPhone made headlines with copy-and-paste support. Apart from Apple changing its mind about how its systems work and the rules that govern it ̵̵ than third-party email and browsing applications allowed in iOS 14 – the world is no less for great additions .
The second is the fact that – because Apple has kept all its updates, big and small, to redesign the “big” version of iOS – less but the need for quality improvements is always stuck for months until the fall.
Take iOS 15, which incorporates grid viewing and the ability to blur down in FaceTime, features that are already an integral part of Zoom and Google Meet tools for setting up great virtual reality conversations. Perhaps in these it does not look like the kind of ground breaking device feature that will need to wait for a new version of iOS to be available, but Apple also saved the updates to be part of iOS 15, although they will undoubtedly have. more useful in high-risk pandemic when video communications need more speed.
