One of the perks of owning an iPhone is that you get all of the latest features and security updates as soon as they’re available. While Android users have to wait for Google to roll out new features beyond just the Pixel userbase, Apple users can get their hands on new iOS features right away.
If you’re eager to tear into the new iOS 15.5, you’re not alone! Before you do, let’s go over some of the most notable features that will be available on your phone now. Here are some of the new features you can expect in iOS 15.5.
Apple is rolling live baseball into its offerings on Apple TV, and it will support this initiative with its SportsKit app, too. The new iOS update features a slew of small upgrades to SportsKit that will get it ready for Apple’s rollout of live baseball coverage.
Many sports fans are excited about this change because it will allow them to watch baseball games without bending over backward to find which cable station is carrying which game. Fans have grumbled in recent years that it’s becoming difficult to watch both in-market and out-of-market baseball games without paying for expensive home cable packages.
The Apple Cash card is a handy way for iPhone users to pay for goods and services without carrying their wallets around. These secure payments are a major selling point for Apple’s new phones.
The new iOS update gives Apple Cash users some small quality-of-life upgrades. Now, there are “send” and “receive” buttons present in the app, saving users a few clicks and making it easier to share money with friends and family or receive payments. These small quality-of-life changes might not sound like much, but they’re enough to make the Apple Cash app that much easier to use.
Listening to podcasts is a great way to expand your knowledge and pass the time. It’s also a great way to fill your phone’s storage space and run out of room for music and photos. If you’re sick of your podcasts cluttering up your phone’s internal storage, then you’re going to love this next new feature.
The new iOS update gives iPhone users more tools to control their storage and when their phone will download and delete their podcast episodes. You can access these from within the app once you’ve downloaded iOS 15.5.
