Apple Loop is here to remind you of a few of the very many discussions that have happened around Apple over the last seven days (and you can read my weekly digest of Android news here on Forbes).
Taking a look back at another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes all the news from WWDC, the updates to iOS, macOS, iPadOS, and WatchOS, Apple’s missing MacBooks, Adobe’s Creative Cloud update, and Microsoft’s native macOS apps.
iOS 15 Refreshes Apple’s Instant Messaging Approach
Let’s start off the WWDC news with the latest version of iOS that will update the iPhone’s feature set. The fifteenth numbered version leans into the privacy changes, but also stresses messaging. FaceTime will expand out to Windows and Android; sharing media from certain apps in real time on a call for an ad-hoc watch party; and links through iMessage to specific apps can appear in those apps, such as ‘Connadh shared this news story about Duolingo’s Gaelic update’ showing up in the news app. Apple missed much of the messaging and video conferencing rush during 2020’s ‘work from home’, so this feels a bit like catching up:
“The update will give you more options for FaceTime video chat including, yes, finally talking with friends on Android. It also brings new privacy features that help protect your email and show you how often apps access things such as your camera and microphone. And later this winter, you may even be able to add your driver’s license to Apple Wallet, depending on where you live.”
