Home Screen enhancements

The Home Screen gains several notable enhancements, thanks to iOS 15. For starters, there’s a new default Home Screen view, complete with a pair of small widgets docked at the top. The new Home Screen view won’t be immediately noticeable unless you perform a fresh reinstallation of iOS, or are setting up a new iPhone for the first time.

While the updated default view is nice, the most noteworthy Home Screen upgrades afford users the ability to quickly rearrange pages and outright delete pages. By going into Page edit mode, users can drag and drop pages in the desired order and delete pages that have been hidden from view.

Live text

One of the most useful new features found in iOS 15 is the ability to grab text and interact with text directly from a photo or directly from the Camera app. For example, if you take a photo of a business card or a for sale sign, you can quickly look up directions, send an email, or make a phone call just by tapping the corresponding text. iOS 15 is also intelligent enough to recognize handwritten text.
