A Personalized Lock Screen Experience

The Lock Screen features have made it easier to get information at a glance, such as upcoming calendar events, the weather, battery levels, alarms, time zones, Activity ring progress, and more.

Live Activities is a new feature that helps users stay on top of things that are happening in real time, such as a sports game, workout, ride-share, or food delivery order, right from the Lock Screen.

To activate a Focus, users can simply swipe to the corresponding Lock Screen. With Focus filters, apps can display only the content that is relevant to a user’s Focus

iCloud Shared Photo Library gives families a new way to share photos seamlessly with a separate iCloud library that up to six users can collaborate on, contribute to, and enjoy.

Users can choose to share existing photos from their personal libraries, or share based on a start date or people in the photos. A user can also choose to send photos to the Shared Library

Additionally, users will receive intelligent suggestions to share a photo that includes participants in the Shared Photo Library.

Users can edit or recall recently sent messages, recover recently deleted messages, and mark conversations as unread so they can come back to them later.

Updates to Message

Now users can schedule emails ahead of time and are even given a moment to cancel delivery of a message before it reaches a recipient’s inbox.

New Tools for Mail

Live Text uses on-device intelligence to recognize text in images across iOS, and it is now expanding to include video.
