In a report released this morning, Bloomberg’s Mark Gourmet said customers should expect tighter privacy controls, iPad multitasking updates aimed at attracting advanced users and new notification modes. The iOS Inbox notification banner is thought to have been redesigned, with a greater focus on auto-response actions. There will also be interface updates for Apple TV and Apple Watch.
Bloomberg previously said that the iPadOS 15 update will allow users to place home screen gadgets anywhere, such as the behavior of the iPhone 14 on iOS 14
In terms of privacy, iOS 15 will obviously have a new control panel that will highlight how applications use customer data. This sounds like it will build on existing application tracking transparency policies introduced as part of iOS 1
As customers and technical reviewers demand ways to get more performance out of their sleek new iPad Pro, Apple is preparing to prepare a home screen update and update multitasking.
Bloomberg says Apple is planning a new multitasking design that will “make it easier to manage multiple applications at once.” According to the report, Apple intends to make the iPad “more attractive” for advanced applications.
IOS 15 notifications are reported to allow users to set status (such as sleeping, working, driving) and have notification alerts to behave differently for each mode. Incoming notification banners will also receive a new user interface design on both the iPhone and iPad, with a new focus on auto-reply features.
tvOS for Apple TV and watchOS for Apple Watch are described as receiving “improvements” in the user interface and health tracking. Bloomberg says it expects the new version of macOS to be insignificant, following a user interface overhaul last year with Big Sur.
Like earlier reports from Joanna Stern of the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg says it will focus on new features for the Health and Messages apps.
