In 2021 we have an app for quite literally everything. App for planning your holidays, booking your cab, ordering your next meal and much more.

Apple announced iOS 15 earlier this week with a bunch load of features. Ever wondered what goes behind developing these features at Apple?

Requesting a refund for an in-app purchase on Apple Store involved raising a ticket using Report a Problem page on Apple’s website. Starting with iOS 15, users will be able to request refunds for in-app purchases on the app directly.
Apple did not claim any performance or battery life improvements with iOS 15. After the entire iOS 11 fiasco, Apple has ensured that major new iOS updates don’t slow down older iPhones, which was verified with this iOS 15 beta vs. iOS 14.6 speed test. However, it’s not the same story with battery life, as evident from recent iOS 14 updates that have negatively impacted the battery life of all iPhones. So, does iOS 15 bring about any improvement in terms of battery life?
Contrary to rumors, iOS 15 has turned out to be a relatively big update for iPhones. None of the features might seem radical at first glance, but they bring usability improvements. What’s impressive is that despite so many new features, Apple did not drop support for any of the older iPhones in iOS 15. However, there’s a catch here: some of the new iOS 15 features won’t come to iPhone 6s and other older iPhones.
Apple is further building on its Find My network and bringing it to the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max with the upcoming iOS 15 update. The feature will allow one to find and track their lost AirPods.

Last year, most of the new features in iOS 14 were detailed months ahead of the release of the OS due to internal builds and screenshots making their way to the internet. This did not happen with iOS 15 this year, and not much was known about the OS before its release.
