Apple WebKit confirms iOS 15 and macOS 12 updates


We’re ending the first quarter of 2021 and still, no information regarding Apple’s next software conference has appeared. As far hardware goes, the company will unveil a bunch of new iPad Pros in a near future. Meanwhile, we’re expecting the WWDC 2021 to happen sometime in the next quarter where we will know more details about Apple’s upcoming software. Today, all of sudden, the names of iOS 15 and macOS 12 have been confirmed thanks to info leaked from Apple WebKit.

Now, the OS offers extensive support for ARM-based applications and even allows developers to port certain iPadOS apps to the computing platform. We expect the new macOS version to further establish this cross-compatibility between the two platforms and will bring even more incentives for developers to build ARM-based apps for Macs.

iOS 15 will bring major improvements in comparison to iOS 14

As far as iOS 15 is concerned, the new mobile operating system will bring major improvements over the last version. The company will expand the usability of the Widgets feature with more interactive features. Further, it will expand the number of default apps that can be changed based on user’s preferences. The security will also receive special treatment and the Settings UI will receive a long-awaited overhaul. Last but not least, we expect iOS 15…
