iOS 15 Features

Apple kicked off its big WWDC 2021 keynote on Monday with the iOS 15 news fans and developers wanted to see most. Craig Federighi ran through the main iOS 15 features during the press conference, with Apple releasing the first iOS 15 beta to developers as soon as the event ended. As always with WWDC announcements, Apple didn’t have enough time to talk about all the new features created for this year’s OS updates, and the same goes for iOS 15. Federighi & Co. only addressed some of the major changes coming to iOS 15 on stage, listing other notable features in the recap that appeared at the end of the iOS 15 segment.

Now that iOS 15 is available in the wild, early adopters have found all sorts of novelties that Apple didn’t announce. One of the gems is a multitouch trick that all iPhone users need to learn about as soon as they make the jump to iOS 15, a new drag-and-drop functionality that works across apps.

It’s quicker than Copy & Paste, and it’s a gesture we’ve come to take for granted.

Pulling drag-and-drop off on mobile devices is a bit trickier because it involves using multiple fingers to drag and drop items between apps. There’s no mouse or touchpad to help you out, and the iPhone’s screen is limited in size, making the gesture cumbersome.

Dragging and dropping images and text between iPhone apps is now possible in iOS 15, with iOS veteran Federico Viticci showing the feature off in the following video:

Viticci moves an image from the Photos app to Mail and then does the same thing with a text selection from Safari. It all…
