Apple has began beta testing iOS 15.1 just one day after the release of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. On Tuesday, September 21, the first beta was made available to developers. The public beta tests usually begin within a day or two.
The inclusion of SharePlay is the most notable change in iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1. It was originally intended to be released alongside iOS 15, however it was pushed back to a later software upgrade. That appears to be happening sooner rather than later. It is conceivable, though, that it will be removed from the official iOS 15.1 release and pushed back again.
SharePlay is back in iOS 15.1 after being bumped from the initial iOS 15 release. SharePlay allows users to watch videos or listen to music while on a FaceTime chat with others, with content synced.
COVID-19 vaccination record in Wallet
You’ll be able to upload your immunization record to the Health app in iOS 15.1. It might already be there if your health care provider already syncs medical records with your Health app. You will then be able to upload a confirmed vaccination record card to the Wallet app, which will include a QR code that can be scanned by any organizations who wish to verify your vaccination status.
This isn’t the only way to keep track of your vaccinations on your iPhone. If you don’t have iOS 15.1 yet, we have a feature that shows you how to properly save your COVID immunization card on your iPhone.
