SharePlay has returned in the iOS 15.1 beta, as indicated by 9to5Mac, after Apple deferred the significant iOS 15 feature to “later this fall” rather than having it launch close by the OS update as planned. It’s not by any means the only feature that is hasn’t come to release yet, however it very well may be a valuable one during the ongoing pandemic — it allows you to watch videos, screen share, or listen to music with others over a FaceTime call. Its reality in Tuesday’s new beta could demonstrate that it very well may be coming sooner than later, however that is not a sure thing.
MacRumors reports that the 15.1 beta likewise allows clients to add their COVID vaccine card to the Wallet app, when you’ve originally added it to Health. Like how Google’s version of this feature works, you’ll need to get your vaccine data from your medical provider or your state’s healthcare system before you can add it to your phone. Apple says the feature uses the SMART Health Card format, which is presently supported by a handful of states and some significant vaccination providers. The list incorporates states like California, Hawaii, New York, and Louisiana, as well as pharmacy providers like CVS, Rite Aid, and Walmart.
These features appearing in the iOS 15.1 beta don’t really mean they’ll be in the final iOS 15.1 release — all things considered, SharePlay was presented during the iOS 15 beta, yet was subsequently taken out. In any case, Apple does in any case say that SharePlay will ship “later this fall,” and there’s just such a lot of time left for that (furthermore, it would be a bit odd in case it was removed from another beta). The vaccine card feature will be included in an “upcoming software update,” as per the organization, so it’s conceivable it’s farther.
It additionally might be a bit before we see iOS 15.1, considering that iOS 15 was simply released yesterday (iOS 14.1 came about a month after iOS 14). Be that as it may, if this early beta is any sign, it very well may be carrying some decent new features with it when it appears.
