These are the facility consumer options that we have to see if Apple reveals the subsequent model of iOS at WWDC in June.
If the final 10 years are any indication, Apple will reveal the subsequent model of its iOS working system in June at its online-only WWDC. At present, there are no strong rumors on options in iOS 15 but, however listed here are some issues I want Apple would come with within the new replace.
1. Tremendous-tune Do Not Disturb
I obtain a number of notifications. Whether or not from emails, social networks, Slack or messaging apps, my display is continually filling up with messages, reminders and breaking information alerts. Fortunately, there is a Do Not Disturb mode in iOS that may silence all these notifications whereas I am sleeping or on a Zoom name, however what about after I need to get one class of notifications and never others?
It might be nice if we might fine-tune Do Not Disturb and classify some apps as work or private, and arrange instances to get notifications from sure apps at sure instances, however not others.
For instance, I would love to show off Slack and work electronic mail notifications after my work day is full. Conversely, I additionally do not need to be bombarded with TikTok and Fb notifications whereas I am making an attempt to focus.
It might be nice if I might permit sure textual content messages (both from particular person individuals or with explicit phrases) at night time too, the identical method that you could permit cellphone calls from sure individuals to interrupt by way of the Do Not Disturb barrier.
Come on Apple–it’s time to get our notifications below management.

2. Enhance Siri
I principally make the most of Siri, Apple’s “good” voice assistant, for 2 issues:
- To inform me the climate.
- To set timers.
That is principally all I discover her helpful for. Nevertheless, I take advantage of Amazon’s Alexa continuously, whether or not to take heed to music, activate lights or unlock the door.
I am positive I might use Siri for all these issues, however the Amazon Alexa ecosystem is a lot simpler to make use of that I merely gave up on utilizing Siri for something apart from quite simple duties.
I notice that Apple needs to maintain every thing personal and I respect the thought, however handing my life over to Amazon to maintain observe of simply appears simpler. That mentioned, it could possibly be smarter. If I activate the lights on each time I get dwelling, could not Siri determine that out and do it for me routinely? I should not must manually arrange a routine for that.
It might even be good if Siri might discover my routines on the pc and assist me there too. Once I sit down at my laptop computer each morning at 9 a.m. and fireplace up Spotify, Mail, Fantastical, Safari and all my different apps–couldn’t Siri do all that for me? After which begin closing issues down at 5p.m., like I do on daily basis?
Computer systems are imagined to make life simpler. When does that begin?
3. Enhance autocorrect
OK Apple, I will inform you one thing that has been irritating iPhone customers since time immemorial: nobody ever needs to put in writing the phrase “ducking.” Whereas unnecessarily correcting profanity has been an issue for the reason that first iPhone got here out, it appears that evidently autocorrect is getting worse, not higher.
Google has all method of autocorrect and phrase completion built-in to Gmail, however none of that’s obtainable in Apple’s electronic mail or messaging apps. I believe we will do higher right here too, Apple.
