New iOS 15 Tips

If you have upgraded to iOS 15 on your iPhone or iPad, you might want to try some of these tips. There is always something new!

Here are a few that caught our attention. We will write more posts in the future as we delve deeper into this version of iOS.

Closing Tabs in Safari

Many people do not routinely close their Safari tabs on their iPhone or iPad. This habit can sometimes result in a slower experience in Safari, and can cause problems if any of the open sites have an issue.

To see what tabs you have open, go into Safari. Tap on the overlapping boxes in the lower right corner of the screen. The number of open tabs will be displayed in the bottom center of the screen. You can close individual tabs by clicking on the x in the top right corner of each one.

If you would prefer to have old tabs close automatically, go into settings and choose a time frame.

Settings > Safari > Close Tabs and then check how long you want your tabs to remain open.

Live Text

This feature is so exciting that we wrote a whole blog post about it.

Using either the camera, or a photograph, your iPhone or iPad can recognize text and make it editable. This allows you to take text out of a picture, or from a physical document, and paste it into a note or text document and edit it there.

We have already found many uses for this feature. Let us know how you are using it.

Enhanced Privacy

Apple has continued to enhance their privacy. One of these features is built into Mail. This setting allows you to hide some of your identifying information so that it is harder for companies to track your activity via emails.

Go to Settings > Mail > Privacy Protection and turn it on.

Another area of privacy settings is in Safari. These settings are accessible by clicking on Settings > Safari and then scrolling down to Privacy and Security.


Another area of enhancement is called Focus. These features allow the user to turn off distractions, allowing them to pay better attention to the task on hand.

Focus is like Do Not Disturb but it allows finer flexibility in choosing which apps and contacts get muted, and which ones can still send notifications.

If you would like help with this process, just call or email and we’ll be happy to assist you! If you have specific questions, or if our terminology isn’t clear, please use our contact form to send us a message. Thank you!
