Here are some cool hidden features in iOS 15 that you might have overlooked.

The new iPhone 13 range has arrived, with improved battery life and camera capabilities. However don’t forget that the new phones come with iOS 15, and the latest software update is remarkable in its own way.

iOS 15 offers a number of new capabilities, including the ability to initiate FaceTime conversations with Android users, improved iMessage sharing, and changes to Apple Maps, among others.

Apple’s mobile operating system is accessible to anybody with an iPhone 6S model or later, even if you don’t plan to upgrade to the gleaming iPhone 13. The following are some lesser-known features of the iPhone 13 and previous iPhone models.

Hide your IP address from every page you visit.

You can hide your IP address from third-party trackers and websites with iOS 15.

You can hide your device’s IP address to prevent websites or trackers from monitoring you while you browse, which is one of the new features Apple has included in iOS 15. The goal is to strengthen iOS 15’s privacy features, making it safer to use Safari to browse the web.

Here’s how to hide your IP address from websites and trackers, in Safari on iPhone.

  1. Go to Settings, From your Home screen.
  2. Click Safari
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page until you see Hide IP Address.
  4. Select Trackers and Websites.

Schedule Notifications.

There have been moments when you’ve wanted to switch off your phone due to the annoyance of alerts. Although iOS already has built-in notification management features, the new iOS 15 adds the ability to delay and schedule non-essential alerts so that you may view them at a time that is appropriate for you.

To activate it, go to Settings and turn on Notifications and Scheduled Summary. When you enable this function for the first time, you’ll be asked to choose a group of applications and a time for the summary to appear on your smartphone. You may schedule up to 12 daily summaries to come at certain times.

Spotlight searches from the lock screen

Spotlight is a handy tool for quickly searching for and opening apps. You may now utilise Spotlight from the lock screen with iOS 15. You may search for particular material in Photos (for example, “Spain” or “New York”), or for actors or artists (for example, “google” or “India”), and receive further information such as web photos, applications from the App Store, and Wikipedia entries.

Simply slide down on your lock screen to reveal the search bar, which allows you to search for anything without having to unlock your phone. Spotlight Search is enabled by default on your iPhone.

Add background image to Safari

In macOS Big Sur, Apple provided the option to customise the start page in Safari for the first time. Regrettably, the functionality was only available on macOS. However, Cupertino is currently significantly upgrading Safari on the iPhone. With iOS 15, you can even customise the Safari app’s backdrop. Not only can you personalise the start page, but you can also choose a background picture and add additional sections to it. Here’s how to go about it.

Here’s how to make a custom iPhone Safari backdrop in iOS 15.

  1. Open Safari, On your iPhone.
  2. In Safari, create a new tab.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Edit.
  4. Toggle the Background Image toggle to ON.
  5. Select a picture from your Photo Library or press the large plus (+) button to select one of the presets.

Drag & Drop between applications

Since 2017, drag and drop has been available on the iPad, and with iOS 15, Apple has finally introduced this feature to the iPhone. It may seem to be a little change, but it is nonetheless an useful feature. Everything is as straightforward as it should be, and you can easily drag & drop content between apps.

To do the same, hold down the desired text until it turns light blue. Use a finger on your other hand to move between applications using the Home bar while still holding the text with your finger. Then, paste the floating content, for example, into the messaging app’s test field.
