Apple has started rolling out the latest iOS 15.2 updates. As is the case with any new updates that are launched, the new iOS 15.2 includes major fixes and new features. The last update to the iOS, iOS 15.1 was launched in October 2021. The iOS and iPadOS 15 introduced the Record App Activity feature in the privacy settings. This new feature allows the users to save a summary of the sensor, data, and Internet access by apps on their devices.
Apple also made an official statement regarding the rollout of the new iOS. In the statement the company mentioned, “In iOS and iPadOS 15.2, this activity is presented in Settings in a new UI called App Privacy Report. This is a great opportunity to review the app’s sensor, data, and Internet usage.”
There are two ways to set up emergency calls, and with the new iOS 15.2 update, the users can use the auto call function for initiating an emergency call: holding the side button together along with the volume button will connect the emergency number. Pressing the side button multiple times does the same job. However, the users will not get a longer (8 seconds) countdown before placing an emergency call. The Legacy Contacts offers the users the option to let another person access their Apple ID after they die. The designated person will have access to photos, messages, notes, files, contacts, calendar events, apps, device backups, and more.
The iOS 15.2 has also added support for the Apple Music Voice Plan. It was first introduced in October, and it was priced at USD 4.99. The Voice Plan provides access to all songs, playlists, etc inside the Apple Music app using Siri.
The most important feature of the new software update is perhaps the inclusion of the “Items That Can Track Me” in the Find My App.
