iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 are released by Apple

by - – Apple has now released the much-anticipated iPadOS 15 and iPadOS 15 software updates for all eligible apps, including iPhone models from iPhone 6s back to iPad models as old as the 2014 iPad Air 2 and 2015 iPad mini 4, following a pretty steady 3 month public and developer beta phase.

Whereas this year neither iOS nor iPadOS sees radically redesigned software, it offers the native Safari Web browser a good number of small modifications in the interface, new widgets and a re-thought-out view.

Pocket-lint has all you need to know about iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 here, so if you’re looking at that, head here.

In regard to what’s new in Safari, Apple initially tried to upgrade the entire user interface in a new kind of all-in-one task bar by shifting the URL bar from the top of the screen to the bottom.

However, following an enormous pushback from the beta community testing for the new update, most users will be used to Apple in default to reverse to the original layout, and instead offer a new option to Settings, allowing users to switch to the disputed design.

To do so, just go to Settings, press Safari and you should receive a graphic popup immediately asking what layout you want.

The improvements to Safari do not only include iOS, since an optional Safari redesign is also available on iPadOS. Initially, Apple wanted to integrate the separate tab bar with the top of the URL bar as an all-in-one unit without any difficulties, but once more, Apple received user feedback and had an option to choose the layout in the original style.

Adding widgets to the home screen everywhere and supporting Swift playgrounds are also included in other iPad OS updates, which means developers can immediately build iOS apps on an iOS.
