Apple’s roadmap

Bloomberg reported this week that Apple has quite a bit planned for its fall events this year. Mark Gurman reported that Apple will hold multiple events this fall to announce the iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7, AirPods 3, a new iPad mini, new Apple Silicon Macs, and much more.

Read our full coverage of what to expect from Apple this fall right here.

iOS 15 beta 6 changes

iOS 15 beta testing continued this week with the release of the sixth beta to developers and public beta users. The latest iOS 15 beta includes continued changes to the controversial Safari redesign, reversing some of the changes made to the iPhone version of Safari. Apple explains: 

The bottom tab bar has been redesigned to appear below page content. An option to show the address bar at the top is also available. 

Apple delays SharePlay

The new iOS 15 beta also disables the SharePlay feature, with Apple saying the feature has been delayed and won’t be available until a future update to iOS 15 this fall. To allow developers to continue to test SharePlay integration with their applications in iOS 15, Apple is releasing a new SharePlay development profile

We’re thrilled with the high level of enthusiasm we’ve seen from the developer community for SharePlay, and we can’t wait to bring it to users so that they can experience your apps with their friends and family in a whole new way.
