At Apple's annual WWDC 21 Developer's Conference that kicked off yesterday, they announced some cool new features that are coming to the next iOS update. These updates were created with the pandemic in mind, and include some fun, new contactless features.
We can expect some updates to FaceTime's video calls and new digital keys will be a feature in Apple Wallet. When you can be with family and friends you can connect on FaceTime in a new and fun way. During calls you will be able to watch movies and listen to music together. Plus those who don't have iphones will be able to hang out too, as Apple will soon allow those with Android phones and Windows users to join in on FaceTime calls.
Starting this Fall, you'll be able to store your driver's license or photo ID in Apple Wallet in encrypted form. That will come in very handy on your next vacation because you'll be able to use it at TSA security checkpoints at the airport.
Look for iOS 15 to be released this fall.
