IOS 15 is now released, lots of things to be aware of

AppleVis has a great writeup found by the article title Apple Releases iOS 15 and iPadOS 15; Bringing Focus Modes, Live Text, and Enhancements to Multitasking, Notifications, FaceTime, Safari, Privacy, and More that covers podcasts, blog posts for the blind and deaf blind, as well as Ipad specifics.

I did read the post The Accessibility Bugs Introduced and Resolved in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 for Blind and Low Vision Users which details the bugs AppleVis knows about that might impact users. The one that might be of concern details the wallet and multiple items and only having access to the first one, but the others may be of concern in the critical section if you use those options.

Under moderate, there are 9 potential issues including Voice Over not speaking apps while in the app switcher. It does it for a couple of them, but more than so many, it has problems. I try only to have two or three open at any given time, but this one does concern me.

If you use a braille display, the 2nd item in the list may be of importance.

Need to edit an alarm? You’ll probably have to delete it and recreate it, says the post. I personally don’t do this often but knowing this is annoying but at least we can work around it. I’ve not used alarms much since the Pandemic, and mine are pretty set anyway.

There are 12 different items under minor that might be of concern for people. I’m not sure what might be of importance to you, I didn’t see anything that might be a problem for me but we’ll see.

There are other bugs that have been reported but have not been seen that is also part of this post.

I’m only seeing this blog post titled What’s New in iOS 15 Accessibility for Blind and DeafBlind Users and as I write my own blog post, I’ll have to give this a perusal to see what is up that might be of value.


The main blog post linked above talks about how to update your IOS device, and I’ll probably do it after all of my meetings for the week conclude. I’d rather be stable on a version that I don’t have to worry about a lot of things while I deal with TSB, PSAC Wednesday night and the board meeting on Thursday.
