Your Memories collection in the Photos app is about to get better with a brand new look, animations, transitions, new effects, moods, and Apple Music integration. Memories will change the slideshow look and feel based on the song selection with custom filters and animations.

Add Animated Stickers to Images/Videos

Yes, with the recent update, now you can add animated stickers of Telegram on both images and videos. We all love Telegram’s high-quality animated stickers and now you can bring life to still images using these popular animated stickers. However, keep in mind, after adding stickers, images will turn into GIFs and might lose some quality. So to use this feature, just select your image/video and tap on the “brush” icon at the bottom. After that, tap on the sticker icon and add animated stickers to your media. That’s it.

Disable iCloud Private Relay for Specific Wi-Fi Connection

If you feel a slow Wi-Fi connection following the iPadOS 15 update, you should disable iCloud Private Relay for a specific Wi-Fi connection. Thankfully, Apple has added an option to turn off Private Relay for a Wi-Fi connection. Simply open the Settings app on the iPhone and navigate to Wi-Fi > Wi-Fi network, and turn off iCloud Private Relay from the following menu.

Check Media Details in the Photos App

A long-overdue feature. Apple has finally added the much-needed info button in the Photos app to check the EXIF details of any photo/video. The information includes media size, the original device on which the photo was taken, location, aperture, and more. You no longer need a third-party app or Files app hack to view the photo/video size on your iPad.

Create Custom Email Address

This is part of the new iCloud+ subscription that Apple announced at WWDC. On iPad, you can now create random email addresses to use in websites and apps. From the Settings > Profile > iCloud > Hide My Email menu, you can create and manage temporary email addresses to use. You can also set the incoming mails on custom email addresses to get forwarded to your primary email.

Use Smart Lists in Apple Reminders

The default Reminders app gets a new add-on with Smart Lists. It lets you create a Smart List with different conditions for tasks like Priority, Flag, Location, and more. Once an added task meets those conditions, the OS will add it to the Smart Lists. Getting confused? Let us simplify it for you. You can create a Smart List called Birthday and set a condition with #birthday. From now on, whenever you create a reminder for someone’s birthday, simply add a tag to it, and it will be added to the Smart List. No manual action from your side.

Enable Low Power Mode

This is yet another feature carried over from the iPhone to the iPad in iPadOS 15. Now, you can extend the battery life of your iPad using the Low Power Mode. When enabled from the Settings > Battery menu, the Low Power Mode temporarily reduces background activity like downloads and mail fetch to extend your iPad’s battery life.

Shared with You in Apple Apps

With the iPadOS 15 update, you will see a new Shared with You section in major Apple apps such as Photos, Safari, Music, and Podcast. When someone shares a web link, Apple Music link, Podcast link, or Apple TV show over iMessage, it will create a Shared with you section in the relevant app. You can easily check all the media and links shared by other users over iMessage from the ‘Shared with you’ section. Unfortunately, it only works with the Apple apps for now.
