Apple’s iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 are lastly right here, however not the entire options introduced at WWDC have made it alongside them. We seemed via Apple’s product pages for every OS to seek out the options which have but to indicate up on iPhones and iPads, akin to SharePlay, improved AirPod Discover My help, Common Management, and extra. Apart from Common Management, which isn’t for iPhones (but), each function listed is lacking from each platforms.

Maybe essentially the most distinguished lacking function is SharePlay, which lets customers watch movies or take heed to music with buddies on a FaceTime name. Apple warned us (and builders) in regards to the delay after eradicating SharePlay from beta exams, however it’s nonetheless a bit awkward given how important the function checked out first. Its delay is worse as a result of it’s holding different options again — Apple lately introduced that Group Exercises for Health Plus is on maintain till SharePlay comes out.

Apple additionally says that higher Discover My help for AirPods isn’t coming till later this fall. The function was introduced at WWDC, with Apple saying that a few of the gadgets in its headphone lineup are getting an AirTag-like proximity view. The AirPods Professional and Max will be capable of hook up with the Discover My community, making them simpler to seek out even once they’re not bodily with you. As somebody who’s presently lacking a set of AirPods (and whose hope of discovering them is draining just like the earbud’s batteries), that is most likely the delay that hurts essentially the most.

What I wouldn’t give…

The App Retailer’s in-app occasions function, which can exhibit issues like in-game occasions, dwell video streams, and different limited-time options, can be not right here but. It’s labeled with the identical asterisk as the opposite options, saying that it’s “coming later this fall.”

iPad customers may even have to attend for the incredible-looking Common Management function, which seamlessly permits you to share a cursor between Macs and iPads. It lacking the launch shouldn’t be a shock: not like SharePlay, Common Management didn’t present up within the betas, and the function additionally requires the not-yet-released macOS Monterey.

In fact, it’s value mentioning that two of those options could possibly be ready on new {hardware} — one other Apple occasion this fall appears probably, with predictions specializing in new MacBook Execs and AirPods. As I attempt to remind myself, rumors must be taken with a grain of salt, however it is sensible that Apple will wait to launch a brand new model of macOS together with new {hardware} if it’s actually that shut.
