Apple has finally introduced SharePlay, one of the key features in its new iPhone operating system, in its latest update.
This feature allows people to simultaneously watch content like movies or even workouts in a FaceTime call. It was announced in the summer, but Apple said in August that it would be delayed.
Now it comes to iOS 15.1, which is newly available to download for iPhone and iPad.
Devices with the new update can initiate FaceTime calls and then watch movies or TV or listen to music together. It can also be used with Apple’s Fitness+ for remote simultaneous workouts.
Third-party apps can also integrate the feature.
The update was released at the same time as the new macOS called Monterey. It also includes support for SharePlay.
SharePlay isn’t the only feature coming with the iOS 15.1 update. Apple has also released ProRes for the iPhone 13 Pro, which allows the phone to record video in a very high-fidelity – but much larger format, which is used in a variety of professional contexts.
The update brings with it a number of other minor additions, including changes to the Home and Shortcuts apps.
The update can be downloaded on any supported iPhone or iPad by going into the Settings app, clicking “General,” and selecting the Software Update option. The phones will also prompt their users to install it.
Apple also released updates for the HomePod and HomePod Mini, which eventually add support for lossless and spatial audio.
