iOS 15.1 is now available, and it includes SharePlay, ProRes, an Auto Macro option, and more.


SharePlay is back in iOS 15.1 after being bumped from the initial iOS 15 release. On a FaceTime conversation, SharePlay allows users to watch videos or listen to music with others while keeping the content in sync.

ProRes support

In the Camera app on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, you can take video in the ProRes format. In iOS 15.1, beta 3, the functionality was included. To activate ProRes, go to Settings, Camera, and Formats, then check the box next to ProRes. Although ProRes is beneficial for editing, it consumes a lot of storage space.

Auto Macro toggle

When the Camera app comes close to an item, you can now choose whether it should automatically transition to the Ultra Wide format. The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max’s Ultra Wide camera has a 2cm minimum focus distance and can go considerably closer to a subject while still being in focus, although it’s not necessarily the optimal format for a close-up photo. If this option is disabled, you may manually switch to the.5 view in the Camera app to snap macro photographs.

COVID-19 vaccination record in Wallet

You’ll be able to upload your immunization record to the Health app with iOS 15.1 or later. It might already be there if your healthcare provider syncs medical records with your Health app. After that, you’ll be able to add a validated vaccination record card to your Wallet app, which will include a QR code that can be scanned by any institution that wants to verify your vaccination status.

This isn’t the only method you can keep track of your vaccinations on your iPhone. If you don’t have iOS 15.1 yet, we have a feature that shows you how to properly save your COVID immunization card on your iPhone.

Unlock with Apple Watch is fixed

Many customers have reported that the “Unlock with Apple Watch” function, which allows you to unlock your iPhone using your (unlocked) Apple Watch if Face ID fails, is no longer working on iOS 15. It’s functioning again with iOS 15.1, as long as you also have watchOS 8.1. Apple also published a tiny iOS 15.0.1 update that addressed the problem.

Lossless audio for HomePod

Apple has previously stated that lossless audio support for Apple Music will be added to HomePod in iOS 15, however it vanished after appearing in the third iOS 15 beta a few weeks ago. It’s back now. The HomePod beta is only open to those who have received an invitation.

How to download iOS 15.1

To get iOS 15 for your iPhone or iPadOS 15 for your iPad, follow these steps:

  • Open Settings
  • Tap General
  • Tap Software Update

The update will appear there after a fast check of the servers, with a “Download and Install” option. To begin the installation procedure, simply tap that. The download and preparation of the update will take a few minutes, and then your iPhone/iPad will restart.

iOS 15.1 release notes

SharePlay, a whole new method to have shared experiences with family and friends via FaceTime, is included in iOS 15.1 for the first time. Other enhancements and bug fixes for your iPhone include the ability to shoot ProRes video with iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, as well as verified COVID-19 immunization cards in Apple Wallet.
