Augmented reality

The new version of ARKit 1.5 will allow developers to place digital objects not only on a horizontal surface, but also on a vertical one. This means that you will be able to interact with posters and drawings using your smartphone. More advanced technology will make augmented reality even more interesting.

Battery (beta)

The new version of the operating system features a system settings section where you can check the battery capacity and see if it needs to be replaced. In addition, you can now disable the option to force a decrease in performance due to battery wear and tear.
