Your iPhone will soon receive an operating system update. Apple’s new iOS will arrive next week, the tech giant announced in its first event of the year. iOS 15.4 has seen five betas and introduces AirTag anti-harassment alerts, a gender neutral voice option for Siri, new emoji, Face ID updates and the long-awaited arrival of Universal Control. The beta version of iOS 15.4 has already been released, and a final version of the operating system will be available as a free update next week and will be preloaded on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro in their new green variantsas good as latest iPhone SE.

As the name suggests, iOS 15.4 is the fourth major update for iOS 15which was released with the iPhone13 in September These updates, which began in December iOS version 15.1, added more features to Apple’s iPhone operating system, and improved existing ones. iOS 15.4 will follow iOS 15.3.1, which was released last month to fix a security flaw in iPhones and iPads.

As with all beta operating systems, we recommend download only on a test device, instead of your primary iPhone. Beta builds are for stability and bug testing, which means they’re not optimized like the released builds – you’ll likely experience shorter battery life and app instability.

What is the release date of iOS 15.4?

Apple hasn’t announced an exact release date for iOS 15.4, but the company said the update will be available as a free update next week. The new green iPhone 13, alpine green iPhone 13 Pro, and new green iPhone SE will ship with iOS 15.4 preloaded, according to Apple.

How to Download iOS 15.4 Beta?

You must first register for Apple Beta Software Program. During the program, download apple configuration profile. Then you can find the latest beta version by going to Settings > General > Software update and select Download and install. Again, we only recommend this for secondary and test devices due to the buggy nature of beta testing.

What is Universal Control?

Universal Control lets you use other devices as second screens, moving content seamlessly between them using a single device. This highly anticipated feature was originally announced as is part of macOS Monterey, but has been delayed in the fall, with a new timeline pointing to “this spring”. Universal Control appeared in the iOS 15.4 beta and will be released in public beta with updates to Monterey OS 12.3 and iPadOS 15.4.

Can I use Face ID with masks?

Apple is updating its Face ID feature to use while wearing a mask. Since the feature uses a smaller part of your face to verify your identity, you’ll need to be more specific about the angle you’re holding your phone at when using Face ID. Your phone will even let you know if it needs you to look more directly at the screen. The updated feature should work for people who wear glasses, but it won’t work with sunglasses.

What new emojis are coming?

If you’re the type of person who prides themselves on the creative and fun use of emojis, you’ll love iOS 15.4. to have 37 new emojis in the update, including new options for pregnant women, hands forming a heart, a greeting, and — my favorite — a lip-biting emoji. These were revealed last fall and also include Molten Face, Tearful Face, Bird’s Nest, Coral, Lotus, Low Battery, and Beans.

Another feature included in the update is the ability to copy text from objects using the camera in the Notes or Reminders apps. And as ZDNet noted, iOS 15.4 beta too fixes a bug related to Siri interaction recordings.
