What you need to know
- Apple released iOS 15 yesterday.
- It includes a new iCloud+ feature that gives paid users more security features.
- Apple has started to email customers confirming they've been upgraded to the new service.
Yesterday, Apple released its new mobile software, iOS 15, to the public after months of beta testing following its announcement at WWDC earlier this year. One of the major new features of iOS 15 is iCloud+, from Apple:
iCloud+ is free to all users who already pay for an iCloud subscription, and Apple is now confirming to customers they've been upgraded in emails sent to customers.
The email we've seen states:
The email confirms that iCloud Private Relay remains in beta, whilst Hide My Email, HomeKit Secure Video, and Custom Email Domain are all ready to go. The email also confirms that iCloud+ works with Family Sharing, so your whole family can access the benefits, and that iCloud+ also comes as part of the Apple One subscription bundle.
All in One
Apple's core services in one monthly price.
Apple One bundles together Apple's biggest and best services into a single monthly price. Coming in Individual, Family, and Premier levels, each version of the bundle lets you save money on the services and iCloud storage on offer, all of which would cost more if purchased individually.
