What you need to know
- Orbit has been updated to take advantage of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 features.
- The updated app supports Live Text, extra-large widgets, Quick Note, and more.
This big version 2.0 update brings with it some big changes, many of which have Apple's latest updates to thank for being possible. Examples include Quick Note support as well as an always-on display for the Apple Watch version.
Additional improvements include improved accessibility support throughout as well as changes to state restoration to make it easier to pick up where users left off last time.
The updated Orbit is available in the App Store (opens in new tab) right now. Orbit is a free download with in-app purchases available. Orbit is one of the best iPhone apps at what it does and it's great to see it continue to be refined while making use of the new tools Apple's iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS updates offer.
