The update also brings new emoji like faces, hand gestures, and household objects to iPhone and iPad. If you want to share your screen and media content with others (shareplay), you no longer have to open the Facetime chat app first, but can start such sessions directly from the respective app.
Anyone who has not yet been offered the iOS update to version 15.4 should proceed as follows: connect the iPhone or iPad to the charger, activate WLAN, go to “Settings / General / Software Update” and then tap “Upload and install”.
