  • iOS 15.1 is now available for all compatible iPhones.
  • The latest update brings some new features, fixes and improvements.
  • Two much awaited features are also finally here with iOS 15.1.
Apple has released iOS 15.1 and for iPhones, the first major update after iOS 15. The new iOS update brings some new features, fixes and improvements to iPhones. There are two important features that arrive with the new update and were highlighted by Apple during the iOS 15 announcement. These two features are SharePlay and ProRes.

SharePlay as the name suggests, lets you share and watch content together on FaceTime. You can share content from Apple TV, Apple Music, Fitness+ and other third-party compatible apps. The second feature is exclusive to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro, and it lets you record videos in the ProRes format to get the best quality possible.

Here’s a quick guide on how to use SharePlay and ProRes on iOS 15.1.

SharePlay

Once your iPhone is updated to iOS 15.1, start a FaceTime call.

Then open Apple Music or the Apple TV app, and play something.

The song or video will now be shared with others on the FaceTime call.

But the other person will need to join SharePlay to watch or listen together.

Also, playback controls like play, pause, rewind or fast forward will also be shared by everyone.

You can also tap the button on the top right corner to share your entire screen.

ProRes

To shoot videos in ProRes format, go to the Settings app on your iPhone.

Then go to Camera > Formats and select ProRes under Video Capture.

Open the Camera app and tap ProRes to record your video.

There are certain things to note about ProRes video recording on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. You can record ProRes videos up to 4K at 30 frames per second (fps) but only on the 256GB, 512GB and 1TB storage models. The 128GB storage model supports only 1080p video recording at 30 fps. Videos shot in ProRes format are also 30 times larger than HEVC files so you would require ample device storage and iCloud as well. A minute of 10-bit HDR ProRes is approximately 1.7GB for HD and 6GB for 4K.
