iPadOS 15 Beta 5 – What’s New? | New Larger Icons?

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great day! So apple just released the iPadOS 15 beta 5 update and they actually made some nice changes for everyone!

silva here with another video and apple
00:03
released ipad os 15 beta 5 to all
00:06
developers and most likely tomorrow to
00:08
all public developers to try out but
00:10
today i do definitely want to check out
00:12
what ipad os 15 beta 5 has in store if
00:14
there’s any changes anything physical or
00:16
tangible or if it’s mostly bug fixes
00:18
although we do have a couple of things
00:19
which did actually kind of bring us back
00:22
aka larger icon sizes which is cool to
00:24
see on the ipad again but without
00:26
further ado let’s figure out exactly
00:27
what’s going on with ipad os 15 beta 5
00:30
and again sorry for the echo we’re still
00:31
kind of building the studio over here a
00:32
little bit and little by little the
00:34
audio should get a little bit better but
00:36
let’s get into it
00:44
okay so let’s hop right into this video
00:46
everybody so the first thing that we’re
00:47
gonna see is actually let’s go into the
00:48
images because i took a screenshot of
00:50
this we go into the images we’re gonna
00:52
see the size of this ipad os 15 beta 5
00:54
update so i don’t know if apple meant to
00:56
do that on purpose but we have
00:58
888.8 megabytes in order to install this
01:00
so give yourself you know about two gigs
01:02
of storage in order to get this
01:03
installed correctly and again we’re
01:05
dealing with beta 5
01:06
and if we go out of here go back into
01:08
the settings go into general we’re going
01:10
to find out exactly what version we’re
01:12
on so we want 15.0 if i bring this up we
01:15
are on 1985318f
01:20
and i do believe that the last version
01:21
we had was actually h so again we’re
01:22
going down little by little to ideally
01:24
get that you know cba and then that rc
01:27
edition which is that release candidate
01:29
when apple changed it up i believe last
01:31
year from the gold master or grand
01:33
master to the rc edition and that’s what
01:35
we’re dealing with so we are on like i
01:36
said beta 5 version f
01:39
so again there weren’t too many new
01:41
features that came with this update
01:42
again we’re dealing with a beta 5 so not
01:44
too many things are going to change but
01:45
one thing that did happen is i don’t
01:46
know if you guys can tell but my actual
01:49
icons are bigger and the reason they’re
01:51
bigger is because if you go into
01:52
settings go into the home screen and
01:54
dock you now have the ability to use
01:56
large icons again down here which is
01:58
awesome to see
01:59
so if you click on this you can see that
02:01
my icons are now back to normal which
02:02
are small which is why i’m going to
02:03
probably keep them just because that’s
02:05
how i like it but if you want them big
02:08
boom they’re now a lot bigger and one
02:09
thing that i did want to check out with
02:11
these new larger icons is how apple
02:14
actually restructured the grid so when
02:15
you do have widgets you’re going to have
02:18
a four by six icon grid layout so you
02:20
can see you have three here three here
02:22
so you can probably fit two more here
02:24
but if you don’t have any widgets then
02:25
you’re actually still with a five by six
02:27
so if you don’t have any widgets on the
02:29
screen on the home screen then you can
02:30
actually add five total rows and six
02:33
columns versus when you do have widgets
02:35
you’re going to be able to do
02:36
four total rows and six columns that’s
02:38
just something that i did notice that
02:40
somebody actually asked about on twitter
02:41
so there’s your answer another tiny
02:43
little update was actually on the little
02:45
camera icons so if you guys compared
02:47
this little camera icon to beta 4 and
02:49
below you actually used to have a little
02:51
shutter button something very subtle
02:52
nothing too too crazy but it’s a nice
02:54
little change inside of the control
02:56
center for both ipad and iphone and then
02:58
also we did get a bunch of new splash
03:00
screens so i took screenshots of them if
03:01
we check these out we now have a what’s
03:04
new in maps so you have interactive
03:05
globe discover the natural beauty of the
03:07
earth with a stunning new interactive
03:09
globe all new city experience so explore
03:11
cities like new york and los angeles
03:13
with amazing land cover and elevation
03:15
details i might actually try this new
03:16
city experience out because i will be in
03:18
the new york city area very soon and
03:20
then you have finally immersive walking
03:21
direction so get where you’re going step
03:23
by step so you can view all the stuff in
03:25
the real world
03:27
and then you also got a splash screen
03:28
for photos so you have a shared with you
03:30
moment so see relevant shared photos
03:32
memory so you can now discover new music
03:34
for the memories so i know that
03:36
apple releases memories like little
03:37
music videos and they put their own
03:38
music behind it and you can decide which
03:40
songs you want they added a bunch of new
03:42
ones and then finally have even more
03:44
information about that image or that
03:45
video so find out where the photo was
03:47
taken their camera settings and the
03:48
objects and the people around them so
03:50
again they’re just adding more and more
03:52
functionality and again more statistics
03:54
and data behind everything that you’re
03:56
doing which i’m totally okay with
03:58
another thing that i did notice is if
03:59
you go into settings and then if you go
04:01
down to safari the new thing that we got
04:04
last beta update so beta 4 was this new
04:07
compact tab bar and then the separate
04:08
tab bar so compact was what we had
04:10
originally when ipad os beta first got
04:13
released so you can see
04:14
nice and normal right there but then if
04:15
you get out of it go here turn this on
04:18
that means that the url bar is now
04:20
sitting above your tabs right so one
04:23
thing that i did notice inside of the
04:24
new settings tab is if you scroll down
04:27
and keep going down there’s now an
04:28
accessibility setting down here inside
04:30
of safari normally to get accessibility
04:32
settings you go into accessibility but
04:34
here it says show color in tab bar so
04:37
i’m not 100 sure what this does i think
04:39
it makes the tabs a little bit darker
04:40
and lighter so if you look at it here
04:42
they look like they’re
04:44
a little bit lighter but then if you go
04:46
and actually press on the
04:50
then if you go and actually do the show
04:51
color in tab bar
04:54
it looks like they’re a little bit
04:55
darker i mean correct me if i’m wrong
04:56
i’m not 100 sure what that’s doing quite
04:58
yet but it’s something to take a look at
05:00
and then another thing that i noticed
05:02
within safari is if i open up espn and
05:05
refresh it it shows that i’ve actually
05:07
taken a quick note before so i can just
05:09
tap on here and see when i did that when
05:11
i added it so you can see i had a july
05:13
21st as a little show off to show off
05:14
ipad os 15. but i think that’s cool so
05:17
every single time you open up an
05:18
application or open up a safari web
05:21
portal or website that you’ve already
05:23
taken a quick note of or bookmark inside
05:24
of your quicknote it’ll show you a
05:26
little
05:28
quick note setting right here on the
05:29
bottom right which i kind of like just a
05:31
little reminder that it’s something that
05:32
you’ve jotted down before so maybe you
05:34
need to figure out why you jotted it
05:36
down
05:37
also shout out messi look at that
05:39
science to your contract with psg and
05:40
we’re number 30. interesting and that’s
05:43
pretty much all the changes that we
05:44
noticed inside of ipad os 15 beta 5 i’m
05:46
sure we’ll find a couple more so stay
05:48
tuned for a follow-up video but i did
05:50
want to check out actually battery life
05:51
and i want to see how much battery was
05:52
actually used because it wasn’t used too
05:54
too much over the last 10 days again
05:56
that was moving we were doing a whole
05:57
bunch of stuff so there wasn’t too many
05:59
days where a lot of screen on time
06:00
happened so we’re looking at two hours
06:02
and 32 minutes of screen on time and yes
06:04
there was a lot of peacock being watched
06:05
look at 12 hours and 42 minutes takes
06:07
about 55 of my battery so we can go to a
06:10
day like let’s say here where we’re
06:12
doing five hours and 18 minutes of
06:13
screen on time but i only use 50 battery
06:16
right so again if you really want to get
06:18
that 10 hour battery life and all you
06:20
want to do is like watch peacock and
06:21
watch netflix which i highly recommend
06:23
peacock they have a great library of
06:25
just different shows and movies and
06:26
things like that like modern family
06:28
parks and rec the office list goes on so
06:30
big fan of peacock as you can see but
06:33
you can see that we definitely could
06:34
have gone at least a 10 hour day if all
06:35
we were doing was watching videos so
06:37
really just depends on what applications
06:38
you’re using how often you’re using them
06:40
and i always recommend going here going
06:42
to your 10 day average and seeing which
06:44
applications were sucking up the most
06:45
battery 40 minutes on netflix was
06:47
thirteen percent three and a half hours
06:49
on peacock with 75
06:51
and then i know things like lumafusion
06:53
take up way more battery and things like
06:54
that so on the day that we were using
06:55
lumafusion we were actually plugged in
06:57
so it doesn’t take into account the
06:58
battery usage but again use this to
07:00
really hone in on what’s taking up a lot
07:02
of your battery what is in what you can
07:03
get away with using you know very
07:05
minimal battery and things like that but
07:07
that’s going to do it for this view
07:08
let’s get out of here and go to the
07:09
normal view
07:10
so like everybody saw there weren’t too
07:12
many tangible changes again we are on
07:14
ipad os 15 beta 5. that means we’re
07:16
getting closer and closer to that final
07:18
gm or rc edition that release candidate
07:21
that apple’s probably going to give to
07:22
every consumer in mid to late september
07:24
when the new iphones drop again in mid
07:27
to late september hopefully supposedly
07:29
they might get pushed back to october
07:30
but i hope that doesn’t mean they’re
07:31
going to push back ios and ipad os 15.
07:33
but overall the beta program has been
07:34
extremely stable even since beta 1 beta
07:36
5 is now the most stable that we’ve seen
07:38
so far now to the point where i’m
07:40
running ios 15 beta 5 on my iphone which
07:42
is my main camera it’s my main phone
07:44
it’s my main everything and i usually
07:46
wait for the public release to actually
07:48
update that one but i decided hey ipad
07:50
os 15 you know betas one through four
07:52
have been doing great let me add it to
07:53
ios so i do give a recommendation if you
07:55
guys want to try it out again if you
07:57
guys use it on your main device it
07:58
sometimes it does restart sometimes some
08:00
apps need to get reset but again i
08:02
haven’t lost any data nothing
08:03
detrimental has happened to my ipad
08:05
experience my ipad os experience while
08:07
being on the beta program so if you guys
08:08
do want to try it out by all means give
08:10
it a go but like we saw a lot of these
08:12
changes gonna be back end bug fixes a
08:14
lot of optimizations to make sure that
08:15
we’re getting ready for that september
08:16
release we saw a couple of tangible
08:18
changes but as the betas move forward
08:20
we’re gonna see less and less of those
08:21
and then we’re gonna have to wait until
08:23
15.1 to see anything big actually happen
08:25
i bet you it’s going to be released 15.0
08:28
you know in late september and then
08:29
we’re getting a 15.0.1 update because i
08:32
bet you for some reason there’s gonna be
08:33
a ton of bugs when it first releases and
08:34
apple usually follows that mantra with
08:36
releasing a quick iteration right after
08:38
to fix everything that happened to
08:39
everybody else but that’s gonna do for
08:41
this video
