New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…

Original story (published on June 08, 2021) follows:

Apple WWDC 2021 was held pretty recently where the tech giant unveiled the upcoming software upgrades for the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch.

Among them, the iOS 15 update which is slated to bring a bunch of improvements to the eligible iPhone models later this year.


Now, the iOS 15 beta 1 update is out and users are already liking the improvements that it offers.

While some of its major features were already highlighted in the WWDC 2021 event, there is one small but handy feature that users are particularly liking.

As per recent reports from Reddit, the iOS 15 beta 1 update enables the option to delete apps directly from Spotlight.


Spotlight basically allows iOS users to search for apps, music, videos, podcasts, and much more. With the latest iOS beta update, the Spotlight feature just got better.

While the option to delete apps directly from Spotlight might appear as small improvement, it does come as a big surprise for those who rely heavily on Spotlight.

Apart from that, the latest iOS beta update packs features like SharePlay and Spatial Audio for FaceTime, Notification Summary, and much more.


There’s still some time before the stable iOS 15 update comes out. However, those who are eager to try the latest enhancements can go for the latest iOS beta for the time being.

Also, if you are already using the latest iOS beta update and have found a similar handy feature, feel free to drop a comment below and let us know about it.

That said, we will report back with more details as and when we get new information to share so stay tuned.
