In addition to major updates to FaceTime, enhanced on-device intelligence, and more ways to explore the world using apps such as Maps, Weather, and Wallet, iOS 15 will also introduce a premium version of its cloud storage and cloud computing service called iCloud+ that carries a variety of new premium features. These include Hide My Email (users can share unique, random email addresses that forward to their personal inbox), expanded HomeKit Secure Video support, and a new internet privacy service called iCloud Private Relay that encrypts all traffic leaving a user’s device when browsing with Safari.
