    This iOS also increases Apple’s Communication Safety in Messages feature. It was first introduced in the United States to prevent youngsters from viewing or sharing nudity-containing photographs. It now includes Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. According to The Apple Post, Apple announced the additional features in the iOS 15.5 release notes available to customers in certain countries.

    In addition to Communication Safety, the beta version of iOS 15.5 had references to enabling support for applications with “external purchases.” This might potentially allow developers to divert users to third-party pricing platforms to pay the subscription amount.
