Are people that distracted that they need a focus mode and a summary of the crud in their feed once they're done being "focused"?
It’s a scientific fact that eleven Macrumors readers out of ten got to this article because they were distracted by a notification about it while they were trying to get work done, and now that they’ve read through the story they forgot what they were doing before they clicked. The other three users were in the bathroom.

Apple: here’s a pop up notification to tell you about the new features in iOS 15, like how you can set Focus so you’re not interrupted by pop up notifications you didn’t ask for.

First new version of iOS ever that I have no intention updating to due to the CSAM surveillance feature and lack of significant other features.

yeah, and additional "benefits" to Apple's users in the US initially exclusively (currently planned for "a later date" though ....) ?

The most underrated feature of iOS 15 is Live Text. It’s great.
Seemed like a fantastic feature until the CSAM announcement. Now it just seems like another spy vector.
