Messages in iCloud: This new update will allow users to store their messages, photos and other attachments on iCloud. The users on the platform will now be able to sync messages across all devices via sign-in access. Also, the messages once deleted on any device will be removed from all the synced iOS devices.
AirPlay 2: Airplay is Apple’s proprietary system that allows users to stream audio or video from an Apple source device to any other devices through Wi-Fi or home network.
