‘Shared With You’
A new systemwide feature will make it easier than ever to collect and find the things that your friends share with you via Messages by surfacing them in the appropriate apps.
For instance, a new Shared With You section in Safari includes all the web links that your friends have sent you, from multiple conversations, gathering in one place, and tagged with the sender’s name and photo. The same also holds true for Apple Music, Podcasts, Apple News, and the Apple TV app.
It works for photos too, but these go a step beyond, automatically integrating relative photos right into your Photos timeline. There’s a Shared With You section in the “For You” tab that shows everything, but iOS 15 will try to pick out the photos that it thinks you’ll care about and show them as if they’re part of your library. This will include things like photos that you’re actually in, or even those taken at places that you also happened to be.
You can also pin important shared items in the Messages app to make sure you can easily find them later, and from the Shared With You section in each of Apple’s apps, you can tap on the sender’s name to bring up the original conversation where it was sent without leaving the current app.
