Apple has recently updated its iOS 15 dedicated page to show that its Find My network support which was initially coming for AirPods Pro and AirPods Max has now been delayed and will arrive “later on this fall”. This all means that the feature will not be rolled out alongside iOS 15 but will come in later update.
The company did not provide any reason for the sudden decision to delay the feature, however in line with that, several other iOS 15 features will also not be available until later this year such as Apple’s SharePlay, Legacy Contacts and the the ability to add a driver’s license or state ID to the Wallet app. Meanwhile, last month the company also stated iCloud Private Relay as a beta feature last month.
