iOS 15.1 also brings the verifiable Covid-19 vaccination cards in Apple Wallet app, but this feature is likely not going to be available for India because the government never partnered with Google or Apple to share APIs of its Aarogya Setu or Cowin app, which would have allowed iOS and Android users information related to Covid more conveniently on their devices and without needing separate apps.

For problems with weather, photos, and wallet apps, iOS 15.1 update brings in fixes. To help provide better-estimated battery capacity over time, iPhone 12 users get battery algorithm updates. The Wi-Fi networks not appearing in the settings bug has also been fixed.
