iOS 15 Update – Everything We Know So Far!

We are about to get a prime look at iOS 15, though the full version of Apple’s operating system won’t be released until later this fall.

However, we expect the company to publish an iOS 15 preview during the Worldwide Developer Conference 2021 keynote.

That would translate to an extensive look at the features that are in store for Apple devices, including the upcoming iPhone 13.

The new version of the operating system will mark an important step for iPhones.

Apple significantly changed things with iOS 14, which brought multiple goodies to the users.

First of all, let’s talk about the release date – We believe that Apple will release iOS 15 in September this year.

However, you should stay tuned from June 7 through June 11, as Apple will likely make some announcements regarding the OS during the WWDC event.

As for the compatible devices, most sources seem to suggest that devices upwards of the iPhone 7 will be suitable.

Also, the iPhone 13 lineup will be shipped with iOS 15 straight from the box.

There may be a silver lining if you own an older iPhone – Starting with iOS 14.5, you have the choice of individually picking regular updates or security updates. The concept is that older devices could still receive security updates, even though the phones themselves can’t run a full update.

However, it’s not yet certain if that feature will allow devices that miss out on iOS 15 to keep on receiving security patches.

One of the main highlights of the update is that iOS 15 will feature more granular controls over notifications, meaning that you can set up statuses like driving, sleeping, working, and so on, to control how notification and auto-replies behave.
