Three months after Apple introduced iOS 15, the final public version of the operating system has begun rolling out and is available for download to global users with compatible devices.
iOS 15 is being rolled out to users in batches by Apple. In other words, in case your device hasn’t received notification of the new iOS update yet, be patient as it will be available soon.
iOS 15 has officially been released to global users.
To know if your device has received the new update, users can navigate to Settings > General > Software Update. The iPhone will then automatically search for the update and let the user know if it’s available.
One point worth noting, unlike previous updates, iOS 15 is not a mandatory upgrade for users. That means users can keep using iOS 14 for as long as they like, but still receive future security patches.
iOS 15 includes a number of exciting new features with one of the biggest improvements related to Notifications with comprehensive improvements. Firstly, new notifications use much more prominent app icons. A new feature called Notification Summary is also available, which is basically a place where unnecessary notifications are sent from apps that users don’t care about.
Many new features have been implemented to iOS 15.
The iOS 15 update also brings improvements to FaceTime. One of the highlights is Voice Isolation that helps filter out background noise. There’s also spatial audio support, a new grid view, and live portrait mode support.
Other features include augmented reality Apple Maps views, support for UWB cards and keys in Apple Wallet, system-wide translation, and a redesigned Weather app with additional functions.
Eligible iPhones for iOS 15 include iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE (2016), iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone SE (2020), iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPod touch (7th generation).
iOS 15 will be officially released by Apple on September 20, but when is the specific time?
