Monday comes the iOS 15 de Apple, the annual fall tradition that brings new features to Apple’s iPhone ahead of the launch of its latest smartphone. Apple unveiled the first details of iOS 15 during an online speech in June during its Worldwide Developers Conference.
The context: Last week, the tech giant said the free software update will be available starting September 20 by unveiling the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 Pro during a virtual event at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.
- The release of iOS 15 comes a week after Apple released an emergency software patch, iOS 14.8, for iPhones and iPads.
- Apple said the new operating system will be available on September 20, days before the September 24 launch of the new iPhone 13 devices.
- Last year, iOS 14 was available on September 16. But in 2020, Apple released the iPhone 12 in October.
And now that? Most years, the new software is available at 10 AM PT or 1 PM ET, but many people rush to download it as soon as the update is available, which can lead to longer download times.
- The best way to check is to go to Settings, then General, and then Software Update. Your iPhone will tell you if iOS 15 is ready to roll.
- When available, connect your device or make sure it has 50% battery or more. Then tap “Install Now.”
- This update dates back to iPhone 6s, so if you have that iPhone model or any later version, you’re good to go.
- Some older phones should allow users to update by connecting to a laptop and through iTunes.
