iOS 15 Is Here: Everything To Know And How To Update Your iPhones

iPhone IOs 15

Apple has announced a new update for its mobile device and iPad, the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15.

The launch came as no surprise.

During the launch event of its iPhone 13 and other products, Apple announced that September 20 was the launch date of a new software update.

However, the release of this update is incremental to past Apple updates.

Compared to previous iOS updates, what iOS 15 brings is minimal, and there is little change to point to in terms of performance and battery life.

Others had brought much-needed changes like iOS 10 making third-party apps hook into his OS, iOS 12 changes battery life and performance, or iOS 13 bringing dark mode.

Still, it’s a significant update because the features it comes along with would make a difference irrespective of our little it is.

Some of the features include the ability to FaceTime Android owners, store your driver’s license in your digital wallet and some major Apple maps upgrades.

However, this is just a launch update, and so other amazing features of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 will be running along later.

As of fall, Apple would launch the SharePlay feature under the iOS 15 update.

Also, the Apple Maps feature has been limited to some particular locations in New York, London, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

Soon, it would spread to more locations.

You can begin to access the updated software feature as soon as Apple sends you a notification.

However, if Apple is yet to notify you to update your device iOS to iOS 15, you don’t have to worry.

You can do it yourself.

How to update  your iOS to iOS 15 without seeing Apple’s notification

All you need to do is follow the steps below.

  • Go to the device setting of your iPhone. Before doing so, make sure your files are properly backed up to avoid losing them.
  • Then in settings, go to  “General” and the “Software Update”.
  • From there, you would see the update, and if you didn’t see it, it means it isn’t available fr you yet. So tap on “Install Now” to install the update.

  • You would be asked to agree to the “Terms and Conditions” regarding the Apple update. After, wait till the update loads finish.

The implication of the update

Considering how this update affects you would only matter if you are an iOS user.

If you aren’t, then it doesn’t mean anything to you.

As an iOS user, you would need to update your device to enjoy the features it came with.

However, it would be best if you waited till much later when the update is fully available.

The launch is still in beta testing; there tends to be some bug fix needed at that stage for the outcome.

Waiting a while before updating the iOS 15 update would prevent bugs and issues, as seen when the iOS 14 was launched.
