Will iOS 15 look a lot like iOS 14? We aren’t yet sure.
Apple’s iOS 14.5 update is finally here, with new features including the ability to unlock your iPhone with Face ID while wearing a mask, stop apps from tracking you for advertising purposes and choose from four Siri voices (here’s how to download iOS 14.5 now). The next (likely smaller) iteration, iOS 14.6, is also currently in public beta. But that’s not stopping us from looking ahead to the next brand-new version of the iPhone operating system: iOS 15. As usual, we’ll expect a range of new features in iOS 15, building on iOS 14’s upgrades such as home-screen widgets and new camera tricks. We’ve also got a pretty good idea of when to expect the new OS to be released.Here’s every rumor about iOS 15 we’ve heard so far and every educated guess we can make, including when it may be available to download, and what new features we may see.
iOS 15 release date:
September is likelyApple typically reveals new versions of iOS at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Last year’s virtual WWDC started on June 22, and we got our first look at iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and MacOS Big Sur. This year, WWDC 2021 will again be all virtual, and will take place June 7-11.After the new iOS is announced, it becomes available to developers for testing and, usually later in the summer, as a public beta.
The final version of iOS 15 is likely to launch in September, alongside the iPhone 13. Even though last year, the iPhone 12’s release was delayed to October due to the pandemic, we still saw iOS 14 released in September. So it’s a pretty good bet that iOS 15 will follow the same schedule.
