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.
