Apple continues to update versions of iOS 14 with interesting news, which arrived this year with the new models of iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12. However, Apple engineers are already working on the new one. editing.
This is why we wanted to collect all the rumors and information that exist on the network to offer you an article in which we summarize all the news that iOS 15 could bring to the brand’s phones.
When will iOS 15 be released?
Apple has a fairly stable release schedule when it comes to iOS. Usually the main features are featured in the WWDC pre-summer edition (circa June).
Subsequently, the software is released in the last quarter of the year, coinciding with the announcement and marketing of new iPhones, which usually takes place during the months of September or October (the case of 2020).
In fact, the coronavirus pandemic made things a little different in 2020, with the iPhone event moved to October, but everything suggests that Apple will revert to the usual launch schedule for the new year 2021.
If you don’t want to wait that long, you can always sign up for Apple’s Beta Tester program, where the developer community has early access to software releases to help you troubleshoot bugs and program apps.
However, it comes with some risks and should never be used on your main device or iPhone as it might become unreliable or even stop working.
What iPhone models can be upgraded to iOS 15?
iOS 14 hasn’t ceased to be impressive, as all of the iPhones that have received the iOS 13 update have jumped on the new platform bandwagon as well. In the case of iOS 15, rumors have already started to circulate suggesting that Apple will not be able to achieve the same feat.
And is that the oldest iPhones on the current compatibility list, in terms of technology, are the original iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and the original iPhone SE. These all use the A9 processor, and it looks like iOS 14 will be the end of the line for this silicon chip.
That still leaves a long list of compatible models that will get at least an additional year of support and update, as we describe below:
- iPhone 12 Pro Max
- iPhone 12 Pro
- iPhone 12
- iPhone 12 Mini
- iPhone 11
- iPhone XR
- iPhone SE (2020)
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone X
- iPhone 8
- iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
Since the iPod Touch is equipped with an A10 Fusion processor, it is very likely that this music-oriented device will also upgrade from an upgrade to the new version of iOS 15.
What new features will we see in iOS 15?
With the introduction of iOS 15 still a ways away, there is little solid news that we can highlight about the new features that Apple will include when updating the iPhone software.
In fact, iOS 14 continues to receive cool updates as we saw in iOS 14.2, with emojis included, a distance detector with a LiDAR sensor, and other new features associated with the iPhone camera.
We searched the internet, relying on our sources, and took a look at our own wishlist to see what might happen in a new edition of WWDC 2021.
Extension of default applications
The iOS 14 version introduced a feature that Apple users have been asking for for years, with the ability to select your own default apps instead of Apple’s variants.
Unfortunately, this was not a full review as the change only applied to messaging and browser apps. We would like to see Apple expand this to at least include calendars and messaging apps in iOS 15.
So if you prefer Fantastical over Apple’s Calendar app or Signal over using Messages, that would be a dream come true. If you have not yet heard of this news, we invite you to consult the article on iOS 14 and default apps.
Bring presentation mode to FaceTime
The year 2020 will be remembered as the year in which we all use video conferencing apps in one way or another. Somehow, we were able to see the limited reach of Apple’s FaceTime platform.
So one feature Apple could improve on for iOS 15 would be the enhancements as a serious alternative to other tools like Zoom, Teams, or Skype.
With FaceTime today, if coworkers want to share their screens in a meeting, they’re out of luck. Adding it to FaceTime would make it a much simpler and more powerful option for Apple device users.
Widgets on the lock screen
Another innovation brought to iOS 14 was widgets. These have proven to be the favorites of iPhone users before, but one obvious omission is the possibility of having them on the lock screen. This would save people from having to constantly unlock the device.
Apple would improve this experience with iOS 15, to let you navigate to the location of the widget, while also giving you the lock screen itself, additional controls and information with an “ Always On Display ” mode. that many Android phones already have.
To see how the widgets on your iPhone or iPad, see our guide on how to use widgets in iOS 14.
As it is too early for the internet rumors regarding iOS 15 to have any credibility, we suggest you re-read this article after some time. We will take care of updating its content to offer you the most important information firsthand.
