Release date, beta, compatibility … We take stock

The highly anticipated next version of the iPhone operating system should not be available for several months. Some peculiarities of iOS15 are already starting to leak on the web, the ability to summarize already known information.

Summary

Thanks to the popularity of the iPhone, iOS remains one of the most widely used mobile operating systems in the world. IOS has been available since the very first release of the iPhone in 2007 (then called the iPhone OS) and continues to be updated regularly. It is preparing to welcome version 15. What information is already available, is the ability to sign up for a beta, and what release date can we expect for iOS 15? We take stock.

Although the next version of iOS is not expected until the end of the year, it is certain that a beta version will be made available to users. New versions of iOS are usually introduced in the middle of the year, and their beta versions are usually available in the following days. We can therefore hope for the release of iOS 15 beta around summer 2021.

Signing up for a trial version of iOS15 should be done the same way as for previous beta software from Apple. Simply register on the official Apple website and you will receive a notification on the day a new trial version is released if your device is compatible with it.

If we stick to Apple’s general schedule for a few years, the next version of iOS 15 should be unveiled this summer. New versions of the Apple operating system are usually presented at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which takes place in the middle of the year. The next edition already has a release date and will take place on June 7th, 2021.

While iOS 15 will likely launch on that date, this new version shouldn’t be available until the end of the year. This will give beta testers time to try their hand at this new iteration of iOS and report bugs to Apple.

A question that might interest many iPhone users, especially if you have an older model: is my device compatible with iOS 15? If accuracy has not yet been confirmed, it is already logical enough to believe that iOS 15 is compatible with the latest versions of the iPhone:

iPhone 13 (Coming Soon) iPhone 12 (and Mini, Pro and Pro Max) iPhone 11 (and Pro and Pro Max) iPhone X (and XR, XS and XS Max) iPhone 8 (and 8 Plus) iPhone 7 (and 7 Plus))

It remains to be seen for the older models, particularly the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus as well as the iPhone SE, which are starting to show the weight of the years. Since the last generation of the iPod Touch is relatively new (and works with iOS 14), the latter should remain compatible with iOS 15 as well.

Newsletter

If it is still a little early to know the contents of iOS 15, some information is already starting to leak on the web. Since iOS 14 was a very large update of the Apple operating system, it is likely that iOS 15 will be “lighter” in new features. The first rumors include the standard applications that it will be possible to make further changes. The interactive widgets that appeared with iOS 14 should be more customizable. We should have WWDC answer all of these questions this summer.
