Now the cat is out of the bag. As expected, Apple announced the release date for iOS 15 at the special event for the iPhone 13. Users no longer have to wait long for the iPhone update. GIGA reveals when the download will start.
Update from 09/14/2021: Apple has just announced the date for the release of iOS 15 at the special event for the presentation of the iPhone 13. Users will be able to download the update for their iPhone for free on September 20, 2021. As expected, the download in this country should start in the early evening hours.
As Apple promised in advance, will iOS 15 can be installed from the iPhone 6s (Plus) upwards and therefore have the same requirements as iOS 14.
It is now clear: Apple will almost certainly present the iPhone 13 at the Apple event on September 14th and announce the release date for iOS 15 on the other. For the latter point in time are therefore already two possible dates for the release of the iPhone update predictable.
iOS 15: Two release dates are conceivable
If Apple does it like last year, iOS 15 will be available for download just one day after the September keynote. Ergo: This would already be on Wednesday September 15th the case. However, this very tight time window in 2020 was the exception.
Traditionally, Apple usually releases the update shortly before the new iPhone generation goes on sale. And here the rumor mill agrees. After Apple presented the iPhone 13 on September 14th, the first pre-orders will be accepted on September 17th. Deliveries will start on September 24th. As a result, the release of iOS 15 would be in said Week from September 20th at. Either way, we no longer have to wait long.
If you like to use FaceTime, you will be very happy about the upcoming update to iOS 15. The reasons for this are seen in the video:
Old iPhones are also supported
Anyone who is already using iOS 14 on their iPhone can be happy, because iOS 15 is compatible with all Apple phones that are compatible with the previous version. Even an iPhone 6s (Plus) from 2015 will still be able to use the upcoming update. However, will usually not all new functions supported by the old hardware. For example, the “Live Text” feature (text recognition in images) requires an iPhone XS or newer.
