As expected, Apple took the virtual stage at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference to unveil its latest iPhone operating system, iOS 15, highlighting all the exciting new features that it will be packing in this year.
Although Apple has segmented its operating systems to the point where iOS 15 is really iPhoneOS, it also still provides the core of iPadOS and also numerous features that cross over into tvOS, watchOS, and macOS. So, it’s no surprise that Apple led today’s presentation with iOS 15, announcing improvements to features like FaceTime, Messages, Maps, and more that will operate across all of its other devices as well, and even onto the web.
As usual, Apple is releasing a preview of iOS 15 today for registered developers, which if past experience is any indication, is not going to be for the faint of heart. A public beta will follow in July that should be a bit more polished for early adopters, while everybody else will be able to get their hands on iOS 15 this fall — most likely in September. While you’re waiting, however, you can read on for 12 cool and exciting things that we can expect to see when iOS 15 finally lands.
