Are you wondering when will Apple release iOS 15 for public? Then you have came to the right place. In this post we will tell you when you should expect iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 software updates to drop.
We will also tell you about iOS 15’s compatibility list, its notable features and more.
Apple is holding the iPhone 13 media event on September 14. The company is expected to announce the new iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 mini at the event.
In addition to new iPhone models we can also expect Apple to launch a redesigned Apple Watch Series 7 and perhaps more.
While the new iPhone and Apple Watch is exciting all Apple fans are also excited about the launch of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, tvOS 15 and macOS Monetary.
So when will Apple release iOS 15 for public?
When it comes to iOS 15’s public release, Apple should release it 1 week after the release of iOS 15 GM, which means it is highly likely that you will be able to download and install iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 on Monday, September 20th.
This would be different from last year, when Apple surprised everyone by releasing iOS 14 just 1 day after it Time Flies event.
Right after the announcement of iPhone 13 on September 14, Apple will release iOS 15 Golden Master to developers. iOS 15 GM will be a stable version of iOS 15 and if everything goes smoothly Apple could turn it into the final version and release the same build to public. If bugs are still found in iOS 15 GM, then a revised build of iOS 15 will be released on September 20th.
Right after releasing iOS 15, Apple could start beta testing iOS 15.1 with developers, and release a developer beta for iOS 15.1 on September 20th or 21st.
