The release of iOS 15 is a big event for mobile operating systems. The biggest surprise is no inclusion of breakthrough features that makes this release stand out. This time Apple has given importance to quality-of-life updates and new features for its existing apps.
The result is a great move with no criticism. People will definitely going to take benefit from the new Focus feature. They’ll do all efforts to customize their phone to make it personalized. This year’s update is different too as no need to update to iOS 15. If you’re ok iOS 14, Apple won’t force you to go for the iOS 15 update. You’ll still receive timely security patches. Of course, users will “update” to the latest version of iOS when they purchase a new iPhone. But people who are planning to buy iPhone 13 will get iOS 15 by default.
How to install iOS 15?
Before planning to install iOS 15, simply back up your iPhone. The final release will surely not have any bugs, but losing all data in exchange for the latest features isn’t worth it.
Backing up is a simple job when done via iCloud. Open Settings. Tap iCloud. Scroll until you come across iCloud Backup and toggle it on. Tap Back Up Now to force a fresh backup. Go back to the previous page, you can turn off things you don’t want to back up. This is a simple process to back up your device.

First, connect your phone to Wi-Fi. Then Open Settings > General > Software Update. Then, tap on iOS 15 and select Download and Install. Once it is completed, tap ‘Install Now’ and from there, your iPhone will by default start updating. Once it passes through the process and the device restarts, you’re ready to use it. It’ll take some time, so avoid the process when you need to use your phone for important work.
What Features are integrated into iOS 15 Release?
1. Improved Face Time App
Apple’s video-calling app got some major transformation, making it competitive to Zoom and Google Meet. For starters, there’s a grid view for multi-person chats. There’s a Portrait mode to keeps the user’s face in focus with the feature to blur out the background. It is also possible to create FaceTime links to share and invite others. Users having links can join these calls through an Android phone or a Windows laptop. This encourages iOS app development to create new or customize existing video-calling apps matching the Face Time App standards.
