You can download Apple’s first iOS 15 developer beta right now

iOS 15 beta

Apple pulled back the curtain on iOS 15 during the WWDC 2021 keynote address on Monday, and although this isn’t going to be quite as significant of a leap forward as iOS 14 was, there are more than a few reasons to get excited about the next big update for the iPhone. You can read more about what Apple announced right here, but here are some highlights.

First of all, we should point out that all of the devices that were supported by iOS 14 will be supported by iOS 15 as well, so if you were able to update to iOS 14, you’re in the clear for at least one more year, even if you’re still using an iPhone 6s Plus, an iPad Air 2, or an iPad mini 4.

As for the new features, iOS 15 is upgrading FaceTime with spatial audio, a grid view, Portrait Mode, and SharePlay to share music, movies, and more during video calls. The new Focus feature lets you make custom modes to decide which notifications you see depending on what time it is and where you are, Live Text can recognize text and make it selectable, Memory Mixes let you edit your own custom Memories in the Photos app, and a few apps are getting significant redesigns, including Maps and Weather.
