One of the benefits to iOS 15 being a relatively incremental upgrade is the fact that every iPhone that was compatible with iOS 14 is also compatible with the new update. The same is true of iPadOS 14 and iPadOS 15. You can now squeeze at least one more year out of your device.

Best new features in iOS 15

In fact, FaceTime might be the biggest winner in iOS 15. SharePlay debuts in iOS 15, bringing movies and shows to FaceTime calls. You can also share music, web pages, apps, and more with SharePlay on FaceTime. Apple has also brought Portrait mode to FaceTime, which blurs the background during the call and puts you in focus. Plus, at long last, grid view comes to FaceTime.

The main addition in Messages is “Shared with You” — a new section in apps such as Photos, Safari, Apple Music, and more that shows you which content others have shared with you. You can also send photo collections in Messages and more easily save photos from within a conversation.

Other notable additions include enhanced Memoji customization, Live Text in photos, a new look for Memories in Photos, the ability to share Health data with others, and refreshed notifications.

How to download and install iOS 15.0.1

Installing a new update on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is an incredibly simple process. Navigate to Settings > General > Software Update and then tap “Download and Install” at the bottom of that page. If you prefer, you can also install the update through iTunes by connecting your iOS device to a computer. Whichever method you choose, just make sure to back up your device before installing an update so that you don’t risk losing any of your data during the procedure.
