Apple will not ‘force’ users to upgrade to iOS 15 – Times of India




Apple has officially announced the new software update for iPhone and iPad users — iOS 15 and iPad OS 15 — and it is still a couple of months before the company officially rolls it out. This means that people have to use the iOS 14 and iPadOS 15 update till then.
This year, however, Apple will allow iPhone users to continue to use iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 even after the rollout of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, claims a report by MacRumours.
The report cites the software pages for the new updates where Apple says, “iOS now offers a choice between two software update versions in the Settings app. You can update to the latest version of iOS 15 as soon as it’s released for the latest features and most complete set of security updates. Or continue on ‌iOS 14‌ and still get important security updates until you’re ready to upgrade to the next major version.”
Previously, the company has had an opposite approach as every time it pushed a major software update, it stops signing past versions of iOS to make it impossible to downgrade.
According to the report, the option to have both iOS 14 and iOS 15 and iPadOS 14 and iPadOS 15 will be useful for those who are unable to update their devices because of device restrictions or requirements implemented by work organisations or schools.
The iOS 15 comes with a slew of new features for FaceTime, notifications customisations, new features for Photo apps, new privacy-centric features and more.
