List of iOS 15 supporting devices: Release date, Beta version, iPadOS 15, WatchOS 8 and More

 

Every year, Apple releases important updates to its iOS and iPadOS mobile operating systems, as well as watchOS updates for the Apple Watch at Apple’s annual WWDC event.  This time also Apple officially announced its iOS 15 for iPhones, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and macOS Monterey software.

The next update will be available this fall for iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and Macs, usually around September when the new iPhones are announced.

The developer beta for the new operating systems is currently accessible, and the public beta will be available in July. Take a look at the devices that will receive iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and macOS Monterey below.

 

iOS 15:

The good news is that you will be able to upgrade to iOS 15 in the fall if your iPhone supports iOS 14. The following are all of the devices that will be able to run iOS 15:

iPhone 6S (including Plus)

iPhone SE (first and second generation)

iPod Touch (seventh generation)

Given that the iPhone 6S was released in late 2015, iOS 15 is the device's sixth major update. Along with SE and iPod Touch models, any iPhone built after this date will receive the upgrade for free.

You can find out what iPhone you have by going to Settings > General > About. Your iPhone will be listed under "Model Name," with the iOS version you're using mentioned above it.


iPadOS 15:

iPads that support iPadOS 14 will be able to upgrade to iPadOS 15 in the same way that iPhones may upgrade to iOS 15. This includes the following:

iPad Pro 12.9-inch (first generation through fifth generation)

iPad Pro 11-inch (first generation through third generation)

iPad Pro 10.5-inch

iPad Pro 9.7-inch

iPad (fifth generation through eighth generation)

iPad Mini (fourth and fifth generation)

iPad Air (second generation through fourth generation)

Under Settings > General > About, you may get any essential information about your tablet or the software you're using right now.


watchOS 8:

Apple is also releasing the next major version of its wearable operating system, in addition to its smartphone and tablet updates. Apple Watch Series 3 and later, including the Apple Watch SE, will be able to run watchOS 8.

These are the same Apple Watch devices that can already run watchOS 7. Launch the Watch app on your iPhone and go to General > About to see which Apple Watch you have and what software version it has.


iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 Public Beta:

After WWDC 2021, beta versions of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 were released to developers, with a public beta scheduled for July 2021. Enroll your device at beta.apple.com if you want to get in on the action early.

Facebook adds End-to-End Encryption for Voice and Video calls on Messenger

Facebook is bringing plenty of new features to Messenger users who enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE). With E2EE enabled, you can now make voice or video calls to Messenger contacts, just like you can with WhatsApp. Anyone outside of the sender and recipient, including Facebook, will not be able to listen to your voice and video calls if you use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) option, so it’s like adding an extra layer of security to your voice and video chats on Messenger. You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company.
