If you've been waiting patiently for the arrival of iOS 15 and the new features that come with it, you'll be happy to hear that Apple has started rolling out the new operating system.

You'll be able to get the latest version if you have an iPhone 6s or newer, which includes features like Live Text, updated Find My, FaceTime improvements, and more. The software update arrives just days before the iPhone 13 is unveiled to the public.

New ways to stay connected, major enhancements to help users focus and explore, and intelligent tools to help people get more done with their iPhones are all included in iOS 15. New features such as Live Text make advantage of on-device intelligence to display important information, while Maps updates provide totally new ways to navigate the world, among other things.

FaceTime is far more advanced than it has ever been, allowing users to communicate with anyone at any time. The audio and visual elements of FaceTime have been improved to make conversations more realistic and lifelike.

Shared with You is a new feature in Images, Safari, Apple News, Music, Apple Podcasts, and the Apple TV app that presents photos, articles, music, and other content shared by friends and family in Messages.

Here's a step-by-step instruction to downloading and installing iOS 15 on your device. If your phone is compatible with the update, start the procedure by following the steps below.
