According to the company, iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and tvOS 15 will all be released on September 20th. As of now, it’s unclear when macOS Monterey will be released, but I assume that’ll be closer to the end of this month or next month when new MacBook Pros are expected.
iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 focus more on quality of life improvements than major overhauls. New Focus modes for your home screen and notifications, SharePlay, widgets on the iPad’s home screen, major updates for FaceTime including spatial audio and portrait mode, improvements to notifications, an upgraded Weather app on iOS, and more are all included.
Meanwhile, watchOS 8 gets some new watch faces (including a portrait photo face), Focus modes, more smart home controls, upgrades to stock apps, and more. tvOS 15 is also a pretty minor update with new recommendation filters, support for Spatial Audio when pairing AirPods, HomePod mini pairing, and updates for HomeKit.
All of these updates should be released around 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT as that’s typically when Apple drops new updates. I’ll let you know when they start rolling out.
