iOS 15 Release date
First, let’s talk about the rumored launch date of the iOS 15. Most, probably, Apple Inc. will announce the release date of the new iOS 15 during the Apple WWDC 2021, which is all set to be held in June next year. The reason behind this rumor is the Apple Inc. has done this from past many years.

Right after announcing the date of new upgrade, the company will announce the paid developers’ preview to the Apple developers, which will be probably known as the first iOS 15 developer beta. After a few weeks, the next update will be released for the normal Apple device owners and would be named as the iOS 15 public beta.
To be precise, the process that is rumored to be followed by the Inc. would be as follows

iOS 15 Compatibility
The next big thing that the Apple device owners have been searching for is the COMPATIBILITY. And although the iOS 14 is available to the iPhone 6 and beyond, it might be not the case with the latest iOS 15. There are good chances that the iOS 15 will exclude the iPhone 7 from the list of compatible devices. Basically, the Apple Inc. is planning to exclude the older devices from the mainstream Apple devices and thus the new iOS update will be available for those devices that run on the A11 chipset (iPhone 6 and beyond). And if by any chance, the update will be available for the iPhone 7, then too, the smartphone won’t be able to use the full swing of the update.

iOS 15 Features
Some of the major changes that the Apple users are asking for past many years, and which might be done with iOS 15 are
A new and more advanced camera app
If you are an iPhone user, then you would agree that apart from being fairly easy to use camera app, the iPhones lack the features that differentiate a good and formidable camera app. And with the technology enhancements, and other brands making their camera apps extraordinary in terms of performance and features, it is now a high time for the Apple Inc. to make some exciting changes to the camera app.
Here are list of best power banks for iPhone devices.
Health apps for the iPads
Undoubtedly, the health and fitness apps are great on the iOS platform, but unfortunately, they are limited to the Apple watches and iPhones. With the new update, we might get these amazing apps and features to the iPads too.
New home screen
The home screen UI has been consistent from past many years and generations of the Apple devices. Although, it is not bad, but still needs some enhancements to make the users feel more privileged to use a premium device.
With a huge increase in Spammer around the world, it is now essential for Apple Inc. to come up with a good solution to block the spammers just making a few taps. And although Apple Inc. has made changes in its policies that made it somewhat easier to deal with spammers, but it is still a long way to go. However, Apple Inc. has recently issued a patent for the feature to deal with the spammer, and we may get this great and essential feature with the iOS 15.

More control over UI
Another thing that is being constantly raised by the Apple users is to have more control over the UI. Although the UI of the Apple devices is simple and has a hint of a premium touch, more UI enhancement will definitely make the things better for both the company and to the users.
iOS 15 Wishlist
Apple has been surprisingly mum at the front for the support of touchpads and mice. This year and in 2019, there even not much as slightest of the rumours about the improved support and functionality for mouse and touchpads, either.
- Updated Parental controls and stability improvements
- Digital health tools
- Revamped apps
- Support for multi-player games
- Redesigned CarPlay
- Improved apps
- Revamped Mail app
Now that iPhone has been released with OLED display, it’s the right time to bring always-on display. OLEDs use power only for pixels which are lit up. Lighting up a fraction of screen uses only a part of battery.
Ignore DND and Grouping Notifications
On iOS, notifications are a kind of mess. You either needs to turn app notification apps on or you end up with a deluge that makes it hard for you to know the things which need action and are important. On iOS, notifications are a kind of mess. In each app, they must add a toggle in notification settings to ignore Do Not Disturb.
Improvements in Portrait Mode
With the launch of iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has brought the faux-bokeh effect which is popular on premium devices. Portrait mode has just got better with time. Google crushes the same with Pixel 2. It has more precise in-depth effects with better edges and they do it on both back and front cameras, despite having only one lens to do this. If Google is doing the same, why can’t Apple, at least with latest devices with A11?
Endless photo storage
You know what’s interesting about Google Photos? It is unlimited, free, and it doesn’t impose cloud storage limits from Google.
It would be great if Apple brings same things to its devices. Currently, you have only 5GB of space available for free in iCloud. If you pay for extra storage, videos and photos taken with iPad and iPhone won’t count over the storage limit.
There are still hundreds of thousands of users who would happily pay $0.99 per month for iCloud storage of additional 50GB, if they get unlimited video and photo storage and use 50GB for documents and backups.
iOS 15 Concept
According to Gurman, Apple would bring in-app tabs, just like on MacOS. It means users would be able to work on multiple screens side by side on same app by turning on Split View. He also said that iPhone will get iPad-like Springboard redesign. Also Check apple watch stainless steel band
