iOS 15 Launch Time and New Options Coming to Your iPhone At the moment REVEALED

Apple may be releasing its iPhone 13 range later this week, but if you’re not in the market for a new smartphone, don’t panic. The US tech company is also releasing its iOS 15 software upgrade today, Monday September 20th, which comes with new features including improved FaceTime calls, better ways to avoid distracting annoying texts, and more Memoji options and a huge upgrade to the Apple Maps app.

As long as your iPhone is running iOS 14, you shouldn’t have any problems upgrading later today, and like all iOS updates, it’s completely free to download and install.

When will iOS 15 be available?

Apple never announces an exact start time for its iOS software upgrades, but things usually get released around 6:00 p.m. BST.

There was a slight delay in 2020 that resulted in some users having to wait until almost 8 p.m. to receive the download, but this is pretty rare.

It is worth remembering that access to the iOS update may take longer on launch day as millions of Apple fans try to install things at the same time. So, if you don’t care about having the new features tonight, it might be worth waiting until tomorrow or later this week before trying to upgrade.

Safari has also been completely redesigned, with the search bar moved to the bottom of the screen for ease of use with one hand.

Another change comes to Apple Maps with a massive paint job and new features, including a three-dimensional city driving experience.
