The public version of iOS 15 was out yesterday. It can now be installed on all compatible Apple iPhone models. But should you install the new operating system? Or is it advisable to wait for the first update to avoid possible errors? In search of answers to these questions, I have studied a few articles on other sites. You can find my summary here. You can also find some more information about the iOS 15 update on the Apple iPhone.
Counselor: These smartphones are compatible with iOS 15
As with any major update or system upgrade, it is advisable to create a backup beforehand. Regardless of whether you want to update your Mac to macOS 12 Monterey or update your iPhone to iOS 15, a backup saves your data and enables you to easily reset it in the event that something goes wrong.
By the way, the iPhone backup should be encrypted so that your passwords are also backed up. If you choose a non-encrypted backup, the login data for websites and apps will not be saved for security reasons. You can do the iPhone backup on the Apple Mac via the Finder or on the Windows PC via iTunes.
Once you have created the backup, you can devote yourself to the update to iOS 15, which you can find in the iPhone settings. It hides a little inconspicuously, even on highly compatible devices like the iPhone 12. This is the best way to proceed:
With iOS 15 and watchOS 8, Apple provides the solution to a problem that has long been addressed by users: system updates when there is little free memory. If the current system, the installed apps and stored data did not release enough gigabytes, there was a problem so far. IPhone SE (1st Gen) users with only 16 GB can tell a thing or two about it.
With the current versions this should now be a thing of the past. The new operating system should now be able to be installed even with less than 500 MB free memory. This becomes possible because the apps are backed up and then deleted. With the space gained, the new OS is installed and then the apps are reloaded.
Below you will find more general problems and bugs that can affect the iPhone with iOS 15. Here I have collected a few more specific bugs, bug reports and objections that I have noticed in the last few days through articles from various sources. Next to the respective mention you will find the corresponding source (in brackets):
I haven't really noticed a problem with iOS 15 myself. Only one strange bug occurred after upgrading the iPhone operating system: If I start an audiobook in the Audible app and switch off the display, the playback is paused. Only after I quit and restart the app can I continue playback even when the display is switched off. I read on the net that the bug has been around for a long time; I don't understand why it only appears on iOS 15.
As mentioned at the beginning, I searched the net for a few articles with known iOS 15 problems. I noticed a few things that you can see in the following list. Some are more general complaints that come with pretty much every operating system upgrade, while others are more specific:
The problems listed do not have to occur, but they could. Some can be resolved by simply rebooting or resetting certain settings. If you have made a backup, in the worst case scenario, you can simply reset your iPhone to iOS 14.
You can find more information about iOS 15, the new features of the operating system and the roll-out of the system upgrade by Apple in the official press release from 20.09.2021/XNUMX/XNUMX. But maybe you can also provide some information? Have you already loaded and installed the new operating system for your Apple smartphone? What experiences can you share with us and all other readers? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic :)
