When will the iPadOS 15 upgrade for the iPad come?

The new operating system for Apple tablets will probably only be available with the release of new models in the fall. As in previous years, the new systems will only be rolled out when the latest devices that can be used with them come onto the market. It has not yet been said whether that will be in September, October or November 15 with regard to the iPadOS 2021 natively compatible iPad models. In addition to new iPads and new iPhones with iOS 15, new Mac or iMac and / or MacBook models with macOS Monterey can also be expected. Which previous Mac models are compatible with macOS Monterey, you read that in this guide.

Do you want to find out more about what Apple announced and presented yesterday at the WWDC21 Keynote? Then take a look at my summary of the event: WWDC21 Keynote Summary - New Systems, No Hardware. In addition, Apple offers extensive preview offers for all new operating systems on its official website. You can find the corresponding subpage for iPadOS with this link. I find “Quick Notes” particularly useful for the sole use of the iPad. In combination with iMac, MacBook, Mac mini and Co., “Universal Control” is really an eye-catcher. Which innovations and improvements do you think are the best? Feel free to leave a comment.
