The launch of iOS 15 was almost half as fast as last year’s iOS 14 over the same period last year
Only 21% of compatible iPhone devices have an update to iOS 15
Some of the features that should encourage iPhone users to upgrade to iOS 15 include Focus, a version of Do Not Disturb on steroids. With Focus you note your status and depending on what activity you are engaged in, certain notifications and messages are blocked. To counter any temptation, apps and widgets that are not relevant can be removed from your home screen.
The improvements in the latest iOS build include several designed to improve Siri’s performance
To update your iPhone to iOS 15, go to settings > Generally > Software update. Follow the instructions on the screen. Certainly, the large number of bugs that have cropped up on iOS 15 so far has given owners of compatible iPhone models a reason to wait to update their devices. However, if you want to use the new features like Focus and Live Text, you have no choice but to download and install the latest iOS update.
Thanks to Apple’s Neural Engine, Siri can also process speech directly on the device with the update. With iOS 15, Siri’s speech recognition improves (always a sore point with iPhone users) and the digital assistant also maintains context so requests you make to Siri can be more chatty. Speaking of context, Siri uses on-screen context to make a call or send a text, which will save you valuable time.
There is still a large percentage of active iPhone units to be carried over by iOS 14. Mixpanel shows that 73.48% of these phones are using iOS 14 while another 5.78% are running iOS 13 or older.
