Apple won’t push you to upgrade to iOS 15, providing the option to remain on iOS 14 with security updates
Apple has said that when iOS 15 launches publicly later this year, users will have the option to either upgrade or remain on iOS 14 to receive only important security updates until they are ready to upgrade to the next major version.
Set to be made publicly available in the fall, iOS 15 will bring several major enhancements to the iPhone including FaceTime upgrades, a new Focus feature, enhanced on-device intelligence, iMessage, Maps, Weather, and Wallet, updates, and more, but of course, not all users want to upgrade straight away.
Apple says, “iOS now offers a choice between two software update versions in the Settings app. You can update to the latest version of iOS 15 as soon as it’s released for the latest features and most complete set of security updates. Or continue on iOS 14 and still get important security updates until you’re ready to upgrade to the next major version.”
This feature will be particularly useful for users of older devices, such as the iPhone 6s and 1st generation iPhone SE who make be concerned about any possible performance issues when upgrading to iOS 15, likely the last update the devices will receive.
