When will iOS 15 be released and which iPhone models will be compatible

We will explain when iOS 15 comes out and which iPhone models will be compatible with the next version of the iPhone operating system. iOS 15 was presented today along with its main new features, but it will not be compatible with absolutely all iPhone models, so we will clarify the doubts so you know what to expect in case yours is too old.

Before we start, we are going to tell you that there is still no specific release date for this new version. However, Apple is usually quite predictable in terms of the times it sets for the betas and releases of the final version of its operating systems, so we can get an idea of when it will arrive.

When iOS 15 will arrive

There is still no official date for the release of iOS 15, and at this time we do not know when each of the betas will arrive. As you know, before the release of each final version of iOS there are usually several betas that can be downloaded to test its features and help Apple find bugs. But based on how Apple usually performs its releases of new versions, let’s tell you what to expect.

As for betas, the first thing you need to know is that there are developer betas and public betas. The first is much more unstable, a first map for developers to adapt their applications, while the public ones are already designed for the rest of the users, so they can test the new features and find bugs.

The first beta for developers is going to be launched, according to Apple. It is not known the specific day, but once it is launched, it is normal that new betas will arrive approximately every two weeks. The public beta usually launches from the second or third beta for developers. Apple has already said that it will arrive in July, although the exact day remains to be seen.

Once they start to be released, the new versions of the public betas usually arrive one or two days after the new developer versions, giving some time to fix possible bugs that might appear in each new release. Therefore, new beta versions would be released every two weeks. These versions will not bring new features, but will simply polish the system by fixing bugs and improving performance and consumption.

The final versions of iOS are usually released when the new iPhones are announced at Apple’s Keynote, although sometimes they may arrive a few days earlier. This is usually around September, although Apple has only said that it will be during the coming fall. Therefore, if you do not want to expose yourself to possible bugs in the betas, you will still have to wait a few months.

Devices compatible with iOS 15

Now, let’s move on to leave you a complete list in which you are going to see which devices are going to be compatible with iOS 15. If your iPhone is on the list, this means that it will receive this update. But if you see that it does not appear on the list, it will be because Apple has already considered it too old and with insufficient hardware for the system, so it will no longer be updated. Essentially, as with the previous version of iOS, all devices after the iPhone 6s are supported. Here’s the list:
