Apple’s iOS 15 software update is coming today, the update will bring a wide range of new features to the iPhone, there will also be an update for the iPad as well in the form of iPadOS 15.
There are a number of things you can do to make sure your iPhone is ready for the update when it is released later today.
One of the most important things you should do to get your device ready for the iOS 15 software update is to backup your device.
This will ensure that you can restore your iPhone to its original state in case there are any issues with this new software update. This can be done with your Mac or PC by connecting it or via iCloud.
Another thing you should do is make sure you are on the latest version of iOS. Apple released iOS 14.8 last week, so make sure you install that before the iOS 15 update as it comes with some important security updates.
