    This is a comprehensive guide with all of our coverage, and it’s a great resource for casual users who haven’t had a chance to test out ‌iOS 15‌ prior to its launch. Everything is organized by app or feature to make it easy to find what you might be looking for…

      Susan’s rule of patching iphones/ipads/iwatch is to like on the Windows side… hold back a bit.  Watch for any known issues/side effects.  So I don’t recommend going to iOS 15 just yet.

      I have run all iOS/iPadOS 15 betas (now on iOS/iPadOS 15 RC) with 0 problems of bugs, freeze, restarts..
      I fact, I am running beta versions for years.

      Never ran Windows insider/betas so can’t compare.

      Hey Y’all,

      I initiated the update this evening after backing up to iCloud (not much on this fairly new iPad). I was already on 14.8

      The download took 3 hours over a very solid Wi-Fi connection in my apt.

      The Preparing for Update took another hour or so and the actual Install another hour.

      About 5 hours total.

      Better set aside some time for this one!

      Home screen now junked up with the new Widgets! Actually the Clock and Calendar ones aren’t bad as they’re larger versions of the current shortcuts on the Home screen. The others I’ll just delete.

      HTH 😎

      May the Forces of good computing be with you!

        I have a 1Gb fiber connection.
        Download of iOS 15 (~6.3GB) and iPadOS 15 RC (~5.6GB) (I am on beta) took ~7-10 minutes each.
        Preparing took ~20min each.
        Update took ~10-15min each.

        iPhone 12 Pro Max 256GB, iPad 10.5″ 64GB.

          Downloading iOS 15 beta 1 5.43GB in 6 min.

          I think that the download speed in attributed not only to the network speed (1GB Fiber) but it is possible that my ISP has cached the file as many are downloading the update.

          I have the same iPad Pro and that matches my experience on a cable modem with wired/wireless router between the cable modem and my devices. We only have 3 wireless devices active, 2 iPhones and one Linux laptop; 4 with the iPad.

          I do find it much harder to arrange my screens, but the new all app access on the dock makes that less critical.

      I got the update right after I saw it was out. Today was the first time I have exercised (3 mile walk) since I updated both my iPhone and Apple watch. The watch startled me (and I stumbled because of it) when I reached one mile of walking as it spoke suddenly and announced I had walked one mile in 20 minutes and 5 seconds (decent at my age). I’ve had the watch almost two years and wear when I exercise and never before has it spoken suddenly! It’s a neat addition and I was ready for it when it spoke at two miles and three miles! Really nice if I was still running as it is not easy to see what the time is when moving fast but nice even when walking.
