How Apple extends the life of your iPhone

As part of the opening of its WWDC 2021, the giant Apple has obviously lifted the veil on the future iOS 15. A new mobile operating system that will accompany the introduction of future iPhones at the end of the year, but could also be installed on many iPhones that are already in circulation. Apple has also reserved a good surprise for all those who do not want to switch to this iOS 15 immediately.

iOS 14 was also updated after the release of iOS 15

According to MacRumors, Apple will soon be giving users the choice of upgrading to iOS 15 once it is released or staying on iOS 14 and continuing to receive critical security fixes for the latter. Everything is done very easily, directly from the settings of the iPhone.

The user will then have the choice to update to the latest version of iOS 15 when it is released to take advantage of the latest features and the most comprehensive security updates, but they can also choose to keep using iOS 14 and benefit from important security updates . It is up to the user to decide when to migrate to iOS 15, which is good when we know that sometimes it is (often) advisable to wait a few weeks before upgrading to a brand new version of iOS in order to avoid unpleasant surprises avoid.

A rather surprising (and definitely welcome) change in mentality on the part of Apple, which so far has tended to motivate users to migrate quickly to the new iOS as soon as it is made available. So this change gives customers more time to update, especially if they have iOS devices that are managed by a company or other organization.

Note that it is already possible to install the beta versions of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, or even MacOS Monterey on certain Apple devices.
