iOS 15 download: After Tuesday’s Apple Event, iPhone and iPad users are all set to download Apple’s upcoming iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 updates which are scheduled to arrive on September 20. After being beta tested for the past few months, Apple is finally releasing the updates to its popular iPhone and iPad operating systems, bringing improvements to notification handling as well as system apps, which have received a few useful tweaks.
iOS 15 features: One of the biggest improvements to the iOS notification system is the addition of notification summaries on iOS 15 which will show users a ‘roundup’ of all the important notifications they may have missed when they pick up their phone after a while. Similarly, using an iPhone is set to get a lot easier with the arrival of iOS 15, thanks to new Focus modes for better digital wellbeing. Apple is also bringing changes to the Safari browser for better single-handed use, FaceTime with support for Android users, SharePlay features and more.

Users will also see a big improvement to the iPad home screen in the form of the App Library, which will give users the ability to organise their apps in an easier manner.
