Tomorrow, September 20, Apple will release public versions of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 for all users of compatible devices. In anticipation of the release of the new operating system, we have compiled a quick guide on how to prepare your iPhone and iPad for the update.
The new iOS and iPadOS are aimed at improving the performance and stability of all supported devices. In addition, they contain a huge number of new functions, which we talked about in a separate article.
Right after WWDC 2021, Apple announced that all devices running iOS 14 are compatible with iOS 15. The list includes the following gadgets: iPhone SE / iPhone 6S and newer, iPad mini 4 / iPad Air 2 and newer, and iPod touch 7 th generation.
It’s amazing how quickly data can accumulate over the course of a year, so before backing up your device, it’s recommended to clear the memory of unnecessary content. For example, unnecessary photos, screenshots, videos and messages can take up to several tens of GB. Try to optimize the storage by removing all unnecessary items. Thanks to this, the update and subsequent recovery from a copy of all data will be faster.
Regardless of whether you set up your iPhone or iPad after the update – as a new device or retaining all of your previous data – it’s best to back up your device. There are several options to save information:
You can use the iCloud backup feature. To do this, go to Settings> Apple ID Profile> iCloud> Backup.
To back up on a Mac, connect your device to your computer, select your iPhone / iPad in the Finder, and click Back Up Now. It is advisable to encrypt the backup to save absolutely all data, including entries in the Health application and data about passwords. For a Windows PC, you need the iTunes app.
Updates will be available on Monday, September 20 after 7:00 pm ET.
