You’ve probably already heard about Apple’s decision not to mandatorily update iOS 14 to iOS 15. Surprisingly, surprisingly, why not? There are many reasons that could lead her to such a decision. And we do not know everything. Nevertheless, colleagues from several publications came to a startling conclusion. What awaits iOS in 2022 grand update… If only because iOS 15 disappointed everyone, since there is nothing particularly new in it.
The iOS presentation, despite Craig Federighi’s artistic talent, seemed boring to many. Something that was supposed to be presented on June 7 had to be postponed. But in fact, in terms of the number of innovations and their importance, iOS 15, at least, is not inferior to other iOS in recent years. The list of innovations spans several pages. The update is quite worthy. But does it follow from this conclusion that iOS 16 will be boring and not at all?
Do we know everything about iOS 15?
Everything announced at the iOS 15 presentation should be included in the official release of iOS 15. But sometimes even what is announced does not make it into the first releases. Life is life. Therefore, the announcement of some innovations, usually the most interesting and exciting, but risky, at the presentation may not refrain. Beta versions for developers usually include such innovations. But it is forbidden to report them publicly, and this is not an empty formality. What will be in the official release of iOS 15 this fall, and what will not be, we know in the most general terms. In addition, something new and interesting may well appear in the hardware of the new generation of iPhone. I’m sure iOS 15 is good enough anyway, but opinions vary. Don’t judge – wait until autumn.
Why Apple Allowed Not to Upgrade to iOS 15
In fact, Apple wants as many users as possible to update to the latest operating systems. And not only in order to boast of the speed of the transition of its users to new versions. Because of their greater security. And due to the fact that in the new versions, many problems (some of them are unknown outside of Apple, but they are) are solved. The newer versions are even more perfect. On new and relatively new devices, they have no equal. But with older devices that support installing the latest version, things are not so simple. Not all of the features of the new version are too tough for them.
Often old devices have to be artificially slowed down for various reasons. Apple knows exactly how many devices and what models are actively used. From a cloud-based database of electronic components against which all devices are compared to ensure integrity. Apparently, the number of actively used iPhones on which iOS 15 there may be problems, it has become too much. And the lawsuits for which Apple has to pay (including for the slow operation of devices in new systems) are already costing it unacceptable amounts. Permitting not to update on iOS 15 is the easiest thing Apple could do. Will you be upgrading to iOS 15? Share your opinion in our Telegram chat.
Apple has consistently stated that it takes the security of its ecosystem most seriously, so security patches will continue to be released for iOS 14. Hardware and software security is a real concern at Apple. But it is impossible to foresee everything. Vulnerability hunters constantly find loopholes for attackers in the most unexpected places and inform Apple about it. Security patches are not something entirely new; they use a more efficient distribution mechanism. This is dictated by necessity. Security patches are irrelevant to the perfection of the next version of iOS, and even to the permission not to update to iOS 15. More and more malicious software is on the way. Apple is almost more interested in the security of users of its technology than they are.
