Why You Should Install iOS 15

If you are constantly receiving notifications on your iPhone, the new Focus Mode will allow you to create different Focus profiles for different occasions. For instance, you can create a profile for meetings, running, writing, gaming, and much more.
- iCloud Private Relay
This is a new Privacy feature coming to iOS 15. It will be available as part of an iCloud+ subscription and offers a safe browsing experience via Safari on your iPhone or iPad.
- Enhanced FaceTime
FaceTime is getting a heavy boost as Windows and Android users can now also join in the call for the first time ever. You can create links and share them with your friends and family. SharePlay is another major addition coming with iOS 15 but it will not be available at launch.
- Safari Changes
Safari is getting a makeover with iOS 15 and it is one of the biggest reasons why should install it right away. Other than the visual changes, Safari will offer smarter tab management where users can create different groups of tabs based on their usage.
- Notes App
The Notes app is getting some nifty additions as well which will allow you to better organize your work with tags. Smart Folder will recognize these tags and collect notes automatically and accordingly.
Reasons Why You Should Not
While all the new additions sound tempting, do check out some of the reasons why you should not update on the latest iOS 15 update.
- Incompatible Apps
Initially, there will be a lot of apps that would not be updated with support for the new additions. Henceforth, unless these apps are updated to work with iOS 15, you should wait for a while. There will be a plethora of bugs under the hood which could prevent apps from functioning properly and normally.
- No Jailbreak
Since there does not exist a tool to jailbreak iOS 15 at this point, there is no reason to end your existing jailbreak status on iOS 14. Moreover, there is no news if the jailbreak community will release a tool for iOS 15 in the near future. Henceforth, it is vital to stick to iOS 14 and keep your jailbreak status until the new tool arrives.
- Bugs and Errors
Whenever Apple releases a new update to iOS, there are always bound to be errors and bugs. These bugs can potentially cause distortions and prevent your iPhone from working normally. There have been issues where bugs in the update caused the device to overheat. Henceforth, if you are tempted to install iOS 15 right away, we would recommend you wait and see user feedback on such issues.
- Most Features Not Available at Launch
As mentioned earlier, most iOS 15 features will not be available at launch. This takes out the biggest reason why should wait for the update at launch. For instance, features like FaceTime SharePlay, Legacy Contacts, and others will not be available at launch. You can check out all the iOS 15 features that will not be available at launch.
