Apple now forces the switch to iOS 15 on compatible iPhones

The delay announcements to make the transition to the new version were beautiful and very temporary. If you want to benefit from patches and security updates, it is mandatory to upgrade to iOS 15.

The Cupertino company had however changed its practices in 2021. If usually, the release of a new generation of the OS of iPads or iPhones meant for users a mandatory download of this update, when launching iOS 15, the American giant continued to support iOS 14. If you were hoping for this to be the case for a long time, think again.

Several media reported over the past week that users no longer had access to an update to iOS 14.81, but only to the latest available version of iOS 15.2.1. An observation then confirmed by Apple withArs Technica : the reprieve enjoyed by iOS 14 users was indeed temporary and has just ended. To benefit from the latest security updates, it is now necessary to switch to the new version of the operating system of your iPad or your iPhone.

“If you are using iOS 14.5 or iPadOS 14.5, or later, you may now be able to choose between two versions. This option allows you to install iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 as soon as this version is available, or to continue using iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 while still benefiting from important security updates for a certain period of time », indicated the firm on a page of its support.
