iPhone and iPad compatible with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, how to update your Apple mobile or tablet

The problem when we buy a smartphone is that the speed of evolution in mobile technology and operating systems causes some phones to have programmed obsolescence at the software level.

Programmed obsolescence in the software

In some brands, after 2 – 3 version changes -since the versions are annual, every 2-3 years-, your mobile will become obsolete and will no longer receive updates, which leaves it in an unprotected position as soon as to security patches. And the reason is usually that the new versions of the OS you use need more resources, components and elements that the mobile does not have or are not powerful enough.

But Apple is not like that, and in its policy of updating its iPhone mobiles, every year it tries to bring the new version of its operating system to as many more models possible. This will not be an exception with iOS 15, which can be used even on iPhones that are more than 5 years old.

iOS 15, which iPhone models are supported

iOS 15 is already a reality – in fact there is even the beta of iOS 15.1-, and in this link you have all its news, including a FaceTime with even more natural calls; Concentration modes that help reduce distractions; Live Text showing information of interest and Map enhancements that allow you to explore the world.

But the doubt, will the iPhone that you have in your hands and with which you are perhaps reading this will be compatible with iOS 15?
