iphone: Apple has started pushing users to install iOS 15, here’s how

Written by News Sateek

Tech giant Apple has taken an aggressive stance when it comes to users installing timely updates on its iOS platform. It will not provide security updates to devices that have not been updated for iOS 15, according to a report by Cult of Mac.
Apple previously decided to continue sending security updates separately to iPhones and said it would continue to provide them to those who wanted to continue with the. iOS 14 until they were ready for iOS 15. Within a few months, that view of the company changed. Now Apple wants everyone to upgrade to iOS 15. The latest version is iOS 15.2.1 and there is iOS 15.3 in beta. It should be noted that 63% of Apple users have actually upgraded to iOS 15, which is considered a slow adoption pattern.
In keeping with this new “command,” Apple now shows only iOS 15 as an upgrade option on devices running only iOS 14. The update was optional before, but not now. In addition, the company has also reportedly “removed the ability to install other versions of iOS 14”.
“So if you’re using iOS 14.8, for example. It was previously possible to update to iOS 14.8.1 and skip iOS 15. Now iOS 14.8.1 is no longer an option. It’s either iOS 15 and the latest security enhancements, or stick with what you have,” the report says.
If you are a iPhone user, it would be better to update to the latest version of the operating system, otherwise security updates for your phone will be blocked by Apple. If you know how Apple’s firewalls have been bypassed more frequently by hackers in recent years, you know how dangerous it can be for your phone not to receive security updates.
