Apple held its giant California Streaming event today where it announced the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, new iPad Mini, and a bunch of other stuff. After the event, the company revealed the release dates for iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and watchOS 8, which will come to both the new devices and several older models.

Apple announced all sorts of new features coming to iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and watchOS 8, and now the company has revealed when we’ll be able to install them on our devices.

Starting with iOS 15, Apple says it’ll drop on September 20, 2021, which is right around the corner. Of course, it won’t feature SharePlay or iCloud Private Relay, but it’ll still have lots of other cool features and fixes that make it worth downloading.

In the meantime, make sure to update to iOS 14.8 because it comes with critical security fixes that you’ll want on your phone.

For iPadOS 15, you’re also looking at a September 20, 2021 release date.

This last one will surprise you, but watchOS 8 is also coming out on September 20, 2021. Do you see the pattern here?

If you own all three devices, you’re going to be busy updating all of your devices, but it’ll be worth it for all the new features and fixes that you’ll get.
