The next major software update for the iPhone, iOS 15, is now available for those who want to test it. Unveiled at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference along with a slate of other product releases in June, iOS 15 is now available as a public beta (here's how to download iOS 15), with the general release arriving in the fall, likely alongside the rumored iPhone 13

iOS 15 includes new features like the ability to start FaceTime calls with Android users, easier sharing on iMessage and updates to Apple Maps. In terms of privacy-focused improvements, iOS 15 expands on-device processing to further limit the potential circulation of your data, and gives you more information about what data third-party apps are collecting from your Apple devices.
