Now the question is Is my iPhone compatible with iOS 15? answered. If you are interested in further information from yesterday's Apple WWDC21 Keynote, I recommend my summary of the event: WWDC21 Keynote Summary - New Systems, No Hardware. It also describes the new iPadOS for the Apple iPad, the new macOS for Mac, Mac mini, iMac and MacBook as well as watchOS for the Apple Watch with the new features and functions. For example, Mac and iPad can now be used across screens with the same input devices - the whole thing is called “Universal Control” and it works like magic. Have a look, if that sounds interesting to you;)
