It’s been a few minutes since Apple released the RC (Release Candidate) of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 . This is already the latest beta for developers . All this after confirming at the Apple Event that its official launch for the public will take place on Monday, September 20 , despite having launched iOS 14.8 a few days ago. This is a decision that responds to the fact that the launch must take place before Friday, September 24, which is when the iPhone 13 hit the market.
iOS 15 is already on the verge of its launch
As we have previously discussed, Apple has announced at the end of the iPhone 13 presentation event that the release date of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 will be September 20. This has meant that the RC has had to be launched today so that developers and beta testers can test this final version that will be the one that finally reaches all users next week.
If you are not an expert in the world of Apple betas, you should know that before the official launch of a new version of the operating system, the Release Candidate (RC) is released. This is a final version that developers and public beta testers can install and will be the same version that will reach general users on September 20. That is why if you install it right now, on Monday you will not have to do anything since you have the final version on your device. What if it can happen is that some type of serious error in the security performance has crept in and it is forced to change this RC, although it is something strange.
Unsurprisingly, Apple has not changed its traditional calendar that can be seen every year. Just before the launch of the new generation of iPhone, the new iOS is released. This is because these new computers will reach the hands of users with this version installed, and not with iOS 14. That is why it should always be released to all users days before as it has happened on this occasion. In addition to iOS 15 or iPadOS 15, watchOS 8 or tvOS 15 will also be released this day, of which the RC version has also been released. The only one left behind is macOS, which will have a different release date for another year.
Install the Release Candidate
Currently if you have the beta of iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 installed, you can now go to RC in a traditional way. Specifically, following the path Settings> General> Software update . But if not, you can always install the beta on the iPhone through the usual methods. This will make you have the final version installed before anyone else. Remember that as we have previously mentioned, this RC version will not vary from the one that will be released on Monday, so at first you will not have any bug.
Likewise, our recommendation is always to wait for the official launch next Monday. The only problem that you can find that day and that you can get rid of is the slowness of the download. On September 20 there will be many devices that update to this new version of iOS 15 or iPadOS 15. This will cause the waiting time to be high and can become frustrating.
