This story is part of WWDC 2022, CNET's complete coverage from and about Apple's annual developers conference.

It's official: Apple's iOS 15 will be generally available to download on your iPhone on Monday, Sept. 20. The wide release of the mobile operating system was revealed during Apple's iPhone 13 event on Tuesday, where we also got a first look at the latest iPhone model and the Apple Watch Series 7. If you simply cannot wait, iOS 15 is currently available as a public beta (here's how to download iOS 15), but at this point you should probably just hang on until the stable release shows up. (Here's how to preorder the new iPhone 13 too.)

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. 

Want to know if you'll be able to download iOS 15 on your iPhone once it's generally available? Here are all of the supported devices (below).
