iOS 15 is boring (and that's a good thing)





The Weekender
Sweeping change is overrated, especially when it comes to something you use every day – like your iPhone.
This year’s iOS update doesn’t bring a ton of mind-blowing new features. But when you’re trying to execute a simple task, sometimes you don’t want your mind blown. You want “it just works” … or maybe “it just works the way I’m already comfortable with.”
iOS 15’s iterative changes indicate just how mature the iPhone is. And that’s a very good thing.
That’s the gist of Cult of Mac writer Ed Hardy’s reasoning. Get his full take in this week’s top story. We’ve also got more info on what is actually new in iOS 15, along with some tasty how-tos and reviews.
