After a few weeks of testing, Apple plans to provide the betas to its public beta testing group as well, with Apple CEO Tim Cook confirming plans to release the new software to public beta testers at some point in July.

This is also the testing format that Apple used for the iOS 14 updates last year, so public beta testers can look forward to getting the new software to test out in a month.

Apple plans to publicly release all of the new updates in the fall.

Tim Cook - let's release a new, very powerful M1 iPad, and then make it no more useable than the one we released in 2018, 2017, 2016 etc.

People don’t do that anymore. not that I’ve noticed. It was cool seeing something different back in 2010. Nowadays each new software update is too small to notice. I don’t think anymore cares anymore.
Install the new iOS 15 wallpaper on your iOS 14 iPhone, boom you have iOS 15 ?‍♂️

Worse event I’ve watched in a very very long time
