Apple Seeds First Betas of iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first betas of upcoming iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 updates to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming two days after the launch of iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5.

iOS 15
Developers can download iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after the proper profile has been installed on an iPhone or iPad.

We don't yet know what might be introduced in iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6, as Apple has now implemented all of the features that were announced as coming in the iOS and iPadOS 15 updates, and work on iOS 15 is likely winding down with iOS 16 approaching.

iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 could be some of the last updates to iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 as Apple is now working on iOS 16. We'll get our first glimpse at iOS 16 on June 6, the first day of the Worldwide Developers Conference.

Apple has also seeded initial betas of tvOS 15.6 and watchOS 8.7.

I’m waiting until the very last release, some time in August before I install this despised OS on my iPhone. Not looking forward to it - but staying more than a year behind sucks even more.
You are illogically biting off your nose to spite your face.

And for no reason as 15 runs well, even on my antique 6S and Air 2.

And at considerable risk as multiple updates during 15 have fixed exploits some of which were under active exploit.
