At the start of the week, Apple finally released iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 to the public. There’s a lot to dig into with the new update and if you’re not a complete Apple nerd you’d be forgiven for missing some of the changes.

Below, you’ll find links to web versions of all our favorite new iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 tips. It’s a great overview of what’s new and improved – if you don’t have time to read them all, we’d recommend at least getting familiar with the all-new Focus Mode and the controversial new layout in Safari.

Then, if you’re reading on iPad, head to the end of this article for an update on the iPad-specific changes you should know.

Enjoy these VIP tips, and rest assured we’ll be launching a full content update in the new few days to update the existing guides in the All Tips section too.
