[Update: June 2] Apple iOS 15/iPadOS 15 update bugs/issues tracker: Reported, acknowledged, & fixed

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on September 21, 2021) follows:

Apple announced the latest iteration of its mobile operating systems, iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, at the WWDC 2021 event held in early June. Since then, the iOS and iPadOs 15 have been the talk of the town.

The beta program for the latest iOS and iPadOS iterations was also started back then and those who took part in it got to taste multiple versions of the iOS and iPadOS 15 betas.

Now, Apple has finally released the stable iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 updates which offer a bunch of new features and improvements to those with eligible the iPhone and iPad models.

However, major OS updates are bound to have several bugs and issues and the iOS and iPadOS 15 are no exceptions. To recall, iPhone Live Text users were facing the issue where the double tap on image to zoom function was not working as late as iOS 15 beta 7.

Also, the problem where the Reddit app kept running in the background came to light with iOS 15 beta 8. There were even compatibility issues with Microsoft apps on the iOS and iPadOS 15 RC updates.

The stable iOS and iPadOS 15 updates have come out quite recently but iPhone and iPad users are already noticing and reporting about some bugs and issues during regular use.

Among them, the missing Shareplay or screen share on FaceTime feature, missing AirTags in the Find My app, blurred Apple Maps Look Around images, and more.

However, it is only natural for such major updates to have bugs and issues as long as they get taken care of in future updates.
