Apple’s iOS 15 has got off to a rocky start with users reporting lots of bugs with the most notable being preventing people from unlocking their phone via the Apple Watch. Apple is already ironing out these complaints with the upcoming iOS 15.1 build, which is currently in beta but now Twitter user @RobertCFO received confirmation from a member of the Apple Product Security Team about the release date of the last build.

According to the leaked email, iOS 15.1 and iPad OS 15.1 will be released on October 25 – exactly one week after Apple’s “Unleashed” event, which is scheduled for October 18. This is in line with Apple’s usual software update policy to release new software one week after its events.
Apple iOS 15.1 is expected to bring SharePlay, which lets you remotely watch and listen to streaming content with your friends via FaceTime, ProRes video support, which is Apple’s new losing video codec, and support for COVID-19 vaccination documents in the Wallet app and bug fixes for the celebrities problems in iOS 15.
