Apple’s iOS 15 has been off to a rocky start with users reporting plenty of bugs with the most noteworthy one preventing people to unlock their phone via Apple Watch.

According to the leaked email, iOS 15.1 and iPad OS 15.1 will release on October 25 – exactly one week after Apple’s “Unleashed” event which is scheduled for October 18. This falls in line with Apple’s usual software update policy of releasing new software one week after its events.
