I can not update to iOS 15 over iTunes because it says "This version of iPhone software (14.8) is the current version". Is it only me or does anyone else have this problem too? Is there a fix?

I tried checking for updates on iTunes. I'm on version 12.11.4.15
I have an iPhone 12.

No, same here. I always do a full reset through iTunes with each new iOS. I already have iOS15 on my iPhone 12 mini but want to do a hardreset via restore through iTunes. It says resource not available to download. So it is not yet available to download via Mac. That is often the case with big jumps. Sometimes hours later, sometimes next day.

Same for iPad OS 15. Wanted to update and restore my iOS14.8 iPad and it gave me 14.8 to restore...

Maybe someone can post when he or she was successful to download iOS15 or iPadOS15 via Mac/iTunes.

Same here for me too. Not showing iOS/iPadOS 15 update in iTunes.
I'm on:
iTunes 12.8.3.1
MacOS 10.13.6
