iOS 15 Beta 1 Release Notes

New Features & Changes
  • Personal hotspot indicator is green, where in previous iOS versions, the indicator is blue.
  • There’s a new “background sounds” accessibility feature, which can be used to mask unwanted environmental noise, helping you to focus.
  • iPod Touch and iPads now have Low Power Mode.
  • App Library folder “Productivity & Finance” is now broken into separate folders.
  • You can no longer toggle “Show Apple Music” off even if you don’t subscribe to Apple Music.
  • Certain carriers may allow users to “convert to eSIM” straight from within settings app.
New Issues
  • If you have tabs opened in safari before upgrade, safari will sort your tab in the ascending order based on tab opened time, yet create your new tabs at the oldest tab you opened.
  • Safari is a bit buggy editing lists on MacRumors.
  • The Account Settings screen may display a button to purchase iCloud Plus even if you have a subscription. Restarting your device can fix it.

  • Music app composed smart artwork is broken.
  • After restarting Messages, phone numbers are briefly shown in place of contact names.
  • Weather notifications for “My Location” do not remain enabled.

  • You will not be able to purchase AppleCare coverage by tapping “AppleCare Coverage Available” from within the settings app if you are testing your new device with this beta.
  • Downloaded Apple Music track May not play properly if cellular for Apple Music is turned off.
  • If you recently purchase a new device and install iOS 15 beta 1 on it, some pre-installed applications may keep being re-downloaded even if you uninstall them from the device.
Remaining Issues
  • Some websites freeze randomly during browsing if safari is not active for a brief moment. This issue existed back in iOS 14.6.

Hope everyone at least skim through the release notes since there are a lot of known issues before installing
As much as I would probably have a majority of users disagree with me here, it is honestly best to wait for the public beta to launch, usually b3, at least going by the past. Expect the early builds to be really buggy. Not guaranteed but a safe bet, haha.

Hence why developers are the first people to handle it, and for a while. The average Joe would unleash this beast on every device they have then get pissed at "it's a buggy update!"

Hell, I'm updating an Apple TV 4K with tvOS 15, and I know that's a "point of no return" procedure. Thank goodness it's simply a spare I won't be missing.

Honestly the first iOS beta I will be skipping over. I wasn’t impressed really with this update. iOS 14 was a better upgrade than this one. Hopefully they will add more good features as they do updates until public release

developer.apple.com is struggling a ton. Will have to wait. Considering it's a W-build I suppose I will wait this one out for the time being. Nothing of the new stuff is interesting enough for me to risk installing such a early build.

No idea how the Apple Music stuff is supposed to work either. It was going to be made available today, but on iOS 14.6 and iOS 14.7 BETA2 we still lack any options for setting Apple Lossless under Setting on iOS and iPadOS so I'm not sure how we are supposed to enable those tiers of quality? The Settings.app can't be updated "on-the-fly" by Apple can it?
