Everything looks and sounds great, I can't wait to try it! I'm a little disappointed that there's no change other than the sound in Apple Music. But I really love the new iOS 15! Good job, Apple

Too bad they they can’t give iOS 15 to iPad Air 1 yet they can for iPhone 6s, what’s the difference?

Honestly, this year's release isn't huge so it's expected for them to continue supporting the devices they did with iOS 14. Maybe next year, if there's a redesign, that's when the 6s and SE 1 drop.
