Apple has released iOS 15.1.beta 2 available to developers with downloads available via both IPSW files and the OTA method.

No matter which of these two methods you prefer, updating to iOS 15.1 beta 2 is now very much an option.

And update you should, too, especially if you’re using one of Apple’s latest iPhone 13 devices and have been suffering from the bug that prevented Apple Watches from unlocking them while wearing a mask. That bug has now been fixed, although it isn’t clear when the update will be made available to the public.

Apple only released iOS 15 to the public a couple of weeks ago, but the Apple Watch fix could see this iOS 15.1 update brought forward. We had expected a new iOS 15.0.1 bug fix update to be released, which still might happen. But Apple may also decide to just bring the iOS 15.1 update forward instead.

Despite having this new bug fix in place, we’d still only suggest people install beta versions of iOS on devices that are not their main iPhones.

While this update does indeed fix a bug, it isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that it could also reintroduce one or two as well. Keep that in mind before installing.
