iPadOS 15.5 is a significant upgrade which means it will likely bring a mix of new features, bug fixes, and security patches to iPad users.
We don’t have an official release date for iPadOS 15.5 yet, but iPad users who don’t want to wait can try a pre-release version of the software now.
With iPadOS 15.5 up and running, we want to tell you everything there is to know about Apple’s fifth update for iPadOS 15 users.
In this guide, we’ll tell you about update changes, give you information about the iPadOS 15.5 release date and time, tell you about the iPadOS 15.5 beta and more.
iPadOS 15.5 beta
If you want to try iPadOS 15.5 on your iPad right now, you can do so.
Apple has pushed the iPadOS 15.5 beta to developers who are enrolled in the Beta Software Program. A developer account requires you to pay Apple money while the Beta Software is free for anyone with a working Apple ID and a compatible device.
Before you download the iPadOS 15.5 beta on your iPad, you’ll need to remember that pre-release software usually suffers from bugs and performance issues.
These issues can affect the performance of your core apps and the battery life and overall speed of your iPad, making the beta program less than an ideal daily driver.
You should be able to fix some issues yourself, but some bugs and performance issues will likely require a fix from Apple in a future beta release or the official iPadOS 15.5 release.
If you can’t stand the beta performance, you can downgrade the software even though Apple only signs iPadOS 15.4.1. The downgrade path has been closed for older iPadOS updates, such as iPadOS 15.4.
Apple is currently working on iPadOS 15.5 beta 3.
iPadOS 15.5 Release Date
Apple has not confirmed an iPadOS 15.5 release date and the software will likely remain in testing alongside iOS 15.5 for several weeks.
As of now, we expect the final release to come sometime late April or May along with iOS 15.5 for iPhone and macOS Monterey 12.4 for Mac.
iPadOS 15.5 release time
We don’t have an official release date for iPadOS 15.5, but we know exactly when Apple will release the software on any day of your choosing.
The official release of iPadOS 15.5 is likely to arrive around 10 AM Pacific. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for software updates to appear, so don’t be surprised if the update shows up a few minutes after 10 am.
Here’s what you can expect from when iPadOS 15.5 is released in other US time zones:
- Eastern – 1 pm
- Middle – 12 noon
- The mountain – 11 am
Apple will also release iPadOS 15.5 beta updates to developers and those enrolled in the Beta Software Program around 10 AM Pacific as well. The company usually releases new beta versions every 1-2 weeks.
Keep these times in mind if you plan to install the new beta version of iPadOS 15.5, or the official release of iPadOS 15.5, right away.
iPadOS 15.5 ميزات Features
Important Apple updates (xx) always bring new features, security patches and improvements under the hood for iPad users and that’s what to expect from iPadOS 15.5.
The developers are looking into the beta version of iPadOS 15.5 and have found some minor tweaks, but nothing substantial so far. For now, it looks like iPadOS 15.5 will be a relatively minor upgrade.
Apple may add or subtract from the iPadOS 15.5 change history during the trial period, so keep an eye out for changes as the beta progresses.
Jailbreak iPadOS 15.5
If you are still jailbreaking, avoid the iPadOS 15.5 beta.
We don’t expect developers to release a tool compatible with the iPadOS 15.5 beta. They haven’t released one for the official iPadOS 15 release yet, and that release might not come for some time.
We’ll let you know when we learn more.
