4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 15.7.6 & 11 Reasons You Should
Install iOS 15.7.6 for a New Way to Restore an Apple Watch
While it was unlisted in the official iOS 15.4 change log, the software brought a useful change to Apple Watch users. You'll get this change with iOS 15.7.6 if you missed iOS 15.7.5, iOS 15.7.4, iOS 15.7.3, iOS 15.7.2, iOS 15.7.1, iOS 15.7, iOS 15.6.1, iOS 15.6, iOS 15.5, iOS 15.4.1 and iOS 15.4.
According to new Apple documentation, users with iOS 15.7.6/iOS 15.7.5/iOS 15.7.4/iOS 15.7.3/iOS 15.7.2/iOS 15.7.1/iOS 15.7/iOS 15.6.1/iOS 15.6/iOS 15.5/iOS 15.4.1/iOS 15.4 on their iPhone and watchOS 8.5 or later on their Apple Watch can restore their Apple Watch with a nearby iPhone.
The document says your Apple Watch may show an "animation asking you to bring it close to an iPhone if your watch experiences a problem that requires it to be updated or restored." It might also show a red exclamation point.
If that happens, you can now follow these steps:
If that doesn't work, Apple says you'll need to check your Wi-Fi connection. You'll want to try using a 2.4GHz network instead of 5GHz and make sure that you're not on a captive or 802.1X network.

Thx for this! I think I’ll stay with 14.8 for the foreseeable, eh. More and more storage on my poor old 6s is being used by all these ‘great’ upgrades. You’d think they want me to buy a new phone. Lol❤️❤️

After installing the 15.1.1, mu iPhone 12 has slowed down considerably and sometimes freezes or won’t open different apps at all! I really wish I hadn’t updated it!

After downloading iOS 15.1 on my iPad Pro the SD card camera adapter isn’t recognised! I work as part time photographer, and always download to iPad. How do I get this to work again please, I use it every day. It was fine on earlier versions. I don’t use a laptop. Depend on my trusty iPad Pro.
Thanks for any help.

Unfortunately I got sucked in into upgrading my iPhone 8 to the iOS 15.3 Version and imo it’s the absolute WORST update that iOS has put out there.
Waaay too many BUGS and Glitches, especially with the Keyboard and it’s Cursor when trying to place the Cursor. But there’s also a Ton of other Bugs.
It just sucks that Apple Won’t allow us to Go Back to whatever Previous Version that we want.
Totally feels like Apple is Pushing people into Buying New Phones with All these Buggy Updates hurting our phones!!
If it wasn’t the case, then I see absolutely No Reason that Apple Can’t create an Update that has NO BUGS, especially with all the Technology out there.
Seems like almost every Update has Bugs and I feel that there’s No Reason for it.
Can’t Apple just hire people who KNOW what they’re doing in order to Create an Update WITHOUT BUGS!?
I’m almost ready to make a Switch and say Adios Apple!

When I downloaded 15.7.3 in iPhone 7 Plus Siri started using 20 to 30 % of battery, Had to shut off, uses 5 % shut off ?
My opinion, if phone meeting your requirements, no download!!

When I downloaded 15.7.5 my iphone7 shut down and the apple logo flashed on and off continuously. I put it in recovery mode and tried to force start it without any luck. Now it won’t upgrade or do a factory reset. In other words the upgrade has ruined my previously faultless phone. Thanks apple!!!
