Apple customers are not a big fan of the new versions
IPhone and iPad users are visibly unmoved by the arrival of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. A study by the US smartphone reseller site SellCell shows that most users consider the upcoming updates to be minor and are not attracted to their novelties. The study also claims that more than 74% of customers would prefer Apple to choose a different name for the iPhone 13.
The US smartphone resale site SellCell has just published a study on the new features that Apple has just announced on iPhone and iPad, especially iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Usually major updates are more popular with users because they allow them to benefit from new features throughout the lifecycle of their device.
Obviously, some versions arouse more excitement than others. And obviously the new features of the next updates of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 are far from unleashing the crowds. More than half of the 3000 users surveyed (52.6%) say they are “somewhat” or “not at all” interested in updating iOS / iPadOS 15. 28.1% of those questioned say they are “moderately” interested in the next version of their OS.

In the “minus”, users regret the absence of truly interactive Widgets (32.3%), Always-on Display (21%), professional tools for iPad such as Xcode and Final Cut Pro X (14.9%), still too limited support for external screens on iPad (13.2%), or the fact that iPads and iPhones still do not support multiple user accounts (8%).

Therefore, the innovations recently announced by Apple on iPhone and iPad make the “generation 15” of the operating system one of the dullest of recent years. The study does not stop there.

The prospect that the next iPhone will be called 74% of users dislike “iPhone 13” would prefer that Apple choose another name.
