I’m glad to report that iOS 15 Beta 1 (at least on my iPhone 11) is one of the best firstContinue reading “Should you install iOS 15 Beta 1?”
The iPad is missing one obvious app, weather. I wish I’d thought to write this post by 9to5Mac, it’s great and gets to why I’m mystified why the iPad app isn’t there.
