As planned, Apple has released the new updates to its different operating systems, so that both the iPhone and the iPad can now install the new version of iOS. In the case of the Apple Watch, watchOS 8 is also available, but in the case of the Apple Watch you will need to install iOS 15 first.
The Apple TV also receives its long-awaited update, although the news section is also less compared to that of the iPhone and iPad. In the digital home section, the HomePod also receives updates, with long-awaited features. Among them, the default pairing with Apple TV, and volume adjustment based on ambient noise.
While most of the features have already been present since the betas released after WWDC and the RC that came after the presentation, the update is now official. Generally speaking, iOS 15 is available on all devices that iOS 14 was on, more obviously the new iPhone 13. The complete list of compatible devices is as follows:

You can update your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or Apple TV directly from the terminal using OTA updates. For them you just have to go to Settings> General> Software update. For Apple TV, the update is available in Settings> System> Software updates and select Update software.
Remember that before doing a system update, it is recommended to make a system backupEither through iCloud or by connecting the iPhone / iPad to the Mac through the Finder or with iTunes from a Windows PC. In the case of the Apple Watch, the system performs an automatic backup on your iPhone, so you don’t have to worry.
