Having seeded release candidates for iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15 and watchOS 8 to its registered developers and public beta testers, Apple has now officially announced the iOS 15 release date.

One of the many features that Apple revealed earlier this year as part of the unveiling of iOS 15 is called iCloud Private Relay.

With September marching ever closer, Apple's goal to release the next major software updates for its platforms also inches closer.

However, that won't be the case after all.
