Apple has just dropped the public betas of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and watchOS 8.

As a quick recap, these were announced at WWDC 2021 early last month.

iOS 15 features a new FaceTime app, better ways to share your content via SharePlay and new Focus modes that help you focus on the present better.

As for iPadOS 15, it features a completely overhauled multitasking system that's been designed to be more intuitive to use.

watchOS 8 has new Tai Chi and Pilates workouts and a new Mindfulness app that has a new feature called "Reflect" to help you feel better about yourself.

Apple didn't show tvOS 15 during the keynote but it has many of the new features that are coming to iOS 15 such as SharePlay.

To download and try the new OSes, you'll need to sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program.

If you need help installing, 9to5Mac has a detailed guide to walk you through the process.

As usual, back up your device before installing the beta in case something goes wrong. Also, I recommend installing the betas on a secondary device since, well, these are betas that can be unstable and can have bugs.
