iOS 15 was quite buggy at launch. A lot of users complained about lags, slow response, performance issues, and bad battery life when iOS 15 was released. Many iOS 15 features were also delayed due to the system not being stable enough to introduce new ones. Recently, issues like iMessage sending read receipts even when turned off and Safari exposing data to websites were reported. All in all, we can conclude that iOS 15 wasn't the most stable iOS release ever.

Apple knows iOS 15 was a buggy release

But it seems that Apple is trying to change that with iOS 15.3. Yesterday, Apple released iOS 15.3 Release Candidate to developers and public beta testers. It comes with the build number of iOS 15.3 RC (19D49). While the new iOS version doesn't come with flashy features, it does come with a lot of bug fixes and vulnerability patches. I've been running iOS 15.3 on my iPhone 12 since iOS 15.3 Beta 2 and I can vouch for its stability — it's the most stable iOS 15 version I've ever used.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

Most importantly, Apple has patched the Safari data leak bug which allowed other websites to access your Google ID. iOS 15.3 RC version is the same Apple will release to the general public next week. If you want, you can install iOS 15.3 RC on your iPhone right now. Though if you're looking for features like Universal Control and support for IDs in the Wallet app, they're still missing in this iOS 15 release.
