What you need to know
- Apple’s iOS 15 fixes a problem we’ve had with the date and time picker since iOS 14 arrived.
- We no longer have to type the date and time and can use an iOS 13-style wheel.
That alone would have made iOS 15 worth a download.
After breaking the date and time picker in iOS 14, Apple seems to have settled on something that mixes it with the previous iOS 13-style picker instead. And it’s way better.
As people who have installed the iOS 15 beta have found out, Apple has done away with the previous situation that required users to type their time and date in. Now, we have a combination of that keypad input, as well as the wheel-style picker that we used for years up until iOS 14 came along.
Apple hit a middle ground between iOS 14’s date picker and all previous versions. Feels just right, in the Goldilocks Zone. pic.twitter.com/t2woeQcdKW

iOS 15: They fixed the time picker!!!
It’s actually even better – scroll or tap to type. pic.twitter.com/lyc5RLuQLA

The move might arguably make worth updating to iOS 15 worth it alone, especially if the small date and time picker has been driving you mad since the iOS 14 betas from last year. Like a certain someone I won’t name.
Me. I’m the certain someone.
The new solution is arguably the best of both the iOS 13 and iOS 14 worlds and it’s great to see Apple listening to feedback here.
