Most iPhone users are already on the new version, but some still seem to want to stay on iOS 15 going forward.

Those using older versions of iOS 15 could also be among those who can no longer upgrade to newer versions, but whose devices still work. Apple has in recent years even started offering security updates for older operating systems like iOS 12, even if those devices no longer have active software support.
