Older and wiser(?) now? I wait at least a week now for my mobile OS upgrades,
I'm just getting to the point of wondering whether I should do the jump from iPad iOS 13.3.1 up to 15.x and/or Jailbreak my 12.9" iPad Pro.

No sense or reason to be on the Leading Edge of any iOS pack... But I understand one cannot go back if one does not like iOS 15.x versions and everything is still working fairly well for my Limited use.

But then again, you are not getting the security updates in the newer versions. Depending on your use, this could leave you vulnerable to attacks on the vulnerabilities that the new updates fix.
Not vulnerable to anything really, considering there is not much more more personal info on my Macs than what could be found in any public directory or telephone book, except maybe my age. But thanks for the cautionary note.

The main issue I was running into with my older iPhone 6s, was that some of the updates introduces a significant battery drain issue. That usually got sorted after the next one or two iOS updates.
That was one of the main reasons we didn't bother upgrading my wife's 6s and going on many user reports regarding some of the last iOS 15.x updates, the battery draw problem was not resolved properly for many users, so I guess we will just leave it where it is. At least for now.

I have read that once one installs the iOS 15.x upgrades, one cannot go back to an earlier iOS version, so why take a chance when at least everything is working properly and the battery still lasts a decent amount of time.

Actually, I don't think there is anything among the new iOS 16 Features except maybe in Dictation that my arthritic hands would appreciate, that either of us could use or actually need with either of our iDevices, 12.9" iPad Pro, iPad Air or iPhone 6s looking at the list:

It is interesting what some actually consider an improvement and I am guessing would actually use some of them. But I guess it is nice to have a choice.
