Apple has released iOS 15.5 (for iPhones) and iPadOS 15.5 (for iPads) for its mobile devices today. This isn’t a major upgrade, as the.1 incrementation suggests, but it does include a couple of new features.
To begin, Apple Cash clients can now send and request money from their Apple Cash card using the Wallet app. Second, the Apple Podcasts app now has a new feature that allows you to limit the number of episodes kept on your device and erase older ones automatically.
Additionally, a bug that caused home automations to fail when people arrived or left has been corrected. There are over 25 security fixes in this new edition as well, none of which were actively exploited to Apple’s knowledge, but if you wish to follow the ‘better safe than sorry’ philosophy, you should update as soon as possible.
Your iPhone or iPad should have already notified you of the update, but if it hasn’t, you can always go into Settings and manually download it. Because Apple’s rollouts aren’t planned, the new software is already available to anyone who wants it.
