New features, bug fixes and security patches: Apple releases iOS 15.5, iPadOS 15.5 . from

Written by admin

Apple today released iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5. The updates are available for iPhone 6s and later, all iPad Pro models, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad fifth generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch seventh generation.

With the update, users will notice a number of buttons (called “Request” and “Send”) that have been added to the Apple Wallet that allows users to request or send money faster via Messages with the Apple Cash card. Note that Apple Pay is now called “Apple Cash” in the Messages app. The physical Apple Card is now called the “Titanium Card” in the Wallet app.
To prevent podcasts from taking up all of your iPhone’s storage space, the update allows you to limit the number of podcast episodes stored on your iPhone and delete older episodes automatically. Wi-Fi signal bars have been added in the Home app to let you know that your HomePod is connected to the app.

In iPadOS 15.5, the beta label has been removed from Universal Control, making the feature official and bug-free. With Universal Controls, you can use just one mouse, trackpad, and keyboard across multiple devices, such as iPads and Macs.

Perhaps the most interesting change in iOS 15.5 is that it includes “External Link Account Entitlement” for reader apps. These are apps that deliver digital content in formats such as magazines, newspapers, books, audio, music, and video. After the update, developers offering reader apps on the App Store will have the option to link subscribers to a third-party website to create an account outside of Apple’s in-app payment system.

With the update, the Photos app gets a new “Sensitive Locations” list. Photos taken in an area considered “sensitive” will not appear in memories. The list includes “several concentration camps and Holocaust memorials.

There are more than 25 security fixes related to iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 that were listed in Apple’s Security Updates Page† To update your iPhone or iPad, go to SettingsGeneralsoftware update
