Which Devices Are Eligible For iOS 15.5?
iOS 15.5 is compatible with all iPhone models introduced after the iPhone 6S and iPod touch generations 7 and 8. Additionally, all iPad Pro models, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad Generation 5 and later, and iPad mini 4 and later are compatible with iPadOS 15.5.
What’s New In iOS 15.5?
With iOS 15.5, Apple Cash buttons are added to the wallet app. These buttons – Request and Send – will enable users to quickly send and request money using Apple Cash. The update also adds a new feature to the Weather application. At the bottom of the Weather app, the ‘Report an issue’ button is now more prominent. The button will make it simple for users to report inaccurate data within the application.
According to a report by XDA Developers, the update also makes reference to Apple Classical, rumored music streaming application that the company is reportedly developing right now. This indicates that the app may launch soon. Additionally, Apple Podcasts now includes a new setting that limits the number of episodes stored on your device, automatically deleting older episodes as new ones are added. The changelog also notes a fix for home automation issues triggered by people entering or exiting the home.
The update also includes over twenty-five internal security fixes. Among them are vulnerabilities that allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service, malicious applications to execute arbitrary code with system privileges, privilege elevation, and disclosure of restricted memory. If they have not already, users with an eligible iPhone or iPad should receive a notification regarding the availability of the new update. The user can then follow the instructions on the screen to update their device.
