Apple is rolling out iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 updates to compatible iPhones and iPads today. The program includes some interesting new features, including the possibility to insert money from your Apple Cash Card into your Wallet and the automatic deletion (up to a limit) of podcasts. You can already download the update.
Apple continues to release minor updates between major iOS releases, as is the tradition. iOS 15.4 was the latest version. It introduced several new features, including Face ID with a mask and improved battery life for older iPhones. iOS 16 is being widely discussed, but Cupertino is now rolling out version 15.5 of their operating system, just two months after its predecessor.
This update is minor and does not attempt to transform the OS’s interface. There are however some novelties that need to be mentioned. Apple has added a new option to the Maps app that allows users to send requests and receive money using their Apple Cash card. It is now much easier to transfer money from one account into another.
IOS 15.5 AND IPADOS 15.5 UPDATES ARE HERE
Apple Podcasts now deletes episodes that have been downloaded to the device after a set period. This is another feature to be added to the operating system. Every new episode downloaded to the iPhone or iPad will cause the deletion the previous episodes. The latter will stop occupying storage space unnecessary.
The bug that prevented automations from being triggered has been fixed. In addition, Apple claims to have corrected more than 25 security vulnerabilities with this new update, although the manufacturer specifies that no hacker has exploited them to its knowledge. If you haven’t received a notification on your device yet, you can install this new version by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
Bloomberg Editor Mark Gurman published information about the iOS 16 operating systems. It is expected to be revealed at the Apple WWDC developers conference. The event will start on June 6, this year.
A Bloomberg writer was asked which of Apple’s operating systems he thought would get the most attention at WWDC; and he replied: “As usual, it will probably be iOS. In this case, iOS 16.” Gurman added that he does not expect a complete redesign of the operating system; but expects to see what he calls “new ways of interacting.” The update, he said, will include “fresh Apple apps”. Last month, Gurman said he was looking forward to iOS 16’s new updated notification system and new health tracking capabilities.
