This week Apple released two iOS updates delivering new features, bug fixes, and security enhancements. While iOS 16.4 was widely anticipated, the company also rolled out iOS 15.7.4 to ensure iOS 15 users are protected from the most recently discovered security threats. iPhone owners are strongly encouraged to update to the latest versions of iOS as soon as possible. Navigate to Settings -> General -> Software Update to start the process.
With the release of iOS 16, Apple broke new ground by giving iPhone owners the choice to stay with the previous version. For these iPhone users, Apple continues to deliver iOS 15 updates when required for security.
Most of the focus lately has been on iOS 16, Apple's latest iPhone operating system. Apple has also provided an important security update to iOS 15. This means that Apple has released two updates side-by-side, iOS 15.7 and iOS 16. iPhone owners can elect to install the iOS 15.7 patch or do a full upgrade to iOS 16.
The day to update your iPhone is today. iOS 15.5 has dropped with over 30 security patches alongside the usual feature enhancements and bug fixes. With WWDC and iOS 16 beta coming soon, this may be the last version of iOS 15 to launch ahead of the annual event. For anyone running behind on updating their iPhone, now would be a great time to shore up security by installing iOS 15.5. As always, Apple provides the latest operating system to compatible devices at no extra cost.
Apple has added more features to the accessibility settings on iPhone and iPad. Now users can customize settings for individual apps. Each app has its own design and functionality, which could mean things are more difficult to use. iOS can be configured to apply custom settings such as larger text or increased contrast to a particular app. Once set, these settings will only affect the chosen app.
Per-app settings can be configured for any number of apps, without changing any settings elsewhere.
