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.
Not running iOS 15? Apple has released an important security update for all devices with iOS 14 installed. There are many performance improvements and bug fixes included as well. While the update does not bring any new features to the table, it keeps iOS 14 secure by patching a number of security vulnerabilities. Whether your device is older or you've decided to postpone installing iOS 15, it's a good idea to keep iOS current.
Apple offers a new option to iOS 14 users this fall with the release of iOS 15. Instead of pushing all compatible iOS devices to upgrade to the latest firmware, Apple will let users decide whether to upgrade to iOS 15 or stay with the current version. Fans of iOS 14 still get ongoing security updates and bug fixes.
Apple continues to improve Siri's capabilities and with iOS 14.5 the voice assistant gets brand new voice options. The revamped voices are in the English language, with both a female and male addition. These updated voices are recorded from live speakers, then processed using Apple's Neural text to speech engine. The engine helps spontaneously generated phrases sound more realistic, delivering smoother speech that flows naturally.
The release candidate for iOS 14.4 has arrived in developer's hands. This means the iPhone update could make its way to Apple device owners in just a few days. iOS 14 has already had several improvements and bug fixes issued by Apple. So what's in store for iOS 14.4?
