Apple has launched a new update for its iPhone and iPad models with iOS 15.2.1 and iPadOS 15.2.1. However, version 15.2.1 is only supposed to fix some minor bugs, but the update weighs a lot with about 970 MB.
iOS 15.2.1 and iPadOS 15.2.1: What’s in the update
Apple has just released iOS 15.2.1 for iPhone models and iPadOS 15.2.1 for the iPad. The new version of the operating system can be downloaded and installed immediately. In the patch details, Apple only mentions two bug fixes, but with a size of around 970 MB, the updates are surprisingly extensive.
On the one hand, the patch addresses a bug that could cause messages to not load photos that were sent via iCloud links. Additionally, it fixes an issue where third-party CarPlay apps might not respond to input. Also, iOS 15.2.1 and iPadOS 15.2.1 finally fixes the known Apple HomeKit security vulnerability.
How do I download the update?
To start the update process, simply navigate to “Settings” on your iPhone or iPad and then select “Software Update” under “General”.
