Some sites are saying it is critical to do the update on all Apple devices. It has been posted today and prevents some form of spyware.
Started my update a few minutes ago. Up to 14.8 for the iPhone.
Good stuff thanks
Update went well.
Just updated my iPhone and Apple Watch both
Only problem by updating is that some of the APPS I've had for a long time sometimes will not work anymore because the developers don't update the APP!
In my experience (several iPads) I've never found a reputable APP that didn't work after the Apple update. I also typically find some APP updates available within a day or two. I updated yesterday, and today found updates for three APPS.
Yes time to update immediately for my daily drivers. But for my rarely used devices, I'll wait for iOS 15 to update.
Apple's iOS 14.8 was released on Monday, and the small update contains a big security fix. The latest version of Apple's mobile operating system repairs a vulnerability reportedly exploited by invasive spyware called Pegasus that can potentially turn on your phone's camera and microphone, and record messages, texts, emails and calls.
Various sources say version 15 will be out in about a week.
I downloaded 14.8 on my iPhone 8+ without any visible problems during the download, or since.

All set with no issues
So, we all did the update - but here we go again.
14.8 was a highly recommended security update; 15.0 is a feature update. Go to https://www.apple.com/ipados/ipados-15/ to see what 15.0 will do for you.
According to an article I saw last week, the released version of IOS 15 is still a beta version, released to meet a marketing deadline, and may well have a significant number of bugs.
I have no knowledge of whether or not this is an accurate statement, but I plan to hold off downloading IOS 15, just as a precaution.

Update to 15.0 was trouble free, took about 40 minutes. The weather app came up as Cupertino CA athough I’m on the East Coast and location services is on. I had to manually set location to get it to stick on my home weather.
