Apple has released iOS 15.6.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, rolling out shortly via an over-the-air software update.
You can update your device by going to Settings > General > Software Update
With iOS 16, iPadOS 16 and more coming this fall, don’t expect major features to be released in this iOS 15.6.1 update, but rather bug fixes and likely some security and performance updates
Will get my devices updated.
Still can't wait for ios 16. Some nice features coming.
All up to date.
No problems after update.
Apple is directing users of most of its devices to update their software after the company discovered a vulnerability in its operating systems that it says "may have been actively exploited."
In security updates posted online on Wednesday and Thursday, Apple said the vulnerability affects iPhones dating back to the 6S model, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad mini 4 and later, all iPad Pro models and the 7th generation iPod touch.
Apple (AAPL) said the vulnerabilities give hackers the ability to take control of a device's operating system to "execute arbitrary code" and potentially infiltrate devices through "maliciously crafted web content."
The vulnerability also extends to Mac computers running the company's Monterey OS as well as Apple's Safari browser on its Big Sur and Catalina operating systems, the company said in a subsequent update.
Cybersecurity experts urged Apple users to update their devices, with the US government's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency warning that "an attacker could exploit one of these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected device."
The agency said affected users should "apply the necessary updates as soon as possible."
Rumor has it: It's a big security hole!

always good to know about updates.
all three of my devices. Thanks for posting!
with no visible issues. The performance since then has been smooth, so it looks like the update did not introduce any problems.
