The Apple business released version 15.5 of iOS and iPadOS on Monday. This will almost certainly be the last significant update of this version of the operating system of the brand’s mobile devices. In addition to the cosmetic and functional changes, the security patches were the most notable addition. The business resolved thirty-four vulnerabilities that were discovered in version 15.4 of the aforementioned operating systems, which was made available around two months ago.

Apple has prepared a list of vulnerabilities, including arbitrary code execution with kernel or system privileges, sandbox limitation bypass, denial of service, and elevation of privilege, despite the fact that no new security concerns have been identified.

According to Apple, the following problems have been addressed in the most recent version of its software: Processing a maliciously designed picture may result in the execution of arbitrary code. It’s possible that processing a “big input” may result in a denial of service.

  1. A rogue website’s ability to track visitors when they are using Safari’s private browsing mode
  2. The ability to access photographs directly from the lock screen (requires physical access)
  3. Execution of code due to the processing of harmful website content

It is important to update the system as soon as possible in order to enhance its stability and prevent any assaults by cybercriminals. Taking into mind these and other security or operational faults inherent in the system, it is preferable to update it as soon as feasible.

How to update the iPhone system

Before performing the update, it is important to make a backup of the cell phone information, which can be uploaded to iCloud. Then, with a good battery charge and WiFi connection, it only remains to follow the following steps:

  1. Enter Settings
  2. Go to the General menu
  3. Select Software Update
  4. Identify that the update is 15.5 and choose it
  5. Select Install Now
