In addition to iOS 16, Apple has released new versions of iOS 15.7 and iPadOS 15.7. The iOS 15.7 update is aimed at those who are unable to update to ‌iOS 16‌, while iPadOS 15.7 is available as we await the launch of iPadOS 16 in October.


Software updates can be downloaded over the air to eligible iPhones by going to Settings> General> Software Update.

The iOS 15.7 and iPadOS 15.7 updates address multiple kernel vulnerabilities as well as address security issues with Contacts, Maps, Safari, Safari Extensions, Links, and WebKit.

Apple claims that one of the kernel vulnerabilities has been actively exploited, so those who cannot upgrade to ‌iOS 16‌ should install iOS 15.7 as soon as possible and iPad owners should upgrade to iOS 15.7.
