Apple Releases iOS 15.5 and macOS 12.4

Apple has just released the version 15.5 of iOS and iPadOS as well as macOS 12.4. These software updates are probably the last we’ll see before Apple’s WWDC developer conference in June, and they’re pretty minor overall.

iOS 15.5 brings improvements for Apple Cash, allowing iPhone users to send and request money from their Apple Cash card. There’s also an update to the Podcasts app that brings a new setting to save storage space and automatically delete older saved episodes. Moreover, Apple has fixed a bug causing home automations triggered by people arriving or leaving to fail.

For Mac users, macOS 12.4 brings the same improvements to the Podcasts app available on iOS 15.5. This update will also let users download the Studio Display Firmware Update 15.5, which “refines camera tuning, including improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing.”

Apple also released tvOS 15.5 and HomePod software 15.5 today with no new features. watchOS 8.6 is also available to download today, and this update enables the electrocardiogram (ECG) app and irregular rhythm notifications for Apple Watch users in Mexico.

    Everything updated fine here (also iPadOS 15.6 and Watch OS 8.6). No problems so far.

    Interesting to see that the screen sharing has now moved out of Beta, although it requires a Mac on 12.4 and an iPad on 15.5.
