After last week’s release of iOS 15.7.4, Apple has now begun the rollout of another update, iOS 15.7.5, for older iPhone and iPad models. The latest update includes crucial security patches that address two vulnerabilities that were possibly under active exploitation. Additionally, Apple has also released an update for iPad devices, known as iPadOS 15.7.5, which addresses the same security issues.
In addition to the iOS updates, Apple has also released security patches for its Mac operating systems. The company has rolled out macOS Big Sur 11.7.6 (20G1231) and macOS Monterey 12.6.5 (21G531) updates, which offer security enhancements for users who have older Macs that are not compatible with the latest macOS Ventura.
The release notes for iOS 15.7.5 do not include any details about new features other than the enhanced security measures. Apple only stated that iOS 15.7.5 “delivers crucial security updates and is highly recommended for all users.”
Last week, Apple rolled out iOS 16.4.1 and macOS Ventura 13.3.1 to address security flaws that were being exploited. Now, the company has released updates for older devices to fix the same vulnerabilities. These updates, iOS 15.7.5 and iPadOS 15.7.5, address two known security issues that had been actively exploited by hackers.
To get iOS 15.7.5 on your iPhone or iPad, you can go to the Settings app and select General, followed by Software Update. The build number for this update is 19H332. This update is available for a number of devices, including all models of the iPhone 6s and 7, the first-generation iPhone SE, the iPad Air 2, the fourth-generation iPad mini, and the seventh-generation iPod touch.
To update your Mac with the latest macOS Big Sur or macOS Monterey software, you can navigate to the System Preferences menu, then select General, and finally click on Software Update.
