Apple has launched iOS 15.5 ahead of the Annual Developer Conference. The latest version of the iPhone operating system has many features circling around the regulations and some of them are also beneficial for customers. Many of the changes are smaller tweaks and most of the updates are laying ground toward greater change in the future.
Even a few updates are enough to make big changes and Apple knows it. That’s why the iOS 15.5 launched earlier than the WWDC 2022. Apple has brought lots of changes and updates in its iOS 15.5 such as including a pair of buttons to the Wallet App, Podcasts app, and fixes for bugs. Let’s have a bird’s-eye view of what updates Apple has brought through the latest iPhone operating system.
How to download iOS 15.5?
On Monday, May 16, Apple released iOS 15.5 across almost most of the Apple devices. To download iOS 15.5, simply go to Settings > General > Software Update > Download and Install. The latest iPhone operating system is about 630 MB.
The digitization of the world is unprecedented in this era. Apple has made some essential tweaks and updates in iOS 15.5. The most thrilling change in iOS 15.5 is the inclusion of “Request” and “Send” buttons for Apple Cash. These features of the iOS 15.5 have made payment a petri dish for users and can receive or send payment within the blink of an eye.
Making manual tweaks is always a pain in the neck and no customer would favor such a feature. iPhone storage is one of the most important things and not a single customer would like to see it filled up with frivolous and old episodes. Apple has made a major tweak in the Podcast app that will delete the old episodes automatically once you set the limit to storage. So, iOS 15.5 allows you to change the settings in your podcast app with little trouble.
iTunes Pass renamed Apple Balance
iOS 15.5 besides bringing updates and changes in the software has brought some unique updates as well. iTunes Pass is renamed Apple Balance in iOS 15.5. There’s now a separate card in Apple Wallet for Apple balance.
Sensitive locations in Photo Memories
Life is full of difficulties, and Apple has not even ignored it. iOS 15.5 tweaks the Memories function of photos. It won’t recommend memories from sensitive locations as it can trigger some gloomy and doleful memories.
Updates for macOS
Besides changes and updates in iOS, Apple has also launched some updates for macOS. Apple has included a fix for Apple’s Studio Display monitor’s poor webcam quality. The update for macOS would reduce the noise and boost the color accuracy. The webcam performance is still subpar however, some improvements are praiseworthy.
