Apple Releases iOS 15.7 and iPadOS 15.7 With Security Updates

Alongside 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 not able to upgrade to iOS 16, while iPadOS 15.7 is available while we wait for the launch of iPadOS 16 in October.

iOS 15 General Feature Green
The software updates can be downloaded on eligible iPhones over-the-air by going to Settings > General > Software Update.

The iOS 15.7 and iPadOS 15.7 updates address multiple kernel vulnerabilities in addition to fixing security issues with Contacts, Maps, Safari, Safari Extensions, Shortcuts, and WebKit.

Apple says that one of the kernel vulnerabilities was actively exploited, so those who cannot update to iOS 16 should install iOS 15.7 as soon as possible, and iPad owners should update to iOS 15.7.

Probably best to update your devices to 15.7, the most stable version of IOS 15, then update to 16 after a few updates, unless you want to be a ios 16 beta tester of course ?!

Just updated my iPhone and iPad. That appears to be a mistake. The App Store insists that the new Apple Media Services Terms and Conditions be accepted, but all that happens is an error. Can’t update any apps.

UPDATE: No problems updating apps now. It appears to have been a server side issue.

I was given the option to choose from both updates on my 8 Plus. Has iOS 16 been testing well on the iPhone 8+? I feel conflicted now.
