iOS 15.6 Features: Everything New in iOS 15.6

Apple today released iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 to the public after two months of beta testing. As these will be some of the final updates to iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, there are a limited number of new features and bug fixes.

iOS 15
We've outlined everything that's new in iOS 15.6 below.

Live Sports Updates

With iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6, the TV app now supports restarting, pausing, rewinding, and fast-forwarding a live sports game that is already in progress, giving TV app users more control over the viewing experience.

Apple has been expanding its live sports content lately, establishing deals with Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer.

Bug Fixes

Other than the new live sports addition, most of the iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 updates are focused on addressing bugs.

Settings App

There's a long-running bug with the Settings app that can cause a device to list the iPhone (or iPad) Storage as full when it is not actually full and there is indeed space left on the device. The update fixes the bug, according to Apple.

Braille Devices

For those that use braille devices, iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 address a bug that can cause them to slow down or stop responding when navigating text in the Mail app.

Safari Tabs

The update also fixes a Safari issue that can cause a tab to revert back to the previous page.
