ios 15.7 & ipados 15.7 update released with security fixes

Apple has released iOS 15.7 and iPadOS 15.7 for iPhone and iPad users.

The update is available to iPhone users as an alternative to the freshly released iOS 16 update for iPhone, and offers security fixes for iPad users given that iPadOS 16 is not available until next month.

Most iPhone users should simply install iOS 16 since it offers new features, whereas iOS 15.7 simply offers security patches and no changes or features.

How to Download & Update to iOS 15.7 & iPadOS 15.7

Don’t forget to backup the iPhone or iPad to iCloud or a computer through Finder or iTunes before installing any system software update.

  1. Open the “Settings” app on iPhone or iPad
  2. Go to “General”
  3. Go to “Software Update”
  4. Choose to “Download and Install” for iOS 15.7 or iPadOS 15.7

The iOS 15.7 and iPadOS 15.7 update weighs around 300mb and is pretty quick to download, though installing it requires the device to restart as usual.

iPhone and iPad users can also install the updates through a computer by using Finder on a Mac, or iTunes on a Windows PC. Optionally, advanced users can install the updates through IPSW firmware files, which also requires a computer.
