Apple on Monday released operating systems updates for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Macintosh. In that app, tap General and then Software Update. Both these updates bring quite a few bug fixes as well as a few new features.
Tech giant Apple released multiple security upgrades yesterday for its iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS systems, addressing dozens of security bugs across its devices.
The same is mentioned in the official patch notes for the update, while third-party VPN services and SiriKit auto commands have also both been fixed and patched after the release of iOS 10.3.2.
