Apple has released the minor watchOS 8.5.1 software update which adds unknown bug fixes and security fixes to your Apple Watch.
Apple with watchOS 8.5 has fixed a security oversight in the Mail Privacy Protection feature by disabling a loophole that could actually expose your IP addresses.
Earlier today, Apple released updates for iOS, watchOS, and the company's other platforms. There are some standout features mixed in, including using Face ID while wearing a mask (and unlocking your phone without needing an Apple Watch), the arrival of Universal Control, and much more. And there's even a nice little bonus, too.
As we move towards an expected March release date, Apple moves right along with the beta testing process. Which means we have new beta seeds for developers. And, soon enough, public testers.
Apple is issuing minor software updates to several of its platforms today. The primary goal is to fix some lingering issues across the board. However, it doesn't look like there are any major forward facing features in the mix this time around.
It's a little late in the day, but Apple is releasing a software update for the Apple Watch anyway. This time around, it's a minor update in the grand scheme of things, aimed at addressing some lingering issues for everyday users.
Apple has been working on the next update for iOS, and its other platforms, for a bit of time now. The beta process for iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 wasn't as long as some have been in the past, but, considering the fact it doesn't appear the new software updates feature a variety of new features, that is to be expected. Still, the wait is now over.
Widespread adoption of digital keys is still a slow process. But at least it's happening. Apple is helping in its own way, making it possible to store digital keys in the built-in, first-party Wallet app. This should make it easier to get many things done, including accessing your hotel room. And now a new video shows just how easy it can be.
It might be Friday, and it might be one week before Christmas swings around, but that isn't stopping Apple from getting a new beta build out there into the wild. Apple is looking to bring iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 to the public in the near future. Which means the beta process must go on.
Apple has been working on the next update for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 for a bit of time now. Which means we've been working with a variety of different beta seeds over the last couple of months or so. But, now the company is ready for the public release.
Digital keys are supposed to make things easier, and for many people that is indeed the case. But widespread support isn't quite there yet. That's changing today, though, as one of the largest hotel chains out there is adopting the useful function.
Hot on the heels of Apple releasing iOS 15.1.1 to the public earlier this week, which patched a relatively smaller issue, Apple is back with another update. But this one's for the Apple Watch. Specifically, for the Apple Watch Series 7, which has apparently run into some charging issues for some owners out in the wild.
