Apple rolled out iOS 15.5 update for iPhones and iPads
Apple has started rolling out its latest iOS update for its users. The new update comes just after the release of the 15.4 version last month. The new iOS 15.5 update will be available for a number of Apple models including the iPhone 6s and then all the later versions. iOS 15.5 will also be available for the iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation). The update isn’t that massive, bringing lots of changes to the existing features, but it does have some interesting updates. The Podcast application is one of the most significant upgrades. The Podcast app now includes a new setting that allows users to limit the number of Podcast episodes that can be saved on an iPad or iPhone. Furthermore, the Apple Wallet will now have distinct send and request buttons. iOS 15.5 is also introducing the much-awaited “External Link Account Entitlement” feature. It will allow applications to add a connection to an external website to manage their accounts and other functions.
