Apple is currently rolling out the last major update to iOS and iPadOS before the new versions drop in the fall. iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 patch 34 security issues, so it’s a wise decision to update as soon as possible.
Other changes in iOS 15.5 include updates to Apple Cash and Podcasts. Apple has also fixed a minor issue where “home automations, triggered by people arriving or leaving, may fail.” They’ve also fixed an issue with the iPhone SE (3rd gen) that could cause it to “unexpectedly shutdown.”
If you have been looking forward to the new updates, or simply want to make sure your account is secure as possible, we’ll show you how to update your iPhone and iPad below.
How to update your iPhone to iOS 15.5 or iPad to iPadOS 15.5
It’s time to update to iOS 15.5 or iPadOS 15.5, which fixes a total of 34 vulnerabilities, ranging from arbitrary code execution to privilege elevations.
Open the Settings app on your iPhone
Then, tap on General
Tap on Software Update

The last step is to tap on Install and wait for the iPhone to finish updating and reboot itself
That covers updating your iPhone to the latest version of iOS. For iPad users, the process is the same. If you want to make sure your apps and iPhone are always up to date, make sure to turn on automatic updates.
Now your iPhone is on the latest software version and will be better protected from issues. It’s always a good idea to keep your iOS devices updated, as Apple is constantly patching out issues.
