Apple releases iOS 15.5 with improvements to the Podcasts app
Apple released iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 to the public on Monday after the RC version was released last week. The update doesn’t bring any significant changes, but it does improve the Apple Cash and Podcasts app.
New Features in iOS 15.5
Apple says iOS 15.5 brings improvements to Apple Cash, with support for more easily requesting and sending money from the Apple Cash card in the Wallet app. There’s also a new feature in Apple Podcasts to help preserve your iPhone storage space and some bug fixes for HomeKit.
Here are the full release notes for iOS 15.5 according to Apple:
iOS 15.5 includes the following improvements and bug fixes:
- Wallet now lets Apple Cash customers send and request money with their Apple Cash card
- Apple Podcasts includes a new setting to limit episodes stored on your iPhone and automatically delete older ones
- Fixes an issue where home automation fails triggered by people entering or leaving
Here are some other iOS 15.5 changes we’ve spotted so far, not mentioned in Apple’s release notes:
You can update your devices by going to the Settings app, then General > Software update. Check Apple’s website for details on the security fixes included with iOS 15.5.
It’s unclear if this update will be the last before the first beta of iOS 16, which is expected to arrive shortly after WWDC 2022 in June.
