Apple has released new updates for the iOS, watchOS, macOS and tvOS just last night. If you own an Apple device, you might want to update it now. The latest versions of the OS introduce minor changes that mainly focus on fixing bugs and improving the security, contrary to the last update versions that rolled out some major features including the Theater Mode in watchOS, and multiple apps on the iOS. However, it’s still an important update to run your Apple OS smoothly.
The iOS update is a bit behind schedule since the last one came on April 3rd this year. Currently, little information is available about what the new update does apart from fixing bugs and security. Apple does not give full details of it either in its release note. The download size of the update varies with the iOS device you own, but the average range is about 160 – 200 MB. Apple iOS v.10.3.2 is available for the iPhone 5 and above, iPad 4th generation and above, iPad mini 2 and iPod touch 6th generation and above. Although the next version will be announced next month, it might not be available until iPhone 8 is released.
Unlike the last watchOS update, v.3.2 that introduced incredible features like the Theater Mode, new watch face colors and the SiriKit applications, the watchOS v.3.2.2 does not come with any remarkable feature known yet. Again, like the iOS, the watchOS v.3.2.2 focuses on fixing minor bugs.
The update fixes bugs and issues mainly related to the audio of the macOS devices. The audio shutter through USB headphones is the prime target of this new update. The macOS Sierra Update v.10.12.5 also lets you setup Windows 10 Creator Update through Boot Camp. You can download it from the Mac Store.
Like the other operating systems, tvOS v.10.2.1 fixes bugs in Apple TV devices. You can easily download this new version through the System Menu of your TV.
Should you upgrade your Apple device?
The new Apple updates might seem like minor change but the company encourages you to upgrade your devices for better security. New updates are speculated to come out in June this year and we are anticipating them to make major headlines.
