iOS 15.3 and Co. released: Updates are not only available for iPhones

The work on the service update in version 15.3 for the iPhone is completely finished and Apple releases iOS 15.3. Above all, Apple fixes a serious bug. Mac, iPad and Apple Watch are also getting major updates.

Update from January 27, 2022: : A large number of system updates have been available for installation on the Apple servers for a few hours. In addition to iOS 15.3 for iPhones , the wave of updates also includes iPadOS 15.3 for iPads, macOS 12.2 for Macs, watchOS 8.4 for Apple Watch, tvOS 15.3 for Apple TV and even the HomePod speakers are getting a new system version (15.3). Apple itself is a bit reluctant to describe the service, generally speaking of bug fixes and security updates (source: Apple).

In any case , Apple is addressing and fixing a recently discovered serious security bug within Safari, which was already evident with the publication of the release candidates last week (source: 9to5Mac). This error made it possible not only to intercept information about any Google account that was used, but also the surfing activities themselves were open and visible - we reported.

Original article:

Just a few days ago, punctually before the end of the year, Apple released iOS 15.2, the second major service update of iOS 15 for the iPhone. With numerous innovations in the package, for example the app data protection report. But the work does not stop, now Apple is already distributing iOS 15.3 in a first pre-release version to the developers , as well as iPadOS 15.3 for the iPad (source: Apple).

iOS 15.3 has nothing new to offer

Of course, one wonders: What innovations are in the update? The answer to this is still sobering. This is how the experts at 9to5Mac sum up the search:

"It was possible for 9to5Mac to download, analyze and even install multiple builds of iOS 15.3 beta 1. However, there doesn't seem to be a lot of new stuff in these builds. More specifically, there are some internal changes related to Siri APIs and a few tweaks to Apple apps like News, but overall, iOS 15.3 beta 1 only comes with bug fixes and general improvements."

Good to know, how do we actually set up iOS on a new iPhone? Here is the answer in the video:

What features might Apple be holding back?

Does so little new then justify the bigger step towards iOS 15.3? It seems the true innovations remain a mystery and may only be revealed as development progresses. After all, there are still one or two features that Apple owes us and that are demonstrably late. The support for seamless control (Universal Control) between iPads and Macs and the support of ID cards in Apple's wallet should be mentioned here, but the latter function is only relevant for the US market anyway.

It is quite possible that Apple is planning to integrate both features in iOS 15.3 or iPadOS 15.3, in any case Universal Control has already been officially postponed to spring 2022.

Speaking of which, when could Apple target an iOS 15.3 release? Judging by the hidden build name ("Winter2022"), a release should probably be sometime between January and March 2022 , so maybe a little too early for Universal Control? We'll have to let Apple surprise us and wait for the next beta versions in the coming weeks.
