Apple releases iOS 15.3.1 with important security updates for your iPhone

iOS-15

It’s been just over two weeks since Apple rolled out iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 on iPhone and iPad. We’re all anxiously awaiting iOS 15.4, which should introduce a number of exciting new features. But before that, another important update has arrived. On Thursday, Apple seeded iOS 15.3.1 to the general public.

Apple says that the update “provides important security updates for your iPhone and fixes an issue that may cause Braille displays to stop responding.” More specifically, there was a problem with WebKit that was leaving iPhone owners vulnerable to malicious web content. As always, we highly recommend updating to the latest software as soon as possible. And that’s especially true when urgent security fixes are involved.
