Download iOS 15.2.1 Rolling Out with Messages and CarPlay Bug Fixes
Apple has started rolling out the latest iOS 15.2.1 update to users, which comes with a few bug fixes and feature improvements. It includes fixes for CarPlay, Messaging, and even a HomeKit vulnerability. Here’s a look at what’s new in the iOS 15.2.1 update.
iOS 15.2.1 released
The new iOS 15.2.1 update fixes the problem that: didn’t load photos sent with an iCloud link in Messages. It also fixes a CarPlay bug where the third-party CarPlay apps were not responding to user input.
The new iOS update, as suggested by a security document, also provides a solution to a HomeKit problem, which caused a denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. This would cause the iPhone to crash or freeze. The aforementioned vulnerability, first noted by security researcher Trevor Spiniolas, could affect iPhones with iOS 14.7 and later and iPads with iPadOS 14.7 or later.
Apple has also released the iPadOS 15.2.1 update, which fixes similar issues. The updates are available for iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation).
To download the update, go to the Settings of your iPhone or iPad -> General -> Software Update, and the new update should be waiting for you. Hit the “Install” button to get the latest update.
As a reminder, it was just last month when Apple has introduced the iOS 15.2 update. The update included the introduction of the new Apple Music Voice Subscription, the new communication security features for iMessage, the addition of the App Privacy Report function and more.
