Apple has started rolling out the latest iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 update for iPhone and iPad users. The new update does not bring as many significant features as the previous update but focuses primarily on improvements and several minor tweaks.
The new Apple iOS 15.5 update comes with enhancements to Apple’s digital card Apple Cash, and a new feature in Apple Podcasts to help preserve an iPhone’s storage. The update makes it easier to request and send money from the Apple Cash card in the Wallet app. There are new “Request" and “Send" buttons n the Apple Pay Cash section of the Wallet app to make it easier to manage cash directly from the Wallet app.
For Podcasts, users get a new setting to limit episodes stored on an iPhone and automatically delete old ones. There are also fixes with home automation that improves an issue with the feature that gets triggered by people arriving or leaving.
