Apple has recently released iPadOS 15.5, and watchOS 8.6 updates for iPadOS and watchOS. We have finally received the final version after the first beta builds. The new update comes along with macOS Monterey 12.4 and iOS 15.5.
What’s more, the new iPadOS update will support all iPad Pro variants, including the likes of iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4, and more. On the other hand, the watchOS 8.6 is compatible with every Apple Watch equipped with watchOS 8.
The important thing to note about the new update is that it contains more fixes than any major changes. Apart from that, there are some minor improvements as well. It looks as if Apple is waiting for WWDC 2022 to reveal big updates.

Here is how you can update your Apple Watch
In this section, we will explain the steps that will help you install the new updates on your Apple Watch. The first step is to take the backup of your device either on iCloud or your computer. Once you are done with that, just follow the below steps:
- Connect your watch to a power source as well as connect it to Wi-Fi.
- Now navigate to settings, from settings click on general, then click on Software update.
- Now, if there are software updates available, click on the one you want to install.
It is worth noting that you should leave your Watch on charging during the update process. Once the device is done with the update, it will restart on its own.
What’s new in the iOS 15.5 update?
After the update is installed, Home apps will prompt users about important notification alerts. What’s interesting, it doesn’t matter if your device is on silent or DND, you will still receive the notifications sound. However, this will happen only in certain emergency events.
Apple Pay Cash:
Another new addition is that the Wallet app will let Apple Cash customers send and request money with the help of an Apple Cash card. Moving forward, users will see the Request and Send buttons on the app.
Feature For Podcasts:
The update brings a new setting that will let users limit the number of episodes that users can store locally. The older episodes will be automatically deleted so that the app doesn’t take much space on Apple devices. As you know storage is a big issue for Apple users.
