iOS 15.6, iPadOS 15.6, macOS 12.5, watchOS 8.7 and tvOS 15.6 are released! [atualizado]

Just over a week after releasing the versions Release Candidate of operating systems (including additional ones: 1, 2) — and after five test versions — Apple finally released today the iOS 15.6 (compilation 19G71), O iPadOS 15.6 (ditto), the macOS Monterey 12.5 (21G72), O watchOS 8.7 (19U66), O tvOS 15.6 (19M65) it’s the HomePod 15.6 Software (ditto) for everyone who has compatible devices.

In addition to the above systems, Apple also released the macOS Big Sur 11.6.8 (compilation 20G730).

As we have explained in recent weeks, these versions do not present significant news, since Apple is already working on the test versions of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura 13, watchOS 9 and tvOS 16 — which should arrive in September/October and already have a public beta. Instead, updates only bring traditional bug fixes and incremental improvements.

In the case of iOS, it is worth noting that version 15.6 adds a new feature in the Apple TV app that allows you to restart broadcasting a sporting event even if it has already started, as well as options to pause, rewind and fast forward.

Here are the changelogs of the systems:

iOS 15.6 includes improvements, bug fixes, and security updates.

  • The TV app adds the option to restart, pause, rewind or fast forward a live game that has already started
  • Fixes an issue where Tweaks could continue to show that the device storage was full even when there was space available
  • Fixes an issue where braille devices could be slow or unresponsive when navigating text in Mail
  • Fixes an issue in Safari where a tab could go back to a previous webpage

iPadOS 15.6 includes improvements, bug fixes, and security updates.

  • The TV app adds the option to restart, pause, rewind or fast forward a live game that has already started
  • Fixes an issue where Tweaks could continue to show that the device storage was full even when there was space available
  • Fixes an issue where braille devices could be slow or unresponsive when navigating text in Mail
  • Fixes an issue in Safari where a tab could go back to a previous webpage
  • Fixes an issue where the iPad mini (6th generation) might not detect a charger or other USB‑C accessory

Some features may not be available in all regions or Apple devices.

macOS Monterey 12.5 includes improvements, bug fixes, and security updates.

  • The TV app adds the option to restart, pause, rewind or fast forward a live game that has already started
  • Fixes an issue in Safari where a tab could go back to a previous webpage

Some features may not be available in all regions or Apple devices.

This update includes important improvements, bug fixes, and security updates.

Software version 15.6 includes Siri voice recognition support in Mandarin (Mainland China, Taiwan), Cantonese (Mainland China, Hong Kong) and Japanese (Japan). This update also includes performance and stability improvements.

Additionally, the update also fixes a bug in iOS Settings that caused the system to display a false storage full alert, as well as another issue in Mail that caused Braille devices to slow down when navigating text. Safari, in turn, no longer has the bug that made the browser return to a previous page without the user’s command.

It is always worth remembering that, although they may not have great news, these updates bring greater stability and security to Apple’s operating systems. So it’s always a good idea to update your device as soon as possible.

Apple did not specify in the changelog HomePod Software 15.6, but the update also adds language support Swedish and Norwegian to the Crab — which means that the company is in the process of launching the HomePod mini in Sweden and Norway, as had already been aired last February.

It is worth noting that Apple has also been testing language support Danish and Finnish in recent months, but there is no information on when this will be officially available.
