Apple releases iOS 15.6, iPadOS 15.6, tvOS 15.6, watchOS 8.7, HomePod 15.6, macOS 12.5

Today Apple released updates across all of their operating systems. With iOS 16 and macOS 13 Ventura set for release in the coming two to three months, there is a very good chance this will be the last enhancement update for iOS 15 and macOS 12. Going forward, my suspicion is that any more updates will be nothing more than security patches and maybe some minor bug fixes.

These updates do not add any new features, apart from the ability to rewind and pause live sports broadcasts in the Apple TV app and Chinese/Japanese support for HomePod. But there are several bug fixes and some security patches and performance improvements as well, so I recommend everyone install these updates as soon as you are able. This is about as refined as iOS 15 and macOS 12 are going to get, so I recommend nearly everyone consider upgrading to the latest software now if you have been putting it off.
