More Control Over Live Sports is provided by Apple's Most Recent iOS and macOS Upgrades

Updates are available for watchOS, tvOS, and iPadOS as well.

Even though iOS 16, macOS Ventura, and other significant improvements are still many weeks away from release, current-generation software is getting one final hurrah. More control over live sports is now possible with the release of iOS 15.6, iPadOS 15.6, and macOS 12.5, all from the same firm. Existing matches can be restarted, and standard playback options like pausing, fast-forwarding, and rewinding are available. The updated program also resolves a Safari bug that could cause a tab to revert to a previous page. You should anticipate the usual set of security updates, including equivalents for earlier macOS releases like Big Sur and Catalina. The majority of these updates fix vulnerabilities allowing arbitrary code to run. Meanwhile, the equally recent watchOS 8.7 and tvOS 15.6 releases offer general "improvements" as well as bug and security fixes to Apple Watch and Apple TV customers. These could be the last substantial changes to the current program, according to the timetable. There are no signs of iOS 15.7 or other such updates in the horizon, despite the fact that Apple has regularly released major updates to iOS, macOS, and other software as early as September. The slight adjustments in these most recent revisions reflect the company's shifting objectives. The App Privacy Report is iOS 15.2's most significant new feature. The purpose of this report is to assist users in managing who has access to their data. The App Privacy Report is structured similarly to your weekly Screen Time reports, but instead of detailing how much time you spend using various applications, it displays the data and sensors that each app may access, network activities for those apps, and other privacy-related information. The iCloud Private Relay setting's language was also modified in the most recent beta. Limit IP Address Tracking is the option that is now available under Cellular and Wi-Fi settings. The revised phrasing should make it clearer what you can opt into, even if there hasn't been any functional change. Apple Music Voice Plan, a new subscription tier for Apple Music, was a surprising addition to iOS 15.2. The Voice Plan tier reduces the monthly fee in half, from $5 (£5, AU$6) to only $5 (£5, AU$6), although it can only be used by speaking to Siri and not manually using the Apple Music app. You won't have access to spatial audio or lyrics capabilities, but you will still be able to access the whole Apple Music library. You can see what you've just played thanks to a new feature called Play it Again, which prevents you from Googling the chorus of a song you just heard because you don't know its title.
