Apple iOS, macOS, watchOS, iPadOS updates

Apple released four new updates across its entire product lineup, namely to iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and watchOS. The updates include important security patches and contain fixes to a few existing bugs.

Last year, Apple released the new iOS version just two weeks before the official release of iOS 14 started rolling out to the public. It’s very likely that these new releases prepare the operating systems for the new iOS 15 updates, which may come as soon as in two weeks’ time. Don’t forget, Apple will hold its “California streaming” Event today, where the company is expected to finally unveil the brand new iPhone 13 Series, the Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch, and the AirPods 3.
