Apple today released iOS 15.4.1 and iPadOS 15.4.1, minor updates to the iOS and iPadOS 15 operating systems released in September. iOS 15.4.1 and iPadOS 15.4.1 come two weeks after the release of iOS 15.4.


iOS 15.4.1 and iPadOS 15.4.1 updates can be downloaded for free and the software is available on all eligible devices over the air in the Settings app. To access the new software, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

According to Apple’s release notes, the update fixes an issue that could cause the battery to drain faster than expected after updating to iOS 15.4. It also includes repairs for hearing devices designed for iPhone and Braille devices.

This update includes the following bug fixes for your iPhone:
Battery may drain faster than expected after updating to iOS 15.4
Braille devices may become unresponsive while navigating text or displaying an alert
Hearing devices designed for iPhone may lose connection with some third-party apps

iOS and iPadOS 15.4.1 fixes an issue with AppleAVD that could allow an app to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. Apple says this exploit may have been actively exploited, so it’s a good idea for all users to update as soon as possible.

Apple has also released the new tvOS 15.4.1, HomePod 15.4.1, and watchOS 8.5.1 updates to go along with the iOS 15.4.1 update.
