IOS 15.5 is available on iPhone and iPad: what will you find there?

Apple has already started rolling out the new update to iOS 15.5. It doesn’t bring anything revolutionary, but some nice improvements, including the possibility (more or less obscure) for developers to use external links in some apps that could lead to paying for except in the App Store. .

The automation bug of departures and arrivals of people, by iPhone location, will be better addressed in this new update. This will prevent automations from being disabled in some situations from failing.

Plus, you can now be notified of critical alert rates in your home. Connected objects (smoke detector inactive or alert, critical noise, etc.) can then send you an audible notification to warn you, even in Do Not Disturb mode.

external links

According to AppleInsider, among the “other fixes” offered by Apple, the Reader apps (books, newspapers, audio streaming, video streaming) can now support external links of all kinds. So this means that Netflix, Spotify and many more can direct users to pay outside of the App Store.

The approach of the WWDC developer conference on June 6 likely explains this small update, with not many improvements expected. This is likely for iOS 15.6 version or simply iOS 15.5.1.
