iOS 15.4.1 update – minor changes and security fixes

Apple has just released a minor update to iOS and iPadOS, following in the footsteps of the much bigger iOS 15.4 update earlier this month. Although there are no new features in this latest revision, Apple always includes bug fixes and security improvements in these updates so we reckon it’s worth installing.

Some users have complained of severe battery drain since the previous update, and although Apple hasn’t mentioned it specifically, we expect those problems to be addressed here. So if you’ve been running out of power a little too fast lately, this iOS 15.4.1 software update should do the trick.

And if you haven’t updated for a while, now’s your chance to get on board with the latest features added with iOS 15.4 – most notably the ability to use Face ID while wearing a mask (or glasses).

To update, open the Settings app and choose General > Software Update. If you have Automatic Updates enabled, you might find it’s already happened – but otherwise, follow the steps to install the update on your iPhone or iPad.
