Apple is rolling out a new round of software updates for its mobile devices today. This update includes both iOS 15.4.1 and iPadOS 15.4.1 for all compatible iPhones and iPads. This is a small release with no new features, as the number incrementation clearly suggests.
It does, however, claim to increase something we’re sure is quite essential to the majority of people: battery life. That’s because the release notes state that installing this update will resolve the battery drain issues that were supposedly introduced with the release of iOS 15.4 just a few weeks ago.
Apple has published iOS 15.4.1 and iPadOS 15.4.1, which are minor updates to the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 operating systems, which were introduced in September. Two weeks after the release of iOS 15.4, Apple has released iOS 15.4.1 and iPadOS 15.4.1.
