iOS 15.7.3 Features & Release Date


If you own an older version of the iPhone that isn’t compatible with the latest iOS 16 and above, Apple has got your back with their latest updates. Recently, Apple released their new iOS 15.7.3 update to address the security concerns and bug fixes in some of their older iPhone models.

Besides the new iOS update, Apple has also released iPadOS 15.7.3 and iOS 12.5.7 updates for the relevant and older iPhone and iPad models. Although Apple clarified that they weren’t planning on releasing new iOS updates for the older models, they have made an exception this time around since the security issue was quite serious, to begin with.

This article will explore everything you need to know about the iOS 15.7.3 update.

What do the Users get?

When you go to download the new iOS 15.7.3 update, the message is very clear, “This update provides important security updates and is recommended for all users.”

Further reports suggest that this new update addresses five top security fixes, including kernel, mail, maps, and screen time apps.

Irrespective of what device you use, you can’t beat the fact that Apple is consistent in prioritizing customer satisfaction and online safety, even when it’s for devices that are decades old.

The primary intent of this update is to enhance the security of the device so there are no risks implied. Independently, the OS is quite mature and you won’t have to worry much about the said aspect of usability.

Should I update to the latest iOS 15.7.3?

If Apple has provided users with an impromptu iOS update, you know for a fact that it’s to address a serious security threat. So, if your device received the update and you have the storage, we’d recommend that you go ahead and download the said iOS update without fail.

However, some of the users who have installed the new update reported experiencing issues with abnormal battery drainage, wifi issues, Bluetooth connectivity issues, touch ID issues, etc. Some of the users are also reporting experiencing problems with third-party apps.

Despite some of these occasional drawbacks, we’d still recommend that you go ahead and download the latest iOS 15.7.3 update.

If you are expecting Apple to add new features with this new iOS update, you will be disappointed since the primary objective of this update is to improve the security of the device.


At present, that’s all the information we have surrounding the release of the latest iOS 15.7.3 update. Apple hasn’t disclosed any elaborate reasoning as to why they suddenly released these new updates, even the iOS 12.5.7 which is for iPhones that are decade old and beyond Apple’s update range.
