You may have already seen that little '1' appear on your Settings app on your iPad or iPhone - indicating to you that there is an Apple iOS update, ready and waiting for you to download and install.
Perhaps you have seen that message appear on your Mac, advising of an available update to your Mac.
What's changed on the iPad and iPhone, and is it safe to update?
Here is a 'screenshot' of the updates listed for the latest iOS update for our iPads and iPhones, iOS 9.3.2.
I have not seen issues reported for the majority of devices. However, problems have definitely been reported for the new iPad Pro 9.7in, with some users reporting that their devices have been 'bricked' by the update, rendering them un-usable. Hopefully this hasn't impacted any iTandCoffee clients.
Apple has overnight 'pulled' the update for these devices (so you shouldn't see any update available to you at the moment on these devices).
I have already updated to iOS 9.3.2 on my own devices, and not encountered any issues.
So, unless you have a new iPad Pro, go ahead with your update - by going to Settings -> General -> Software Update, and choosing Download and Install or Install (depending on which you see there).
What has changed on the Mac, and is it safe to update?
I have to confess that I haven't yet updated my Macs to OS X 10.11.5. I will do so during next week and will report next time on my findings.
I have not seen any major issues reported online in the last few days since this was update released. I'll leave it with readers to decide if they want to 'take the plunge'.
Major potential issue with using the new iTunes version, 12.4
There have been reports that a bug in this new version of iTunes has caused some users' entire iTunes libraries to be wiped. Here is an article about this.
If it does impact you, here's hoping you have a backup! Apple is busily working on a fix for this problem, so hopefully we will see this soon. Little consolation for those who have lost their library and don't have a backup.
What's on at iTandCoffee ?
