The iOS 15.6 and iPadOS 15.6 updates are free to download and are available over-the-air on all compatible devices via the Settings app. Navigate to Settings > General > Software Update to access the updated programme.

iOS 15.6 is a little update that includes a few new features and bug fixes as Apple completes work on iOS 15 and the iPadOS 15 operating systems.

The update fixes a bug that might allow the Settings app to falsely indicate that the device’s storage is full even when it isn’t, and it adds the ability to resume, pause, rewind, and fast-forward a live sports game that is currently playing.
