The same support document adds that iOS 15.3 fixes these CVEs for the iPhone 6s and later. By contrast, iPadOS 15.3 resolves the same issues for all iPad Pro models, along with the iPad Air 2, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 4 and the iPod Touch (7th Gen) or later. Both updates are rolling out now as over-the-air (OTA) downloads globally and can be triggered by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.
Apple has begun distributing iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 to a variety of devices. There are no new features or changes in the two OS updates, which repair at least ten security problems. In terms of substance, iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 are also significant improvements. Two weeks after releasing versions 15.2.1 for both operating systems, Apple has published new security-focused updates for iOS and iPadOS. While the two changelogs merely state that iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 contain “bug fixes and security upgrades,” a support document states that iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 correct the following security problems.
For reference, iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 are rather large downloads. Download sizes vary too, with the iPhone 13 mini receiving a 1.06 GB update, compared to the sub-1 GB download for its predecessor. Additionally, iPadOS 15.3 is a circa 800 MB download for the iPad Pro 11 (2020). Unfortunately, neither OS update, the third major revision for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, contain any feature updates or changes.
