Apple releases iOS 15.3…but there aren’t any new features

The news: Apple just dropped their first major software update of the year…but the release is a big update in version number only.

  • The only notable change in iOS 15.3 is a fix for bug in Safari where your browsing history and Google ID could be incidentally leaked to websites you visited
  • The bug was first noted by FingerprintJS who made a website to raise awareness about the now-patched issue

Our take: Anyone else find it strange that Apple dedicated what is usually a major 15.x release to primarily fixing one thing? Perhaps other features that were planned got pushed back for Apple to rush this out the door? Regardless of the reason (which we’ll probably never know), you should update your devices as soon as you can.
