Apple this week released back-to-back updates for iOS and Safari, both numbered 15.6.1. The iOS update was released on Wednesday and the Safari update was released on Thursday, and both fix security vulnerabilities. Apple wrote that it is aware that these vulnerabilities may have been exploited, so people should update their iOS and Safari as soon as they can.

The iOS update is recommended for all users, according to Apple. It fixes two vulnerabilities that iPhone and iPad users may encounter. One vulnerability could have allowed an application to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges, and the second vulnerability was in WebKit, the engine that powers Safari and other third-party browsers on iOS. The WebKit vulnerability can also lead to arbitrary code execution by malicious content.

Here’s how to download the iOS 15.6.1 update.

1. Open Settings.

2. Faucet General.

3. Faucet Software update.

4. You will be prompted to download and install 15.6.1. If you have already downloaded version 15.6.1, your phone should indicate that it is up to date.

If you see an error message while trying to download the update, don’t worry. Since the update is new and recommended for everyone, others are likely trying to download it along with it. Keep trying to download and install again, and soon the update will be done.

The Safari update also fixes a vulnerability in WebKit, but in some older operating systems. This update is intended to fix a vulnerability that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code on Mac OS Big Sur and Mac OS Catalina.

Here’s how to download the Safari 15.6.1 update.
