Apple has released updates for all four of its in-house platforms. The new versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS are focused on bug fixes and security updates. New features are not included.
MacOS Sierra 10.12.5 and iTunes 12.6.1
Apple in the update description to macOS Sierra 10.12.5 first speaks generally of improved security, stability and compatibility for Macs. The Group specifically names three optimizations. The update to version 10.12.5 fixes a problem, which could lead to a halting audio playback with headphones connected via USB. Apple also optimizes the compatibility of the Mac App Store with future software updates. There are no further indications as to whether the Group undertakes major reconstruction work on the store. A list of the included security updates can be found on the Group’s support website.
For users who want to use Windows as their operating system on their Apple computer, the macOS update offers a new option. The installation of the Windows 10 Creators Update without Media with Boot Camp is now supported.
In addition to the operating system update, there is also an iTunes update. Apple calls “minor improvements to the app and performance,” without going into detail.
IOS 10.3.2 solves SiriKit and VPN problems
IOS 10.3.2 also focuses on fault corrections and security updates. Unlike with macOS, Apple does not have specific points to the update. During the Betatest phase, a bug was fixed in SiriKit, which could occur in older versions during use in the car. Likewise, the interplay of VPN tools and iOS should work better again.
WatchOS 3.2.2 and tvOS 10.2.1
Neither the update for Apple’s Smartwatch operating system nor the update for the in-house TV platform offer new features. WatchOS 3.2.2 and tvOS 10.2.1 optimize existing functions and bring the respective system to the current safety level.
