Apple has released iOS 15.7, iPadOS 15.7, and macOS Monterey 12.6 to all users, with important security fixes. macOS Big Sur 11.7 is also being rolled out today with similar fixes. The updates are available over the air for all compatible devices.
Instead of releasing any beta builds, Apple had straight away seeded the release candidate builds of iOS 15.7 and macOS Monterey 12.6 to developers last week. Unlike prior releases, these are minor updates with just security updates. Apple has confirmed this in release notes.
It is unclear what the security updates are, as of writing this article. The company usually posts details of security fixes on its Apple security updates support page, however, that only happens after software updates are made public.
