iOS 15

Wesley Hilliard for AppleInsider:

Apple says that the release addresses a HomeKit denial of service issue, a problem where third-party CarPlay apps may lose touch sensitivity, and a bug where Messages may not load photos sent using an iCloud link.

The HomeKit DDoS attack was revealed by a researcher on January 1 and could be executed by entering a device name of over 500,000 characters. Devices that tried to load the device name could be placed into a reboot cycle and made unusable

MacDailyNews Take: On our test iPhones and iPads, both iOS 15.2.1 and iPadOS 15.2.1 seem snappy!

  1. I’ve had the most annoying Safari issue on my 12 Pro where the search field is completely whited out as I type, making whatever characters typed invisible. I have to force close safari which makes it work perfectly temporarily but within a few uses, issue comes back.
