Apple releases iOS 9.3.2, OS X 10.11.5, watchOS 2.2.1, and tvOS 9.2.1 for all to enjoy [Update]

After a seemingly endless beta cycle, Apple has finally released iOS 9.3.2, OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan, watchOS 2.2.1, and tvOS 9.2.1 to all supported devices.

As the version numbers indicate, there isn't any notable front-facing features in these updates. Instead, they focus on bug fixes and performance improvements.

Here are the release notes from iOS 9.3.2:

iOS 9.3.2 fixes bugs and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad. This update:

  • Fixes an issue where some Bluetooth accessories could experience audio quality issues when paired to the iPhone SE
  • Fixes an issue where looking up dictionary definitions could fail
  • Addresses an issue that prevented typing email addresses when using the Japanese Kana keyboard in Mail and Messages
  • Fixes an issue for VoiceOver users using the Alex voice, where the device switches to a different voice to announce punctuation or spaces
  • Fixes an issue that prevented MDM servers from installing Custom B2B apps

Here's what's new in OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan:

  • Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set allowSpotlightInternetResults to Falsewould cause Spotlight to use large amounts of CPU time.

  • Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set ShutDownDisabledWhileLoggedIn to Truewould have no effect.

  • Fixes an issue where only a single NetBoot image would appear in the Startup Disk pane of System Preferences, even if multiple NetBoot images were configured on the server.

watchOS 2.2.1 seems to be an interesting case. We're using an Apple Watch that is running watchOS 2.2.1 beta 2 - which was released back on April 20 - and it's not showing an update. In fact, if you click on the watchOS 2.2.1 release notes in the Apple Developer Center, it actually brings you to the notes for beta 2.

There are a few possibilities as to what happened here. The update might just not be live yet, which seems unlikely, as it was listed as published almost an hour ago (and others seem to be getting it), or Apple ended up choosing beta 2 as the GM seed, which seems likely, as while iOS, OS X, and tvOS all saw third and fourth betas, watchOS did not.

There is a long list of security content for watchOS 2.2.1. If you're interested, head over to Apple Support and check it out.

tvOS 9.2.1 also has a list of security content that you can find right here.

Still in beta is OS X Server v5.1.5, which saw its fourth iteration on April 29.

Update: OS X Server 5.1.5 has now been released.
