      SB: “2 zero-days in macOS Monterey 12.5.1

      Does that mean “two zero-day fixes”?
      Or that there are two zero-days out to get the newly released Monterey 15.5.1? According to Apple, 15.5.1 fixes two nasty bugs, but it does not describe them as “zero-days.” (Does Apple ever do that?)

      Ex-Windows user (Win. 98, XP, 7); since mid-2017 using also macOS. Presently on Monterey 12.15 & sometimes running also Linux (Mint).

      MacBook Pro circa mid-2015, 15" display, with 16GB 1600 GHz DDR3 RAM, 1 TB SSD, a Haswell architecture Intel CPU with 4 Cores and 8 Threads model i7-4870HQ @ 2.50GHz.
      Intel Iris Pro GPU with Built-in Bus, VRAM 1.5 GB, Display 2880 x 1800 Retina, 24-Bit color.
      macOS Monterey; browsers: Waterfox "Current", Vivaldi and (now and then) Chrome; security apps. Intego AV

      Yes. Read the update post.

        Ales, I already saw that and it does not help clarify this, as I have explained, also already, in my previous comment: “According to Apple, 15.5.1 fixes two nasty bugs, but it does not describe them as “zero-days.” (Does Apple ever do that?)

      There is also an update for watchOS 8.7.1.
      I haven’t seen the security content, if there is any.
      AKB2000014 has been updated.

        There is also an update for watchOS 8.7.1.

        Thanks. I was wondering if there was one for the watch.

        I’m getting the one for my iPhone now.

        This site is the first stop for me each day when I get on my computer.

        Hmmmm….my updated iPhone claims there is NO watch update! It says watch OS 8.7 is the latest. Odd.

        • #2470990

          the Watch update has no security content, so it may not be immediately pushed like the ipad/ios.

            watchOS 8.7.1 fixes a bug that could cause the Apple Watch Series 3 to reboot unexpectedly for some users.

        • #2471062

          There are always articles linked in the main Topic of AKB2000014 about the updates, as well as the security content (or not) and the “what’s new” docs from Apple for the patchs.

      watchOS 8.7.1

      NOW (after searching for it off and on most of the day) I find that the update is ONLY for Series 3 of Apple Watch…DUH. I have Series 5.

      • #2471006

        If you checked for updates for your watch and didn’t get it, you don’t need it.

    • #2471041

      Installed macOS 12.5.1 on a 13-inch MacBook Pro, 2020, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports; and iOS 15.6.1 on an iPhone XR. No major issues to report so far. I usually install these updates with more urgency than regular updates due to the fact that the vulnerabilities discovered are being actively exploited. However, if you’re more comfortable with waiting a few days before installing, that is fine as well.
