iOS 17.5 is here: what's new and how to update your iPhone, iPad and Watch

We have an important update available for all users in the Manzanero environment. This is edition 17.5 of iOS, now available to everyone who owns a iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch. If you want to know what's new and how to proceed with the update (although the procedure has no mystery, we warn you), you are in the right place.

iOS 17.5 and its news

In case you are interested in knowing what is new in this version before installing it, these are its main new features:

  • New widget for the Apple Podcast app: We already had the widget for the Apple Podcast app for a long time, but now it has received a small facelift, with a design change that adapts the background color to that of the cover of the program in question
  • Mass blocking of FaceTime participants: This type of spam has not yet arrived here but it seems that in the USA mass calls through Apple's video calling app are popular. To combat this, it is now possible to suddenly block all participants with a single gesture.
  • Downloads via web: the apple firm now allows distribution of apps from alternative stores to the App Store via the web.
  • Bug fixes and security patches: As with any update worth its salt, this new package brings improvements in system performance as well as various adjustments to address various vulnerabilities.

In addition to these new features in terms of features, this update brings special wallpapers to celebrate Pride month that will be celebrated in June. There are also new faces for the Apple Watch, so you can decorate your iPhone, iPad and watch with the design proposal that this year will draw the name Pride on the screen.

How to update to iOS 17.5

The procedure to download the update on your iPhone or iPad (in this case iPadOS 17.5) is the usual one, in case you don't have it configured automatically (in which step, you will receive a notice that the package will proceed to install at night, as long as you have enough battery):

  1. Go to the Settings of the telephone
  2. Access General
  3. Inside, tap on the second option called Software Update
  4. A notice will appear that a new version is available
  5. Accept and proceed with the installation

As for the Watch, the steps are very similar to enjoy Watch 10.5:

  1. Enter the Watch app
  2. In the My Watch section, tap on General
  3. Search for Software Update
  4. The new version will appear available for download and installation.

Enjoy it.
