New issues spotted in this release are listed below:

  • Battery drain issue has been reported by Dejan “iOS 15.6 extreme battery drain.
    With normal use for 4 hours, 30% less battery.”

    Important: iPhone will reindex data after an iOS update. Accentuated battery drain for the first 24 hours after the update isn’t uncommon. If this issue continues after a couple of days, a battery draining issue can be invoked.

    Tip: If you also feel that iOS 15.6 is draining iPhone battery faster than iOS 15.5, please report it in the comments. Also, check out the troubleshooting options provided here.

iOS 15.6 Should I Update

This is probably Apple’s latest update to iOS 15, as we’re only weeks away from the public release of iOS 16, which is currently beta tested.

If you’re ok with iOS 15.5 I would wait a couple more days to see if any new issues are reported!

The undisputed benefits are the security updates included in iOS 15.6, as well as the above mentioned improvements and bug fixes. However, we’re still waiting to see if there are any hidden bugs included too.

Is iOS 15.5 Still Signed?

Yes, at the time of writing iOS 15.5 is still signed, this means that you can downgrade to this previous version if you’re not satisfied by iOS 15.6.

However, be aware that Apple might stop signing iOS 15.5 anytime now, which will make a downgrade impossible.
