    Apple released security updates for iPad and iPhone (13.5.1), the Apple Watch (6.2.6), the HomePod (13.4.6) and tvOS (13.4.6).

    There’s also a supplemental update for macOS Catalina, and a security update for High Sierra.

    Boy, Apple is really getting irritating w/ these updates constantly! :mad:

    Just did my 2 iDevices (Susan's 2 to go) - the DL is small and quick and the whole process done in a short time - again, back up your devices before applying the update. Dave :)

    Quite agree. Still a security update can only be important to us all.

    BTW, usually I can get a good idea (I think) of an imminent update as there is a burst of app updates, which I see as I check the updates manually each morning.

    Well even more Apple annoyance! Wife got an alert on her iMac about a 10.15.5 Supplemental update (not even worth a secondary number change) - so just finished updating her computer plus my two laptops - kind of annoying when the macOS version doesn't even change! :rolleyes: :cool:

    ADDENDUM: more from MacRumors HERE - mainly a security issue and a recommended update.

    Coming from Android devices, I wouldn’t consider Apple’s updates an annoyance, especially when it’s a security update. You get the update at the same time everywhere, immediately.

    I still remember how it worked with my SGS 3:
    In case Google released an Android update, you had to wait. If you were lucky, the update would get to Europe a few weeks after its official release date. Not every country got the update at the same time. Usually, Austria came quite late, after Poland, if memory serves right. You then had to wait for Samsung and your carrier to push the update to your device. That means an update could take from six weeks to 2 or 3 months here in Austria to get to your Android phone, if your device was eligible. My last Android stopped receiving updates after 2 years.

    Yup.

    Or, put another way: Yes, they are kind of annoying. (Particularly WatchOS updates, which, on my Series 1, Gen. 2, take forever and a day.) But I'll gladly suffer the annoyance, compared to using an OS which, on many devices, sees updates only erratically--or not at all.
