On your iPhone, iOS 15.3 appears to be mostly unchanged

MacRumors analytics have shown an increase in devices on iOS 15.3, with the uptick happening around the beginning of the month. Likewise, those same analytics show a stable and consistent pattern of visits from devices running iOS and iPadOS 15.4. The latter could be a more significant update, with more front-end users changes than what iOS 15.3 is seemingly poised to be.

The first beta of the impending iOS and iPadOS 15.3 update has leaked, suggesting that the next major iPhone and iPad update will most likely focus on bug fixes, speed improvements, and security enhancements, rather than larger additions slated for software releases in the spring. The iOS 15.3 beta copy received by MacRumors has just a few noticeable changes, such as updated phrasing for the recently announced Child Safety features, minor improvements to the Podcasts app, and revised text about the automatic download of magazines in Apple News+ for offline reading. While this is likely simply the first of multiple betas, it does suggest that the upcoming upgrade will be less significant than some may have hoped.
