iPhone users are being urged to update their devices after Apple released a security-focused update yesterday.

The US tech giant has reportedly found and fixed over 35 security flaws on iOS which could be putting users' private information, pics, and messages at risk.

The update, which is likely to be the last big software change before iOS 16 is released in September, is designed to protect users from new vulnerabilities.

The iOS 15.6 update is designed to stop remote code execution attacks, as well as exploits which could give hackers access to your iCloud photos.

As well as fixing security issues, the iOS 15.6 update also fixes minor bugs in the iPhone software including showing users their storage is full incorrectly, or a bug in Safari which sent users to the wrong tab.

To download the update for iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app on your device then tap General > Software Update.

Make sure your device is plugged in while you download and install it, and remember to back up any important work first.

September's iOS 16 update is set to be one of the biggest yet for the iPhone.

It adds fully customisable lock screens for the first time in the smartphone's history, enabling users to fully personalise their lock screens with new images, animations, fonts and colours.

You'll even be able to create multiple lock screens and activate these at different times of day, so that you can have different widgets and information depending on your routine.

It's due to be released in September 2022 but iPhone users can try out the features early by signing up to the iOS 16 beta.
