IPad mini Reportedly Being Phased Out

Posted May 17, 2017

I think most people who own an Apple TV have their settings set for automatic updating, but if not, this one provides bug fixes and other enhancements to the 4th-generation Apple TV. It can be installed on your device over-the-air or you can also connect your device to a Mac or PC to get the update using iTunes.

And it's worth updating as soon as possible since, as Apple points out on its website, "keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product's security".

Just like the intervening iOS 10.3.1 update, the roll out notes for 10.3.2 only say that it "includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad", which claims that the release is more focused on security updates. The last update the iPad Mini line received was back in September 2015 with the introduction of the iPad Mini 4, and even then, it was announced without much fanfare as a footnote to a larger iPad Pro presentation. While it doesn't add any major new functionality, as iOS 10.3 did with its Find My AirPods feature, it does offer a number of critical fixes created to make your iPhone run better. The iOS update fixes 41 security flaws, including some that could potentially allow a remote attacker to execute malicious code on an Apple mobile device.

To install the updates, click the Apple logo in the menu bar, select App Store, click Updates and then click Install next to the OS and Safari updates.
