It is the annual big firmware release that’s why it carries so much importance for the company. Though the company has become adept at releasing stable big OS updates compared to early years of iOS, but one can never rule out the chances of occasional bugs and errors from surface every now and then.

Like most iOS updates, Apple never forgets to issue an accompanying release note mentioning what’s new in that particular build.

We are keeping out fingers crossed that this update would bring an end to the annoying battery drain, device lag, and stuttering issues from previous version.
