As expected, this update is released mainly to fix some bugs users have been experiencing. Some of these include issues connecting to some Bluetooth accessories and crashing when turning on the iCloud Photo library. Besides these, the update also introduces the ability to replay special effects in the Messages app, performance improvements and ability to compare transit fare when using Apple Maps.

- Tap on “Download and Install” and the update will start downloading.
- After downloading, the OS will be installed, you may also tap on “Install Now” if you have already downloaded the update.
- Your iPhone will be restarted when the update has been installed.
