To download the update, go to Settings > General > Software Updatepressure install now and follow the instructions on the screen.
Apple’s update fixes an issue that causes some iPhone 15 features, such as Apple Pay, to not work after wireless charging in some vehicles. The update also fixes an issue that causes the Weather lock screen widget to not display the snow symbol correctly.
While some iPhone users said on X, formerly Twitter, that the update appeared to be draining their device’s battery, and it was the subject of a discussion on Reddit, it’s not clear if it’s a widespread problem. CNET has reached out to Apple for comment. However, Apple has previously said this is not unusual, and it can take up to 48 hours for your iPhone’s apps and features to adjust to a new update.

In rare cases, Apple Pay and other NFC features may become unavailable on iPhone 15 models after wireless charging in certain cars.
