Apple has released iOS 15.2, iPadOS 15.2, macOS Monterey 12.1, watchOS 8.3, tvOS 15.2, and HomePod Software Version 15.2 for devices that are compatible with the latest software releases.
Users will benefit from Apple Music Voice Plan support, which enables them to access Apple Music using Siri, a feature shared by all of these new releases.
The most recent iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS releases also contain an App Privacy Report, which allows users to examine the information that third-party and Apple-developed apps have access to about them.
Apple has introduced SharePlay to the Mac operating system with macOS Monterey 12.1. Over FaceTime chats, you may now share material from the Apple TV app, iTunes, Apple Music, and other approved applications.
The new macOS Monterey version also includes an improved Photos app, which has a revamped Memories carousel with a new interactive interface, animations, transition styles, and several picture collages, all of which are included in the free upgrade.
There are also new memories such as more overseas vacations, memories centered on children, patterns over time, and enhanced pet memories.
App Privacy Report and Apple Music Voice Plan are among the new features in watchOS 8.3 for Apple Watch users. Data and sensor access may be recorded and viewed on your linked iPhone with the aid of the latter. When alerts interrupt Mindfulness sessions for specific users, the watchOS update addresses the problem.

Furthermore, the app has included updating Listening History settings for Music and Podcasts on a per-user and per-device basis for Music and Podcasts.
