    My iPhone 12 pro max and iPad Pro both show IOS/iPadOS are available but I can't download the updates while connected to my iMac. Has anyone else been able to download the updates? Also From past experience I would guess iOS/iPadOS 15.0 should be coming out pretty soon so I may wait until 15 comes out.

    We're pretty much days away from the official release of iOS 15 so you might as well hold off, in my opinion.

    Well I was able to download it just now. I told my grand-daughters to wait for IOS15 which may be out next week.
    Thanks for the advice though.

    iOS 14.8 patches two zero-day flaws, perhaps waiting a week or two isn’t the best idea.

    It's a security update, so I'm in the process of downloading/installing it now.

    I have updated my phone plus my MacBook and Apple Watch because apparently apple had some software breach which they prompted everyone to update all their devices so I did just to be on the safe side

    I just want to put some clarity here, because it could be misinterpreted - which we don't want

    Breaches and vulnerabilities are two very distinct things.

    It's a software vulnerability that was corrected, an error in the software code.
    The vulnerability was used to access some people's Apple devices - but not through Apple's servers. Instead the present vulnerability was in the way the devices interpreted PDF and Web documents.

    A breach would involve that some organization's networks and/or systems were accessed by unauthorized entities. That's not the case here.
