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.

My wife installed it on her ipad mini 5 with no problem, but it downloads on her iphone 12 pro max and doesn't install? Can i wipe it out of her phone and try it again?

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.

So do you think I should download it now or wait until iOS 15

You can download the update over the air without being connected to the Mac.
