You can stop wondering when iOS 15.4 is going to release, as it’s available today. That means you won’t have to wait any longer to get your hands on the feature-packed update.

This update gives you access to Face ID while wearing a mask, Universal Control, and if you’re a business, the ability to take contactless payments right from your iPhone.

That’s a lot of new features, and we’ve not even scratched the surface. You’ll get another 37 emojis, for all your messaging fun, new AirTag anti-stalking measures, and a new voice for Siri that’s closer to gender-neutral.
