Looks like today is Apple Patch Monday. Cupertino has released a bevy of fixes for its two main operating systems, bringing iOS to version 9.3.2 and OS X El Capitan to version 10.11.5. At first glance, neither update brings much in the way of user-visible changes, but there are still a few interesting points to look at.
Let's start off with the mobile bits. The iOS 9.3.2 update fixes multiple small issues, including problems with Bluetooth accessory pairing on the iPhone SE, dictionary lookups, and minor issues with the Japanese Kana keyboard and the VoiceOver feature. Along with these fixes for more common features, Apple also sorted out a problem with Mobile Device Management servers not being able to install custom business-to-business apps on devices.
The OS X v10.11.5 update takes a slightly different tack, plugging a large number of security holes. Roughly 40 system packages received patches, ranging from the audio portion of OS X to the Intel graphics drivers. Perhaps more notably, there's fixes for a couple of kernel security issues which could allow for arbitrary code execution, potentially letting a malicious application have its way within the system. Apple also fixed three issues with enterprise-related features, namely a problem with NetBoot images not showing up in the Startup Disk pane. Check the Mac App Store on your OS X device or the Software Update tool in Settings on iOS to get these updates now.
