  1. If you have an Apple product, today is the day to update it. The company has launched iOS 9.3.2, Mac OS X 10.11.5, watchOS 2.2.1, and tvOS 9.2.1, bringing a range of minor improvements and bug fixes.

    iOS 9.3.2 addresses quality issues with Bluetooth audio accessories paired to the iPhone SE. There are also bug fixes for dictionary look ups, email address entries when using the Japanese Kana keyboard, mobile device mangement servers, and Apple's VoiceOver accessibility feature.

    Don't expect to see anything more exciting in Mac OS X 10.11.5. This update fixes an issue with a Spotlight configuration profile that caused excess CPU consumption. This is a pretty minor issue that not many people would have run into, although it's still worth upgrading to 10.11.5 just so you can take advantage of the security patches Apple has implemented.

    Both watchOS 2.2.1 and tvOS 9.2.1 are focused on bug fixes and security updates, with tvOS also including some minor performance enhancements.

    If you found this list of operating system updates boring, at least Apple did make some interesting changes to the latest version of iTunes. Available today, version 12.4 includes an updated interface that makes it easier to navigate through the software, including the return of the left-side navigation bar.

    It's not a major overhaul of iTunes, which some users suggest is badly needed, but it does address some issues with the interface.
