3. Podcasts Update:

This app now gives the setting from which you can limit the number of episodes stored and will automatically delete older or already watched episodes so that it does not take too much storage.

4. Access to External Link in Reader Apps:

Update 15.5 now gives access to external links to reader apps like Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, and other apps that can now link to external websites for account creation and subscription management, which means it will allow the apps to sign-up for an account outside of the App Store in-app purchase system.

5. Community Safety:

The Community Safety feature in Messages is specially designed for Children, on children’s devices, it scans incoming and outgoing iMessage images.

So if children’s devices receive an inappropriate image, it will warn them that such photos might be harmful and will be blurred. And if an inappropriate photo is detected in a message sent by a child, it will give them a warning not to send the image.
