To get your hands on iOS 16.5.1 and iPadOS 16.5.1, simply head to your device’s Settings, tap on General, and select Software Update. However, do note that it might take a while for the updates to reach all users due to the high demand.

While no specific vulnerabilities were mentioned, it is reassuring to see Apple’s commitment to keeping its operating systems secure.
In addition to security improvements, iOS 16.5.1 and iPadOS 16.5.1 also tackle a particular bug that has been causing trouble for users. Specifically, this update resolves an issue related to charging when using the Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter.
