Apple does not indicate other details but in the release notes for developers it highlights the solution of some vulnerabilities with CoreGraphics, WebKit and XNU and it is therefore good to update as soon as possible.

How to download the update to iOS 12.5.5

As always, you can install the update directly from your iPhone or iPad by going to Settings > General > Software update.

After requesting the update (tap on "Download and install"), it will be downloaded. The system prepares the update and, after a few minutes, it will be installed automatically.

Installing the update requires at least 50% battery or connection to a power source.

If the update doesn't appear immediately, don't worry: it doesn't appear to all users immediately and you may have to wait a little longer.

If you are unable to update wirelessly, you can use iTunes to get the latest iOS update from your Mac or PC with the device connected via USB
