iOS 9 is getting one final update before iOS 10 makes its big debut this fall. Apple just rolled out iOS 9.3.4, which is an “important security update” that’s recommended for all iPhone and iPad users with compatible devices.

This release, which weighs in at just 25.1MB if your device is up to date, comes just two weeks after Apple made iOS 9.3.3 available to all. Apple isn’t specific about what exactly the update does, but it’s focused on security, so you’ll want to grab it as soon as you can.

You will only see the update on iPhone and iPad (not iPod touch), and you’ll be able to download it over-the-air. Because it’s so small, you probably won’t even need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network to grab it — but you will still need at least 50% battery to install it.
