Mac OS Sierra 10.12.1, watchOS 3.1 and tvOS 10.0.1 are mostly about fixing little issues -- but they also bring a couple new features.

If you've got a recent piece of Apple hardware, it may be time to update -- the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch, Apple TV and the Mac all got minor software releases this morning.

For the most part, it's just bugfixes, but the iPhone 7 Plus gets the nifty new Portrait Mode for its camera, which allows you to capture images with some buttery background blur -- and on Mac, the new MacOS Sierra 10.2.1 will automatically filter those photos into a special smart album for later viewing.

WatchOS 3.1 should let you replay the cool effects in the Messages app on your Apple Watch, in addition to squashing some bugs.

Here's the full changelog for each update:

macOS Sierra 10.12.1

  • Adds an automatic smart album in Photos for Depth Effect images taken on iPhone 7 Plus

  • Fixes an issue that may prevent Mail from updating when using a Microsoft Exchange account
  • Fixes an issue that caused text to sometimes paste incorrectly when using Universal Clipboard
  • Improves reliability of Auto Unlock with Apple Watch
  • Improves security and stability in Safari

watchOS 3.1

  • New option to replay bubble and full screen effects in Messages
