After multiple vulnerabilities were uncovered in iPhones and iPads, Apple quickly released a security update to fix the issues and keep your devices safe.
Though keeping our gadgets up to date is a seemingly never-ending task, it is important to stay protected against vulnerabilities that are potentially being actively exploited, like the recent ones discovered in the software powering iPhones and iPads. The vulnerabilities had two distinct effects: the first may have allowed a “malicious application” to “elevate privileges”, and the second might have allowed a hacker to “cause arbitrary code execution” from afar. Either way, these security holes left room for bad outcomes if compromised.
If you have an iPhone 6s or later, iPad Air 2 or later, an iPad mini 4 or later, or a 7th generation iPod touch, now is the time to update to iOS 14.4. To learn more details, visit here.
