Apple patched the critical flaw in the iPhone operating system


Apple just released iOS 14.4.2, watchOS 7.3.3, and iOS 12.5.2 to fix critical vulnerabilities on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

Apple says these updates patch a critical vulnerability in WebKit that hackers may be exploiting. IOS 12.5.2 is for iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPad mini 3, original iPad Air, and iPod touch 6.

The vulnerability in WebKit allows malicious websites to send and insert malicious scripts into web application source code. Apple has received reports of the vulnerability being exploited in real life.

The patch comes at a time when the “missing apple” is completing the final stages to release iOS 14.5. iOS 14.5 is a major update, including many improvements, most notably the ability to unlock the iPhone using Apple Watch when users wear a mask, reducing inconvenience with Face ID. It also introduces App Tracking Transparency, which requires apps to ask for user permission before sharing identifying information with third parties.

To download the aforementioned patch, you go to Settings> General> Software Update.
