Apple updates iOS, iPadOS to fix WebKit security hack flaws

Apple has released an iOS update to address a number of security vulnerabilities that may have already been exploited by hackers to target iPhone users.

The security update for iOS and iPadOS fixes two holes in the WebKit engine that powers Safari and other browsers, as well as another kernel-level flaw that could affect the entire operating system.

Like most companies, Apple doesn’t talk about security issues until they have been investigated and hopefully fixed to avoid making the vulnerabilities public to hackers, but now that an update is available, your options are to update or risk being targeted by cybercriminals who know the flaws now.

The security flaw comes a few days after Apple began warning customers who bought an iPhone 12 not to get it too close to implanted medical devices such as pacemakers.
