Tech News Summary:

  • iOS 16.3.1 included a major security patch for a widely abused WebKit vulnerability as well as patches for macOS Ventura, iPadOS, and Safari for Monterey and Big Sur.
  • iOS 15.7.3 and iPadOS 15.7.3 have been released after more than a month, containing 16 security patches with the most significant one being the WebKit patch from the previous month.
  • iOS 16.4 and iPadOS 16.4 include security fixes for Calendar, Locate My, and Shortcuts, and iOS 15.7.3 may be the final version before the release of iOS 17 in the fall.

After multiple reports of the WebKit bug being actively exploited on older iPhones, Apple has finally released a fix for the vulnerability.

The WebKit bug allowed attackers to remotely hack into iPhones using malicious code. It affected iPhones running versions of iOS as old as 9.3.5, which included iPhone 5, 6, 6S, and SE models.

The fix, which was released as part of the iOS 12.4.9 update, patches the vulnerability and protects older iPhones from being exploited via the WebKit bug. The update is now available for download on supported devices.

Apple has urged all iPhone users to update their devices to the latest iOS version as soon as possible to ensure their devices are protected.

The WebKit bug has been a major concern for iPhone users over the past few months. With reports of active exploitation on older devices, the release of the fix comes as good news for those still using older iPhone models.

Apple continues to prioritize the security of its users, and with the timely release of this fix, has shown its commitment to keeping its devices secure from threats.
