Apple has released a couple of updates it recommends all iPhone, iPad and Mac users at the earliest opportunity download. No, 14 iOS.5 and Big Sur 11.3 aren’t out yet. Instead, what we’ve are 14 .2.3 .
Once you download them on your own devices, all you’ll get is really a terse explanation from Apple saying that they’re “important.” However, the support pages spotted by 9to5Mac provide more info. Both updates address a memory corruption issue within WebKit, the engine that powers Apple’s Safari browser. The vulnerability, that was discovered by security researchers from Microsoft and Google, could have allowed bad actors to execute code on your own devices using “maliciously crafted” content.
On iOS, it is possible to manually download an update to your iPad or iPhone by opening the Settings app, and tapping “General” accompanied by “Software Update then.” Meanwhile, on macOS, open the operational system Preferences menu and select “Software Update.”
