On Wednesday, Apple released two reports on serious security vulnerabilities for iPhones, iPads and Macs that could potentially allow potential attackers to take complete control of these devices.
Apple detailed that the vulnerability means the risk of someone gaining “full admin access” to a device in which it would allow the hacker to impersonate the device’s owner and subsequently run any software in their name.
Experts have advised users to update the affected devices, which are the iPhone6S and later models; several models of the iPad, including the 5th generation and later, all iPad Pro models and the iPad Air 2; and Mac computers running MacOS Monterey. The flaw could also affect some iPod models.
How To Fix The Issue:
-Apple added two software updates on Wednesday to fix the issue. They recommend users updating their devices to fix the flaw and secure their devices.
-To update software on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch—either iOS 15.6.1 or iPadOS 15.6.1—go into “Settings,” tap “General,” then “Software Update” and “Download and Install.” To update a Mac running macOS Monterey, go to “System Preferences,” then “Software Update” and hit “Update Now” or “Upgrade Now.”
