Apple has released security patches via the software update section for iPhones, iPads, Macs, and even Apple Watch. These updates are security patches, hence there are no new features added with these updates. But it is recommended for users to install these updates at the earliest.
With these new updates, the iPhones and iPads would be updated to iOS 14.4.1 and iPadOS 14.4.1 as well. Whereas Apple Watch would be updated to watchOS 7.3.2 and the Mac’s would be updated to macOS Big Sur 11.2.3. Apple has also bought new updates to Safari, for those with older versions of macOS which is version 14.0.3.
According to reports by Apple, these security patches fix the memory corruption bug which was being caused in WebKit (Safari browser’s engine). This was a very serious issue, as once exploited the attacker can run unsigned code on the Apple device that was affected.
These bugs were firstly reported by Google and Microsoft but were not believed to be actively exploited by hackers, unlike the recent security issues. It is recommended for Apple users to update their Apple devices, as soon as they get this new update and not avoid it as it fixes some serious security issues.
