Update to stay secure!

Apple users are currently facing incredibly serious security risks, potentially allowing hackers to take control over entire devices! The attackers have been targeting the operating systems and focusing on Apple's web browser technology, Webkit- which powers safari, allowing them the same access to devices which Apple itself has.

The main devices being targeted are the iPhone 6S, and later models, newer iPads and Macs, including the following software and versions:

  • iPadOS prior to 15.6.1
  • iOS prior to 15.6.1
  • macOS Monterey 12 prior to 12.5.1

Recommended actions

Check your OS version and update if required. To do so, navigate the menu as follows:

  • On your iPhone or iPad: Settings > General > Software Update
  • On your Mac: Apple menu > About this Mac > Software Update
  • Ensure automatic updates are turned on

There have so far been no confirmed reports of specific cases where the security flaw has been used against people or devices. However, the cyber–security world is concerned and encourages users to act now to take control of their security.
