Security flaws in the software on your iPhone may have already been exploited by hackers and you need to update to fix the problem.
Apple has released an iOS update to address a number of security vulnerabilities that might have already been exploited by hackers to target iPhone users.
The security update for iOS and iPadOS patches two holes in the WebKit engine that powers Safari and other browsers, as well as another flaw at the kernel level that could affect the whole operating system.
Like most companies Apple doesn’t talk about security issues until they’ve been investigated and hopefully fixed to avoid publicising the vulnerabilities to hackers, but now that there is an update available, your options are to update or risk being targeted by cyber criminals who know about the flaws now.
