Apple releases patch to fix iOS security flaw

Apple has released an update for its iOS operating system. In addition to introducing some improvements and new functions for iPhone and iPad, the main objective of the update to version 14.4 is to fix three vulnerabilities in iOS 14.3.

According to an Apple report, these may already have been exploited by hackers. Two of the vulnerabilities allow attackers to execute arbitrary code. The third vulnerability allows for privilege escalation and ultimately device control.

For the rest, the upgrade offers, among others, camera improvements in HDR mode and when scanning QR codes. In addition, the company claims to have solved the problems of delay in pressing the keys and the lack of word suggestions.

From now on, the iPhone 12 will show a warning message every time you want to install a camera module that does not come from Apple, as is the case with new screens or batteries. The notification, however, does not affect the ability to continue using the device or access the camera.

As a general rule, users automatically receive a message announcing that the update is available. In this case, just click “Install now”.

Those who have not received the notification yet, should connect the device to the charger, activate WLAN and go to “Settings / General / Software update”. Then, they just have to press “Download and install”.
