Apple released a new version of iOS and encouraged all users to download and install the latest update. This is reported by the publication Digital Trends.
The description of the urgent update appeared on the company’s website. The document says that iOS 15.0.2 and iPadOS 15.0.2 versions have become available for users of branded smartphones and tablets. The update is minor, but includes security patches that fix some security vulnerabilities in iPhone and iPad.
Specifically, the update addresses a vulnerability that could allow arbitrary code to run with kernel privileges. The message says that Apple engineers are aware of cases of this software error in real life.
“To protect our customers, Apple does not disclose, discuss or confirm security issues until an investigation is conducted and appropriate updates are available,” said the American company’s engineers. These updates are available to users of the Apple ecosystem from Monday, October 11th.
At the end of September, security experts found out that any Apple smartphone with iOS 15 can access sensitive data. The American company drew attention to the problem and promised to fix it.
