Apple is al set to launch its new 2019 iPhones on Tuesday, September 10 and the grand release of iOS 13 is foreseen in the coming few days. But in case you had an opinion that implied we were done with iOS 12 releases, you might want to reconsider.
In the past hours, Apple has created iOS to 12.4.1 and the update is now live and accessible. Apple has also disclosed updates to watchOS, tvOS, and macOS.
It’s a patch to fix a susceptibility, one that could encompass iPhones, from 5s onwards, iPads going back to the iPad Air and even the iPod touch sixth-generation model.
The exposure meant that these appliances could be open to jailbreaking. And if your iPhone can be jailbroken, it can be severed.
If this bug sounds typical, it’s because this is an issue that was fixed in May with the coming of iOS 12.3.
Apple has admitted the investment of Project Zero among the furlough notes for iOS 12.4.1 and went on to “acknowledge @Pwn20wnd for their assistance”.
This fix is the only component detailed in Apple’s security content data for the update, though that doesn’t mean there aren’t other bugs being slid underfoot here as well.
Apple will be striving there are no other unexpected outcomes from this latest update. If more crinkles become apparent, we will detail them here, so please check back and we hope that the company itself won’t delay in fixing them.
How to get your hands on the update:
You’ll probably know the drill by now, but if not, it’s pretty simple to download the update. Go to the Settings app, tap General, then Software Update.
Remark: it can take a little while sometimes for all competent devices to be prepared to download it. It’s a relatively small update, so it shouldn’t take extended hours to download and install.
