Apple Urges iPhone & iPad Users to Update Immediately Amid Security Threat

Apple is urging everyone to update their devices ASAP.

The company released iOS 14.4 and iPadOS 14.4 updates on Tuesday (January 26) after an “anonymous researcher” found people may be able to hack Apple devices remotely, via Apple’s support page.

“A remote attacker may be able to cause arbitrary code execution. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited,” the company states.

According to Katie Moussouris, the CEO and founder of cybersecurity firm Luta Security, this means the hacker could be able to access a user’s phone through the web browser and gain control of the device.

“Your regular web browsing may cause you to be held compromised, without having to do really much of anything else. And that’s a problem,” she said.

Apple says they’ve since fixed the threat in the latest update, and urge users to download it as soon as possible.

“Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product’s security,” they add.

It was recently revealed that AppleTV+ has a shocking amount of people who don’t pay for their subscriptions.
