Apple regularly releases updates for iOS and iPadOS, which can fix bugs, add new features, and bring changes to the devices.
However, the recent update, iOS 16.4.1 and iPadOS 16.4.1, released on 7 April 2023, is essential as it includes security updates that fix critical vulnerabilities with IOSurfaceAccelerator and WebKit.
Apple has not provided many details but warns that these vulnerabilities could allow malicious code execution with kernel-level privileges, which could be disastrous. According to reports, these vulnerabilities have already been exploited.
If you don’t update your device, you risk being hacked, losing your data, or someone accessing your private information.
Apple devices are known for their excellent security and privacy features, but these work only if the device is updated regularly.
Cyber attackers are continuously developing and upgrading malicious code to bypass Apple’s defense, but Apple engineers are always trying to stay one step ahead.
The updates are free, and you can download them from the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. We recommend downloading them as soon as possible to ensure your device’s safety.
