Yesterday Apple made available to users i OS 16.2 and iPad 16.2 , two important updates that introduced some interesting new features, also going to resolve some serious vulnerabilities known to the community of IT security experts.

 

These are a whole series of security bugs that had been discovered and reported by various security experts over the past few months. Flaws affecting Webkit, the kernel, but also graphics drivers, and some important applications such as Safari, Photos and Weather.

At least as far as we know, thanks to the work of cyber security researchers, Apple would have been able to correct the vulnerabilities even before they were identified (and therefore exploited) by cyber crime . Nevertheless, it is essential to download the two updates as soon as possible.

If you don’t have an iPhone or iPad compatible with iOS16, however, you have nothing to fear: the patch that corrects the vulnerabilities is also included in the iOS 15.7.2 and iPadOS 15.7.2 updates, dedicated to older devices.

 

macOS Ventura 13.1 also contains fixes to vulnerabilities introduced with updates for iPhone and iPad. Similarly, fixes are also included in macOS Monterey 12.6.2 or macOS Big Sur 11.7.2 updates.
