Mac OS updatesAttention iPhone and iPad users! Apple has released an emergency update to patch a serious vulnerability found in iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS. The public doesn’t get too many details about these vulnerabilities since Apple is known to keep specifics tight until it has had a chance to do an internal investigation into the issue. Apple claims that the vulnerability is being actively exploited so it’s very important that all users install this update immediately. Apple has even pushed out the update for older devices including iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, and iPod touch (6th generation).

How to Install the Updates

If you don’t see an automatic prompt or you don’t have auto-updates turned on, go to Settings > General > Software Update and for an Apple Watch, head into the Apple Watch app.
