Apple updates software to patch potential exploits

Apple issues latest security patches

On Thursday, Apple’s updates to all of its operating systems included some new features — but more importantly, a severe security flaw that was actively being exploited was stopped in its tracks.

On Thursday, Apple released iOS 16.5, iPadOS 16.5, watchOS 9.5, macOS Ventura 13.4, and tvOS 16.5. The primary new element is a brand new “Sports” tab in the Apple News app, along with new features for Siri and the Apple TV app.

However, in addition to all that, the new software updates also include patches for potentially exploited issues, all related to WebKit. The patches are present across all the updated software, and, as such, users should make sure to update their devices as soon as possible.

To update your iOS and macOS devices, open Settings — > General — > Software Update and follow the onscreen instructions. If you have Automatic Updates switched on, your devices will update the next time they are charging.
