Apple is rolling out an update for the month to several of its devices, including Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. This update fixes a security issue.
This month’s update comes with iOS/iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1. It will fix arbitrary code execution exploits present in WebKit, which is an Apple framework, rendering most of the web content you see on your device.
There is an update for older devices, including an iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, and 3 – OS 12.5.3, which addresses WebKit flaws.
To recall here, there have been two recent updates – iOS 14.4 and 14.4.2 – which closed similar security holes. According to The Verge:
“Even if you don’t think you should update because you use an alternative web browser on your Mac, or don’t browse the web on your Apple Watch (for obvious reasons), it’s still worth updating any devices you may have — WebKit can be used in unexpected places, and it’s never good to have security holes open on your devices, especially ones that may have been exploited.”
