iPhone Users Urged to Update to Patch 2 Zero-Days

Apple users have been put on alert as critical vulnerabilities have been found in both iOS and macOS software. These threats involve two zero-day exploits, which hackers have already been taking advantage of, prompting Apple to urge its iPhone users to update their devices urgently. The vulnerabilities are situated in the kernel and WebKit of iOS and macOS, allowing threat actors access to the device’s system. Once inside, they can potentially take total control of the device. With this form of infiltration already under attack, immediate updates to patch these flaws are critical. Apple has brought separate fixes to macOS and iOS to deal with these respective issues.
