Apple continues to plug holes in the operating systems of Macs, iPhones and iPads. The manufacturer delivered new security updates this evening to correct “zero day” vulnerabilities.
It’s going to be a busy evening for Apple’s servers, which are distributing updates for several of the manufacturer’s operating systems! macOS 14.1.2, iOS 17.1.2 and iPadOS 17.1.2 address two zero-day security vulnerabilitiesin other words these vulnerabilities could have been exploited before the manufacturer was able to correct them.
Watch out for flaws
