Apple big security bug

Hey everyone. I just recently updated iOS to 12.2 version.
Then I read some news and really afraid now to use my phone. I read there is a flaw that could allow malicious applications to access the microphone on my iPhone and record me and those around me.
Please help!
Do I need to downgrade and how?

latest version

Nope, they fixed security bugs in that latest version.
Anyway you can downgrade using iTunes.

There is nothing to worry about.

All these errors have already been fixed.
But if you have a device older than the iPhone 10, then this is not good, because even Apple recognized that with each new update, the process of the work of old models is slowed down.

You say that but what about the Pegasus issue?

At least it's not as pervasive as the phones with built in spyware (MediaTek based Android phones it seems.)
