Monday's iOS 4 patches record 65 bugs; iPad won't get fixes until the fall
As part of Monday's iOS 4 upgrade, Apple patched a record 65 vulnerabilities in the iPhone, more than half of them critical.
Apple released iOS 4 for the iPhone 3G and 3GS, and the second- and third-generation iPod Touch on Monday shortly after 1 p.m. ET, 10 a.m. PT.
However, the first-generation iPhone and iPod Touch, as well as the much newer iPad , may be vulnerable to some or all of the 65 bugs. iOS 4, which launched yesterday, cannot be installed on 2007's iPhone and iPod Touch, and the upgrade is not slated to reach iPad owners until this fall.
The bug count is a record for Apple's iPhone, surpassing the previous high mark of 46 vulnerabilities patched last summer with iPhone OS 3.0.
