Update your iOS device right nowThe newest version of iOS patches critical flaws that could allow an attacker to take over your iPhone or iPad.
Update your IOS device to 10.3.3 right now. Operating system upgrades by their very nature very exciting as you are very well aware. Apple issued a new version of IOS but it's not an overhaul. It's more of a security patch. IOS 10.3.3 was released on July 19th, and it corrects issues found in contacts, messages, notifications and Safari. Before the update, visiting a malicious website in Safari or other WebKit based browsers could lead to address bar spoofing. That means a site could effectively disguise itself as legitimate. 10.3.3 also takes care of exploits in the wi-fi chipset found in IoS devices. The vulnerability could allow a person to take over an IoS device while it was searching for a wi-fi signal. The update is available for iPhone 5 and later, 4th generation iPads and newer, as well as 6th generation iPod Touch devices. Remember the iPod Touch? To make sure your iOS device is up to date, go into your settings. Then tap General, then tap Software Update. Download, install, and you should be protected for now.
