What Do I Need to Do?
If you don’t receive an automatic update notification, you need to update manually by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.
What are the security holes?
This vulnerability impacts the browser engine that’s used in Safari and other iOS web browsers.
The security hole leaves your Apple device vulnerable to hacks and an attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected device.
This means that an attacker could easily redirect you to a malicious page they built, phish login credentials for personal or business accounts, or deliver malware to the device to steal data.
More information is available on Apple’s official security page.
