In order to bypass the possibility of getting hit by hackers, Apple just issued emergency software updates and is asking that everyone update their devices as soon as possible. On Sept. 13, Ivan Krstić, Apple’s head of security engineering and architecture, told the NYT that he is urging customers to install iOS 14.8, MacOS 11.6, and WatchOS 7.6.2, which are the latest software updates created to fix the major security flaw.
“This spyware can do everything an iPhone user can do on their device and more,” John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher at Citizen Lab, told the news outlet. “Do you own an Apple product? Update it today.”
