Apple releases iOS 14.4.1, watchOS 7.3.2 & macOS 11.2.3 with security updates

The news: Apple released a slew of security updates for iOS, watchOS and macOS on Monday morning.


  • So…what’s new in these updates? Apple says “this update provides important security updates and is recommended for all users”
  • Specifically, Apple has fixed a WebKit vulnerability that was seemingly pretty important

WebKit

Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation)

Impact: Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution

Description: A memory corruption issue was addressed with improved validation.

CVE-2021-1844: Clément Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Group, Alison Huffman of Microsoft Browser Vulnerability Research

Our take: Looks like these updates were pushed out due to a potential security risk, but there isn’t anything else new to see here. Updating simply nets you better security on your device, which is always recommended.
