Apple few days ago rolled out the iOS 14.4.2 update for iPhone and iPad devices. The update was released to a security issue in WebKit ,which the company says may have been actively exploited. It also rolled out watchOS 7.3.3 for Apple Watch as well as a patch update to iOS 12, version 12.5.2, so that iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, third-generation iPad mini, first-generation iPad Air and the sixth-generation iPod touch users can also benefit from the security fixes.
According to the company, a bug in WebKit could allow malicious web site to perform activate arbitrary cross-site scripting. The company said it is aware of a report that this bug was being exploited in the wild.
This bug-fix update comes amidst ongoing developer beta seeds of the next major release, iOS 14.5, which we expect to be released to the public in April.
iOS 14.5 includes a handful of feature enhancements, most notably the ability to unlock your iPhone using your Apple Watch whilst wearing a face mask, circumventing a common grievance with Face ID. It will also introduce App Tracking Transparency, a new permissions dialogs that apps must show before they share user identifying information with third-parties.
The update weighs about 177.3MB you can update by simply going to Settings -> General -> Software Update on your devices.
