Millions of iPhone users have warned of a terrible new danger – check your device now
ANOTHER flaw has been discovered in Apple’s latest iPhone update, allowing hackers to access photos, messages and more.
Apple introduced iOS 16 in June last year, and since then, several security flaws have been discovered by cyber experts.
The latest discovery allows hackers to bypass security protections to inject malware into the iPhone or iPad.
This malicious code gives scammers access to this device’s photo and video album, messages, address book and calendar.
This means that cyber criminals could potentially spy on users using their devices’ audio and video capabilities.
However, there is a really simple way to protect yourself.
Apple has already fixed the bug in an even more recent update, iOS 16.3.1.
iPhone owners absolutely must download the latest fix that will be available in Ideas > Generally > Software update.
Experts have used Twitter, Reddit, and other online forums to share their Apple bug reports.
They say that after the latest “iOS 16” update, they encounter an unusual number of errors and poor system performance.
Users also suffer from camera freezes, random sound changes and low battery.
Apple typically does not notify users of security or operational issues until it has completed an investigation and found a solution.
