Time to update your Apple Watch

Posted by Elizabeth Sullivan on

We know you're busy, however, you should probably pause and update your apple watch and all of your apple products — these updates fix a security issue that Apple says may have been actively exploited.

The updates contained in iOS / iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 are meant to fix arbitrary code execution exploits present in WebKit, Apple’s framework that renders most of the web content you see on your device (unless you’re using, say, Chrome or Firefox on Mac). In normal language, the updates patch a hole that let malicious websites run unchecked code on your device, so it’s not the type of update you want to put off.

If you have an older device, such as an iPhone 5s or 6, iPad Air or Mini 2 and 3, Apple also released iOS 12.5.3, which addresses WebKit flaws.
