Apple releases iOS 14.8 and iPadOS 14.8 update
Apple has just released iOS 14.8 and iPadOS 14.8 updates for iOS devices to patch some serious vulnerabilities.
The new version is a security-focused update that addresses an exploit in iMessage. Additionally, the update addresses CoreGraphics and WebKit vulnerabilities that may have been actively exploited. The CoreGraphics vulnerability was used to target Bahraini activists whose iPhones were hacked with spyware.
The updates can be downloaded on all eligible devices over the air in the Settings app. The updates are compatible with the iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation).
To get the new software update, go to Settings > General > Software Update.
