If you’re one of the world’s 100 million iPhone owners, you’re already aware that Apple’s apps are constantly changing and being updated. Some updates, on the other hand, necessitate urgent attention. Both iPhone users have received an immediate alert from Apple.
If you own an iPhone, you can upgrade it right away. On May 3, Apple released a statement reminding users of a new software upgrade, iOS 14.5.1, for iPhone 6s and later. According to Apple, this upgrade “addressed a memory corruption problem with better state management.”
According to 9to5Mac, the firm said in a tweet, “This update provides important security updates and is recommended for all users,” To get the update, go to your iPhone’s Settings app, then General, and then Software Update. You will get the update there and install it.
This latest update can confuse you, as you’re obviously just updating your iPhone. Apple announced this latest version just one week after iOS 14.5 was released. According to Forbes, the upgrade to iOS 14.5.1 solves many major security problems that could susceptible iOS apps. These problems arise from the webkit browser engine that supports the Safari web browser, and the Mail and App Store applications, says TechRadar.
Sean Wright, SME’s security application leader at Immersive Labs, told Forbes that the upgrade is necessary sooner rather than later.
Apple has updated the iOS 14.5 for older iPhone versions named iOS 12.5.3. According to Apple, the user of iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus can access this upgrade, which also fixes the “problem of memory corruption.” The company has recently updated for older iPhones and said that Wright has said that while this latest update might seem to be just one of several Apple updates, it “shows how serious this is.”
New updates for iPhone users including Apple tracking transparency, Apple Watch Unlock, Siri enhancements and more have been introduced by Apple iOS 14.5. The iOS 14.5.1 update corrects a problem that certain users experienced with the latest Transparency App Tracking functionality according to 9to5Mac.
“This update addresses an application tracking transparency problem where users who have previously deactivated Allow Applications for Tracking Tracking Request cannot receive instructions from the apps until it has been reenabled,” said Apple.
