iOS 16.4—Apple Just Gave iPhone Users 33 Reasons To Update Now – Forbes
Apple’s iOS 16.4 upgrade is finally here, along with a bunch of brilliant new iPhone features. There are also important security reasons to update to iOS 16.4, because the latest iPhone upgrade fixes 33 vulnerabilities, some of which are serious.
Apple doesn’t give much detail about what’s fixed in iOS 16.4, to give as many people the opportunity to update before attackers can get hold of the details.
The iOS 16.4 upgrade fixes two flaws in the Kernel at the heart of the iPhone operating system tracked as CVE-2023-27969 and CVE-2023-27933 that could allow an attacker to execute code. A Sandbox issue tracked as CVE-2023-28178 could allow an app to bypass Privacy preferences, according to Apple’s support page.
Other issues fixed in iOS 16.4 include two vulnerabilities in WebKit, the engine that powers the iPhone maker’s Safari browser. Overall, iOS 16.4 fixes 33 security vulnerabilities in 32 iPhone components, making it the biggest update in a while.
Reasons to update to iOS 16.4
Apple’s last iPhone update—the iOS 16.3.1 upgrade issued in February—was an emergency fix for issues already being used in attacks.
None of the flaws fixed in iOS 16.4 have been used in real life attacks yet, according to Apple, but given the amount of issues, it still makes sense to update as soon as possible.
Apple also released iOS 15.7.4 and iPadOS 15.7.4 for users of older devices.
Experts say some of the bugs fixed in iOS 16.4 could be chained together to form more effective attacks. While the iOS 16.4 security fixes aren’t particularly worrying, it is possible to chain vulnerabilities together to gain root level access to the device, says independent security researcher Sean Wright.
However, Wright concedes that this is a lot harder to do remotely. “Most of the vulnerabilities are either privacy related or require local access—for example installing a malicious app making remote exploitation a lot more difficult.”
At the same time, Kernel level vulnerabilities fixed in iOS 16.4 make Apple’s latest update important, says Wright.
While you don’t need to panic, the issues fixed in iOS 16.4 make updating to the latest iPhone software a priority. You know what to do—go to your Settings > General > Software Update and upgrade to iOS 16.4 now to keep your iPhone safe.
