iPhone users had been facing security issues for quite a long time. iPhone, iPod, and iPads could be remotely hacked by certain attackers. Apple released iOS 14.4 and iPadOS 14.4 updates to fix the problem of security vulnerability.  That update comprises a series of security fixes for vulnerabilities that were aggressively being exploited.

According to Apple’s security documentation, an anonymous malware application may receive higher rights and act as a gateway to exploitation. WebKit problems had given access to certain remote attackers to use malicious code on the user’s device. Apple is continuously looking into the matter and confirms that the abuse has been included in new updates.

The update includes the following features:

QR codes

Smaller QR codes can be recognized by Camera

Audio notification:

Option to organize Bluetooth device type in “Settings” for correct identification of headphones for audio notifications

Camera Notification

Notifications for when the camera on your iPhone is unable to be verified as a new, genuine Apple camera in iPhone 12 series.
