UPDATE YOUR IPAD

As of January 27, 2022, Apple released an update to IOS 15 that plugs a major security hole. Update your iPad at home. TONIGHT. It is **that** critical.

Settings –> General –> Software Update

Note: If you don’t see an update pending, then check each night for the next week.

What does it fix? Attackers can steal your recent browser history, and even details about your logged accounts [such as Google].

The bug affects all browsers on the iPad – which would mean Chrome AND Firefox are vulnerable as well as Safari.

SHOULD I PANIC?

No. This is a reality of living in the 21st century. In the 1950’s we were told to lock our cars, in the 1960’s to lock our doors. Now we have to keep our devices updated.

I’D LIKE TO KNOW MORE.

Well, then CLICK HERE for an article about the issue, and HERE for Apple’s Release notes.

MY IPAD IS OUT OF ROOM AND I CANNOT UPDATE.

  • Make more room on your ipad – see THIS ARTICLE for help.
  • Come by the ARC. We *can get your ipad updated, but it will take several hours.

I HAVE QUESTIONS

Keep Safe Online

Since it is Summer, now is the PERFECT time to learn about online safety. **IF** you have a Powerschool account at MDS, you can join an LMS “class” that has several modules you can go through.

None of this is meant to scare you – but it is always good to be prepared, to know when things look a little fishy. That can save a TON of headaches.
