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.
