Apple releases announcement about security issues


At the end of 2017, Apple finished the year on a bad foot with customers. Following revelations of slowing battery life on older iPhone models (resulting in lawsuits) and low sales for the new iPhone X, the mega company founded by Steve Jobs hit a snag with its loyal customer base.

It looks like the company is attempting to avoid a rough start in 2018, with new reports indicating the company is issuing update patches following major security glitch issues in iPhone and iOS products.

From CNBC:

Apple on Thursday said it will be releasing more software updates to protect against recently disclosed security vulnerabilities.

This marked the first time that the company had made a formal statement about the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, which were reported to affect phones, servers andPCs.

Apple said that recent updates to its iOS, macOS and tvOS operating systems included protections against the Meltdown issue, which has been shown to affect several Intel chips. Apple said the operating system for its Apple Watch didn’t need a fix.”
