Apple has released an update to iPhone and iPad devices which brings an important security fix for critical security vulnerabilities. Releasing the iOS 14.4.2, the company said that the update includes a fix for Webkit that may have been actively exploited.

The Cupertino-based company said that a bug in Webkit may have allowed malicious websites to perform cross-site scripting arbitrarily. The iPhone maker is aware of a report which says that the bug was being exploited in the wild.

To install the latest iOS update on your device, head to Settings-> General -> Software Update.

The latest update comes days before the beta roll out of iOS 14.5. The iPhone maker is expected to release developer beta seeds of iOS 14.5 in the next month.

iOS 14.5 is said to come with a handful of new features. Key feature will be the ability to unlock the Apple iPhone using the Apple Watch. With the new feature, users will be able to unlock their phone even while wearing a mask. The feature will address the problem of removing masks every time one has to unlock the iPhone.

The upcoming iOS update is also expected to introduce App Tracking Transparency. The feature will show new permissions dialogs in the apps before they share user identifying information with third-parties.

Apple has also released watchOS 7.3.3 for Apple Watch along with a patch update to iOS 12, version 12.5.2 for the iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, third-generation iPad mini, first-generation iPad Air and the sixth-generation iPod touch users.
