A very important update

Apple has released a series of new updates for the iPhone and other Apple devices.

According to security researchers at the Citizen Lab, a new bug allows governments to install Pegasus spyware into their devices.

Further investigation reveals that the bug allows a ‘zero-click installation', meaning the spyware can get into your device without you clicking a link.

Researchers found the bug in March 2021 after analysing the phone of a Saudi activist who was hacked with the NSO group’s Pegasus spyware.

Pegasus spyware is supposedly able to steal passwords, data or even activate your phone’s camera and microphone.

It can harvest all the data stored on your device and forward it to the source, as the spyware is focused on spying and collecting information.

Apple believes that the spyware may already have exploited several devices.

However, iOS 14.8 mainly focuses on tightening security on devices.

How to install iOs 14.8

You phone may update automatically.

If it does not, head to “Settings”, then “General” and then hit “Software Update”.

This update needs to occur across all Apple products you own, including Macs, iPads, Apple Watches.
