Warning Issued For Apple’s 1.4 Billion iPad And iPhone Users

Security firm Check Point has revealed it has found a way to hack every iPhone and iPad running iOS 8 right up to betas of iOS 13. This spread covers eight years of devices (iOS 8 supports the 2011 iPhone 4S) and, with Tim Cook stating there are 1.4 billion (Yes, that’s BILLIONS!) active iPhone and iPad devices around the world, this is worrying news for the owners of pretty much all of them.

The exploit can trick the device into running malicious code capable of stealing user data and passwords.
