PSA: You Will Want to Do This Now
Most people put off their iOS updates for a week or two and that is generally fine, but it’s probably a good idea to download the latest one, iOS 14.4.2, as soon as you can. It fixes a security flaw that Apple says may have been exploited. The update also applies to iPadOS, so take a couple of minutes out of your day to go to Settings > General > Software Update.
According to Apple’s update notes, the security flaw allowed for universal cross-site scripting. In other words, a malicious website or script could gain access to information from other webpages you have open, which isn’t great, especially since Apple says that some sites may be doing this.
This doesn’t mean it’s time to completely lock down your phone and treat it like it’s radioactive until you can get it updated. Just stay clear of sketchy websites (which is always a good idea advice), and update your phone sooner rather than later.
