Apple has rolled out the latest versions of iOS and iPadOS, namely 17.0.3. For those with an iPhone 15 Pro, this update is essential. As previously mentioned, certain users have reported overheating issues with their iPhone 15 Pro, which Apple attributes to faulty app updates and a bug in iOS 17. The release notes for iOS 17.0.3 state that these issues have been addressed.
This latest version includes crucial bug repairs, security enhancements, and resolves a problem that could result in iPhone overheating.
If you own an iPhone 15 Pro, be sure to update your apps to avoid any potential issues. Notable popular apps such as Uber and Instagram have recently released updates, possibly related to the issue.
Even if you do not own the newest iPhone, it is still recommended to download this update. It addresses two security vulnerabilities, one of which has already been used to exploit earlier versions of iOS. The update was released in late July as iOS 16.6, and the fixes will also be included in the upcoming iOS 17.1, currently undergoing testing and expected to be released later this month.
Possible impact: A malicious actor within the local network could potentially gain higher levels of access. Apple has been made aware of a potential exploit that may have been used on iOS versions prior to iOS 16.6.
The problem was resolved by implementing better checks.
To install the latest version of iOS on your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings, select General, and then choose Software Update. Once the update is available, choose to download and install it immediately by clicking “Update Now,” or select “Update Tonight” to have it installed while you sleep.
