The patch fixes a flaw that might have let a programme run arbitrary code with kernel privileges. The kernel is the central component of the iOS code, therefore this flaw might grant an unauthorised entity full access to your phone’s internals. The WebKit vulnerability, which affects Safari and other third-party browsers on iOS, is also fixed by the update. The flaw could result in arbitrary code execution, which could let a stranger steal your data or access your device for other sinister purposes. Between now and the fall release of iOS 17 (including the beta of iOS 16.6), Apple is anticipated to release at least one more iOS 16 update.
Users have to go to Settings and download the latest update. Then, after selecting Download & Install, they have to adhere to any on-screen directions. They can also see what iOS 17 features are the most useful and secure, which iPhones iOS 17 will function with, and what iOS 16.6 might bring to their iPhones in future.
