Affected models include iPhone 6S and later, newer iPads, and Macs running macOS Monterey and later, with the flaws potentially capable of gaining full access to the device.
Apple has disclosed serious security vulnerabilities for iPhone, iPad, and Mac that could allow attackers to take full control of devices.
Apple added that it is “aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited.”
Security experts have advised users to urgently update affected devices: iPhone 6S and later, newer iPads, and Mac computers running macOS Monterey.
In a security update on its support page, Apple said one of the flaws means a malicious app “may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges,” which TechCrunch describes as full access to the device.
TechCrunch reported that the other, a WebKit bug, could be exploited if a vulnerable device accesses or processes “maliciously crafted web content [that] can lead to the execution of arbitrary code.”
Apple did not provide further information on the number of users affected by the vulnerability.
The warning to users comes ahead of the traditional September launch of the latest iPhone, which is expected to be called the iPhone 14 this year.
