Important Apple update: iOS 15.3 with bug fix

The bug is a privacy vulnerability that kicks in when surfing on the Safari browser. This first appeared after the release of iOS 15 and macOs Monterey and was first discovered by security experts FingerprintJS. Last fall, he found out that Safari could access recently visited URLs. In addition, the Safari browser could even receive the Google ID and other personal data of the users. FingerprintJS has created a demo website to give those affected insight into the security gap. Here they could see everything closely.

But the new Apple update has finally closed this security gap. This is reported by the technology site 9TO5Mac, which has carried out internal tests. Also, according to the site, all devices with an iOS 15.3 or macOS Monterey 12.2 update would no longer show any data on the FingerprintJS demo page. By the way, everyone can try this out for themselves on the site.

If surfing behavior and accounts are to remain private, the updates should be installed as soon as possible. But it’s not that easy, because the update is not supported by every iPhone model. Apple has discontinued updates for some iPhones.

The new Apple update is not only available for iPhones as iOS 15.3 version. In addition to macOS Monterey 12.2, Apple also releases iPadOS 15.3, watchOS 8.3, tvOS 15.3 and HomePod 15.3. These updates do not bring any direct new features either, but also serve to fix security gaps. In addition, these also offer performance improvements for some devices. The HomePod 15.3, for example, enables Siri multi-user control for up to six users in Italian and English. In addition, problems with the Apple Watch chargers have been fixed.
