Apple issues urgent global iPhone software update

SuperEd
Things getting a bit messy for Apple, dodgy screens and now this.

Apple have issued an urgent iPhone software update after attempted hack with 'most sophisticated spyware' ever seen.

Apple has issued a global upgrade of its iOS mobile operating system after a botched attempt to break into the iPhone of an Arab activist using hitherto unknown espionage software.

The spyware took advantage of three previously undisclosed weaknesses in iOS to take complete control of iPhone devices.

An Apple spokesperson said: “We were made aware of this vulnerability and immediately fixed it with iOS 9.3.5. We advise all of our customers to always download the latest version of iOS to protect themselves against potential security exploits.”

Won't let me download unless connected to wifi

It's not just for the phone but for iPad too.

Apple users anxiously download and install update and BOOM, battery life killed...! What is it with Apple? They can't produce an update without it killing battery life!

Blasphemous

I have had the same iPhone for 5 years and have never had the problem you mention.

Not spyware, probably Skynet oO

If that were true, no iPhones would have any battery at all...

Thanks OP for bringing this to my attention. It seems Apple didn't really press me to update as urgently as they should have.

With regards to battery comments, my battery went from 74% to 69% so nothing groundbreaking.

and lose my jailbreak? Dream on Apple, nice try

What was the dodgy Screen Issue? My mother had to have hers replaced yesterday and had to pay £99?
