Install iOS 16.1 to get this vital 0-day security fix

If you’ve yet to update to iOS 16.1, now might be a very good time to do so — because it includes an important fix for a zero-day exploit that Apple says may have already been exploited in the wild.

Apple released the latest version of iOS 16 to the public earlier this week along with a list of improvements and features. There’s one specific security fix that’s worth noting though. Apple says that previous versions of iOS allowed an app with root privileges to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges.
