Apple patches dozens of security flaws with iOS 15.5, over 50 fixes for macOS 12.4

Apple has released iOS 15.5, macOS 12.4, and more today with updates like new features for Apple Cash, the Podcasts app, and the Studio Display webcam fix. However, a bigger reason to update your devices is the security patches with today’s releases. iOS 15.5 includes almost 30 security fixes while macOS 12.4 features over 50.

Apple shared all the details for the security fixes in its latest software for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and more on its support page.

For both iOS and Mac, many of the flaws could allow malicious apps to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. Another for iOS says “A remote attacker may be able to cause unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.”

Specifically on Mac, one of the 50+ flaws fixed was that “Photo location information may persist after it is removed with Preview Inspector.”

Important security updates are also available for macOS Big Sur with 11.6.6, macOS Catalina, Xcode 13.4, and watchOS 8.6.

You can read about all of the vulnerabilities fixed with the latest updates below:
