What’s new in iOS 14.7.1?
Given its release number, it’s not surprising that there aren’t a lot of changes included with iOS 14.7.1, which comes available a week after the public release of iOS 14.7, and updated that included several significant new additions for iPhone users. However, it’s still an important update when you consider the included security fix.
As noted in the security content details for iOS 14.7.1, the update includes a fix for a vulnerability that may have already been actively exploited. The issue involves a memory corruption issue that may have allowed the execution of arbitrary code with kernel privileges.
The update is available for all eligible iPhones and iPads. Given the circumstances, you should consider updating as soon as possible.
