Apple just released security patches to older iPhone, iPad, an Mac models that can’t be updated to the latest releases.

The update is meant for select iPhones that can’t run the latest iOS 16 update, iPads that doesn’t support iPadOS 16, and Macs that can’t already have the new Ventura update.


For iPhones, the update is the iOS 12.5.7, which supports up to the iPhone 5s as the oldest, which was released way back in 2013. There’s also the iPadOS 15.7.3 for the iPads, as well as the macOS Big Sur 11.7.3 and macOS Monterey 12.6.3 that runs on up to the 2013 MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Pro.

If you have these devices, you should have probably received an update notification and we suggest you download and install it right away as it fixes a lot of popular security problems that may put your device and personal data at risk.

The new update addressed issues such as: AppleMobileFileIntegrity, curl, dcerpc, DriverKit, Weather, Intel Graphics Driver, WebKit, PackageKit, Kernel, Mail Exchange, Maps, Screen Time, DiskArbitration, and Windows Installer.

If you don’t get an update notification, chances are, you’re using an Apple device older than the iPhone 5s or 2013 Macs. Or, you’ve enabled automatic update. To make sure, simply go to Settings > General > Software Update to see that you’re running the latest version.
