Hackers have found a way to break into your iPhone and Apple just issued a patch so you don’t get hacked.


If you’re rocking an iPhone, do yourself a favor and update it. Seriously, do it right now.

If you’re wondering why it sounds like I’m having a panic attack, it’s because I am. Seriously though, Apple just pushed out a patch that fixes a huge security flaw that allows hackers to gain access to any targeted iPhone, reports The Associated Press.

The spyware took advantage of three previously undisclosed weaknesses in Apple’s iPhone to take complete control of the devices

Apparently, someone tried hacking an Arab activists iPhone somewhere in the middle east. “Apple said in a statement that it fixed the vulnerability immediately after learning about it” says AP.

It’s only a matter of time until other hackers figure it out, so your best bet is downloading the patch and updating your iPhone as soon as possible.

To update your iPhone:

  • Settings
  • General
  • Software Update
  • Install
