Apple has always been known to have relatively safe hardware. There was a long-held belief that if you had any Apple product, you were safe from the fears of viruses. It is primarily true that writing a virus for OS software takes more effort than Microsoft. Some hackers took this challenge to heart, and after a recent security update, Apple sent a warning you may need to heed.

Hackers found an exploit in the software that runs Safari, the web browser for Apple. All phones after the S6, iPads, and Mac computers were open to being taken over by any hacker aware of the exploit. A security update was quickly sent out to hotfix the issue, and Apple is asking you to download update iOS 15.6.1. No one has reported their computers being taken over, but Apple was not taking any chances. [Source Daily Mail]
