Apple has released a new software update for the iPhone and iPad, iOS 14.8 for the iPhone and iPadOS 14.8 for the iPad.
These updates come just before Apple’s iPhone 13 press event which takes place later today, the update lands two months after the release of iOS 14.7.
The iPadOS 14.8 and iOS 14.8 software updates do not appear to come with any new features, these updates include some security fixes for two issues.
The issues are related to possible security flaws with CoreGraphics and with WebKit, you can see details on these issues at the link below. You can install the update on your device by going to Settings > General > Software update.
This will be the final software update for iOS 14, the next software updates for the iPhone and iPad will be iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Apple is expected to announced at their press event today when they will be releasing the updates.
They will also be making their new iPhone 13 handsets and the Apple Watch Series 7 official at today’s press event. We are expecting them to release four new iPhones, the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini and the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.
