If you own an iPhone, you need to install the latest update right away. It’s a security patch to keep hackers from installing spyware on your phone. The so-called Pegasus program can then eavesdrop or steal data from your device — including passwords. And it’s not just iPhone, but any Apple device that runs iOS.
The most insidious part about this — your phone can get infected even if you don’t click on anything. That’s why you need to install the update.
To update your iPhone or iPad
Go to Settings.
Tap Software Update.
Plug in your device or make sure it has 50% battery life or more.
Tap “Install Now.”
