Apple rolls out iOS 10.3.1 software update to fix Wi-Fi-related security loophole


Apple released the iOS 10.3 update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Now the company is pushing out a minor, incremental iOS 10.3.1 software update over-the-air. With this update, Apple addresses a potential Wi-Fi vulnerability that could let hackers gain access to your iOS device.

The new iOS 10.3.1 update file measures 28.7MB and can be downloaded over-the-air. The only thing it addresses is a security of your iPhone or iPad. According to Apple’s Security Advisary, an attacker in the range can remotely send and execute malicious code on the Wi-Fi chip.

Of course, there are some bug fixes but the changelog doesn’t mention them specifically. The update patches the loophole for iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later, and iPod touch 6th generation and later.
