Why There’s An i0S Update Waiting For You

iphoneNEW YORK (Feb. 23, 2014, CNNMoney) — Security experts say Apple has patched a hole that could have exposed sensitive information to hackers.Left unfixed, hackers could potentially read private communications sent over Apple devices: emails, instant messages, social media posts and even online bank transactions.But experts say it’s unlikely any hackers did, since the vulnerability was first disclosed when Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) released a security patch over the weekend.

The patch fixes the issue in the most recent software available for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches: iOS 7.0.6.

A fix is not yet available for the OS X software, the operating system for Apple computers.
