Apple has released new updates for the iPhone, the Apple Watch and the MacBook which are iOS 12.4.1, watchOS 5.3.1 and macOS Mojave 10.14.6 respectively. The three updates are minor bug fixes for improving performance rather than providing new features.
iPhone iOS 12.4.1 Update
The new iOS update for the iPhone does not bring any major updates to the table. The update note says, ‘provides important security and stability updates’. The update is available for iPhone 5s and above, the iPad Air and above and iPod touch next generation. As reported by MacRumors, the update aims at fixing a vulnerability that let hackers create jailbreaks which were patched in the iOS 12.3 update but got accidentally unpatched in the iOS 12.4 update.
According to the developers’ note, the new macOS 10.14.6 update fixes the problem of devices shutting down in sleep mode. The update also fixes performance issues experienced while working with larger files to provide support for developing apps for MacBooks functioning on the macOS 10.14.6. The update comes with Xcode 10.3, the new update for Apple’s platform that can be used for making software supported on any Apple device.
watchOS 5.3.1 Update
The updates for Apple TV and the Apple Watch are minor security updates that fix some bugs and vulnerabilities. These might be the last minor updates Apple releases for its devices before the tvOS 13, macOS Catalina and watchOS 6 are released for the Apple TV, MacBooks and the Apple Watch respectively.
