Apple updates software for nearly every hardware platform, though one new feature almost steals the security show.
Apple has released a set of updates to its operating system across its range of hardware, from the Apple Watch to the Mac. While the updates cover a number of issues, a USB attack and its prevention may be the most important among them.
The mass release isn’t unusual behavior for Apple, says Thomas Reed, director of Mac and mobile at Malwarebytes Labs. “When Apple releases these updates, they tend to release one for each of their products,” Reed says. “They’ll release a whole bunch of these on the same date.”
