Apple fixed 66 vulnerabilities across seven product lines, including Safari, iTunes, macOS, and iOS, on Monday. While the upgrades do not appear to include any major new functionality, they do address several performance issues that should make the user experience a bit more pleasant.

Enhances compatibility of the Mac App Store with future software updates.

Once again, due to the critical nature of some of these vulnerabilities, it is strongly advised that you upgrade any affected Apple devices and operating systems as soon as possible.

Furthermore, Apple also listed the security improvements incorporated in the macOS Sierra 10.12.5, watchOS 3.2.2 (available for all Apple Watch models), and tvOS 10.2.1 (available only for Apple TV 4th generation) releases here, here, and here.




According to 9ToMac, iOS 10.3.2 follows the March release of iOS 10.3 which includes Find My AirPods, CarPlay updates, Apple File System, and more. The tech giant also unleashed the macOS 10.12.5, watchOS 3.2.2 and tvOS 10.2.1. Both updates focus on bug fixes and security improvements and not new features. It would seem that Mini sales have been cannibalized by the 5.5-inch Plus-sized iPhone, which didn't exist back in 2012 when the original iPad Mini was introduced. Not only do iPhones and iPads need to be updated to protect against remote hijackings, but Apple has patches for Macs, Apple TVs, Apple Watches and even its Windows software. "However, the consequences of not applying these updates could prove costly in the months to come".

As always, these new updates are recommended for all users.

The security measure essentially mandates non-native app users adopt two-factor authentication for apps that can access iCloud such as Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird.
