*To own an Apple device is to live in constant _fear_ of zero-day holes!*.
There are so many zero-day bugs in both iOS and macOS that hackers stopped accepting them & today it's reported there are more that Apple never finds.
The vulnerability (tracked as CVE-2021-30869) is long exploited in the wild.
*More zero-days found (never found by Apple!) in older iOS & macOS kernels* <https://www.techradar.com/sg/news/apple-releases-emergency-ios-and-macos-security-patch-so-update-now>
"The vulnerability impacts iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air,
iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, and iPod touch (6th generation) running iOS
12.5.5, along with Macs running macOS Catalina."
Never forget Apple doesn't ever test iOS or macOS (which is one reason Apple has the LOWEST R&D expenses of any similar high tech company on the planet).
