A new firmware update for Apple’s new iPhones has been released to fix some security flaws in iOS 8.2, but the software also includes a new firmware patch for the iDevice that can’t be upgraded to fix the flaw, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The latest update for iOS 8, which is due to arrive next week, is based on the latest Apple software available to developers, and the company says it has not updated the firmware since January.
The company’s update comes just days after reports that Apple was looking to upgrade to the next version of the OS, iOS 10, which has been on developers’ minds for months.
Apple is also updating its iPhone app to fix an exploit that allows an attacker to remotely take over an iPhone.
Apple is still working on a fix for this vulnerability.
Apple says the firmware update fixes a vulnerability that allows attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in iOS and other platforms to gain remote code execution, which would allow them to install and use apps.
