Apple releases iOS 9.3.5 — immediate upgrade advised

Ten days ago Apple was informed of a serious security vulnerability in the operating system that powers iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches. Apple has released iOS 9.3.5 which patches that vulnerability, and we advise users to upgrade all iOS devices to 9.3.5 as soon as possible. 

To do so, go to Settings > General > Software Update and follow the onscreen instructions. 

The exploit is unlikely to be in wide-spread use as it was developed by a shadowy hacking company that appears to work mostly for governments who are targeting specific individuals. Nonetheless, the hack they created is a serious one, so all devices should be upgraded. 

If your iOS device is too old to upgrade to 9.3.5—the iPhone 4 and early models cannot run iOS 9, for example—you should buy a newer iOS device. Older models cannot be secured.
