iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch owners: Update Now!

Even our beloved iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches are not immune to security threats. They are still much safer, on the whole, than Android devices. However, Apple pushed through an EMERGENCY update on Friday.

ioS 7.0.6. If you haven’t turned on your device in a few days or been notified that in installed — you need to grab this now.

Tap on the Settings app >> General >> Software update.

This update will take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour depending on the speed of your internet connection and what previous updates you have ignored.

Don’t ignore security updates. This is not meant to sound harsh but — if you recently got an iOS device and thought you can ignore updates —- you probably should have stayed with a flip phone or a paper tablet. (Ha Ha).
