Dealing With The September 2021 Apple Security Updates!

It’s been a big week in the world of Apple. Some good news, some bad.  

Apple is always in the news…

It’s been a big week in the world of Apple. Some good news, some bad. 
On Monday the 13th, a security flaw in Apple products was revealed; on Tuesday the 14th, it introduced its new products – iPhone 13, the new iPad and iPad Mini and the Apple Watch Series 7. All of which can be found here.

But more importantly, back to the security flaws. It’s scary stuff, but then again, we live in a world where the media is always pushing stories designed to keep us up at night – murder hornets, thousands of sealed indictments, a Mötley Crüe reunion and security issues ingrained within the devices we depend on the most.

To update your iOS (iPhone and iPad) device to the latest version (14.8), do the following:




A couple of things to know: First of all, you must be connected to Wi-Fi (a private connection, like your home or work Wi-Fi is preferred); also, if your battery is at 50% charged or below, you’ll have to connect your iPhone or iPad to a charger. Expect the entire process to take 15-20 minutes.

To update your Mac, do the following:

Pull down on the apple in the upper left corner of the screen and select SYSTEM PREFERENCES. There, click on SOFTWARE UPDATE, and you’ll see what updates are available. Similar to the iPhone update, you must be connected to Wi-Fi and if you’re using a laptop, be connected to a power source.
