Like the intervening iOS 10.3.1 update, the release notes for 10.3.2 only say that it "includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad", which suggests that the release is primarily focused on security updates. The most significant patch Apple released yesterday is for the macOS. Interestingly, several of the SQLite vulnerabilities were discovered through Google's OSS-Fuzz program, which searches for flaws in widely used open source software applications.

To install the updates, click the Apple logo in the menu bar, select App Store, click Updates and then click Install next to the OS and Safari updates. Both these updates bring quite a few bug fixes as well as a few new features.

Every Apple product, and even Apple software for PCs, just got security updates. The tech giant also unleashed the macOS 10.12.5, watchOS 3.2.2 and tvOS 10.2.1.

Apple TV, meanwhile, has been sent tvOS 10.2.1 to patch 23 flaws, including 12 holes in the WebKit engine that allow cross-site scripting and remote code execution attacks.

However, it was not made clear to whether Apple would continue to sell the devices after it cuts the updates for good.

Speaking after a Cobra meeting on Saturday, Rudd admitted "there's always more" that can be done to protect against viruses. By one security firm's count, the malware struck at least 74 countries, including the US , where its effects seemed muted.

According to the Zero Day Initiative, which helps put on Pwn2Own with Trend Micro, 35 percent of the bugs fixed by Apple this week were found through the competition. The Apple fanatics can expect the company to announce the release of iOS 11 on the first night of the event.

As always, these new updates are recommended for all users.

Sources close to Apple said the iPad mini has been "sized out of its own category" - as many users opt for the larger handsets instead of a small iPad.
