Inside you will find a surprising iPhone update: iOS 16.1.1.

It includes security fixes designed to prevent hackers from taking control of your iPhone — killing apps or running dangerous code to spy on you.

“This update includes bug fixes and security updates and is recommended for all users,” Apple said.

“A remote user may cause an unexpected app termination or arbitrary code execution.”

The update fixed two vulnerabilities, both discovered by Google’s Project Zero team.

The update comes just days after the release of iOS 16.1, which also included security fixes.

Apple added, “Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to help keep your Apple product secure.”

The update is available now for free and it is extremely important that you install it as soon as possible.

No support

The bad news is that not all users can get iOS 16.1.1.

If you can update to iOS 16 everything is fine, but it will still be missing on a very old iPhone model.

Here is a list of all devices supported by iOS 16 (and iOS 16.1.1):

  • iPhone 14
  • iPhone 14Plus
  • iPhone 14 pro
  • iPhone 14 pro max
  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 mini
  • iPhone 13 pro
  • iPhone 13 Pro max
  • iphone 12
  • iPhone 12 mini
  • iPhone 12 pro
  • iPhone 12 pro max
  • iphone 11
  • iPhone 11 pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro max
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8plus
  • iPhone SE (2nd generation or newer)

If you can’t get the latest iOS, you’ll lose access to the latest security fixes.

These are critical patches that close vulnerabilities used by hackers to gain access to your systems.
