Bugs are problems in Apple’s iPhone code or system.

Hackers can exploit these bugs to take control of parts (or even all) of your handset.

Therefore, Apple fixes these regularly with updates.

But if you don’t regularly install iOS updates on your iPhone, the loopholes exploited by hackers remain open.

To update your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Software update.

It’s also important to make sure you’re using a relatively recent model.

Some very old iPhone models no longer receive iOS updates.

This poses a significant risk of hacking, so it’s worth considering an upgrade as soon as possible.

For example, when the iOS 16 update lands in September, Apple’s 1st generation iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and iPhone SE will be cut off.

These phones were compatible with the current iOS 15.6 but will not get iOS 16.

If you’re using older iPhones, you’re already cut off, so consider upgrading to a newer model right away.

Here is the full list of devices supported by iOS 16:

  • 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’re using an older iPhone, you simply need to upgrade your handset to a newer device to access iOS 16.

In any case, iOS 16 is packed with new features that might tempt you.

This includes a new lock screen with widgets, stylized portrait wallpapers and notifications that roll up from the bottom.

Messages is also getting a major update that allows you to edit or retrieve recently sent messages, as well as recover recently deleted messages.

You can also mark conversations as unread.
