Apple has come out to confirm that it’s shutting the door of security update for the Apple iOS 14 operating system. This means the company won’t rolling out monthly security update for iOS 14 users. And this makes those on the old iOS 14 prone to security threats.
Back in June 2021, Apple had said it will still roll out monthly security updates for users even after the release of the new Apple iOS 15. But, according to apple in a recent interview, the company said that update was only temporary.
In part Apple told Ars that it always intended the “iOS 14 security update option to be temporary[…] people could have a short grace period while Apple worked out the worst of the new operating system’s early bugs, but you would always eventually have to upgrade to stay patched”.
And now that the grace period is over and there is a more stable iOS 15, all iOS 14 users are expected to update to iOS 15.
The last iOS 14 update was the iOS 14.8.1, but that is no longer the option for those on a previous version of iOS 14. Apple iOS 14 users are now getting notifications to install the latest version of iOS 15.2.1.
If you stay in the old iOS, you risk the security of your Apple iPhone. So, it’s probably best you over to the more stable and secure Apple iOS 15 latest build.
