Apple issued an update to iOS 10 on Monday bringing a number of bug fixes to iPhone and iPad users.
The iOS 10.2.1 update contains numerous security updates and fixes that could potentially stop attackers taking control of your iDevice.
According to Apple's official release notes, most of the fixes are for WebKit, and patches vulnerabilities including one that allowed for arbitrary code executions and another that allowed for malicious websites to shove pop-ups in iPhone users' faces.
11 of the WebKit flaws were reported by Google's Project Zero, which also this week outed a WebEx vulnerability that allowed attackers to run arbitrary code remotely on Windows PCs that Cisco's Chrome plugin installed.
Also included in iOS 10.2.1 is a patch for a Contacts bug that allowed a malicious contact card crashing the application, a fix for an issue that enabled Auto Unlock to function when an Apple Watch isn't strapped to a users' wrist, and a number of other Kernal and WiFi fixes.
Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the update includes a fix for the battery issue that has been plaguing iPhone users since the release of iOS 10.1.1. This much moaned about problem sees the handset is shutting down when its battery percentage is showing as 30 per cent.
The update is available now for all devices that support iOS 10: the iPhone 5 and newer, the fourth-generation iPad and newer, the iPad Mini 2 and newer, both iPad Pros, and the sixth-generation iPod Touch. It can be downloaded by heading to Settings > General > Software update.
The release of iOS 10.2.1 suggests that iOS 10.3 could be just around the corner, which is expected to bring a new 'Theatre Mode' to iPhone users.
