Older iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices may be affected by ‘Spectre’ security flaw
A pair of severe security issues could allow hackers to steal data from your computers and mobile devices, recent discoveries have shown, with Intel-powered computers being the most susceptible to such an attack. Several companies, including Apple, Google, and Microsoft are already taking steps to patch the issue via software patches that should be rolled out soon (if they aren’t out already). But because this is a software fix for what appears to be hardware issues, security experts warn that computers may deliver slower performances than before once they've been patched.
Unfortunately, the same may be true for mobile devices. Google has already said that devices that have the most recent security updates are protected, but what about Apple’s iOS devices?
