More details about the update

  • the main point is that the organization is aware that “this concern could have been deliberately exploited.
  • This suggests that it represents a real and present threat. 
  • The fact that Apple announced iOS 14.4.2 (along with iOS 12.5.2) out of nowhere only emphasizes how serious the business is about this.
  • Apple iOS 14.4.2, as its precursor, is a one-issue update, but the issue is clearly important.
  • I understand why cautious upgraders may want to wait for my final decision, but early reviews suggest that this is another secure version, 
  • I recommend that all iPhone and iPad owners apply the patch as soon as possible.
  • Upgrade to iOS 14.4.2, jailbreakers, and the jailbreak will be revoked. 
  • This is due to the fact that Unc0ver, a successful jailbreaking community, is currently unable to jailbreak past iOS 14.3, while checkra1n has an iOS 14 jailbreak (not iOS 14.4.2)
