iOS 7.0.6 update plugs critical security hole

If you are an iPhone or iPad user and you’re still using an iOS version prior to 7.0.6, I can’t stress enough that you need to update iOS. Prior to iOS 7.0.6, there’s an SSL bug that can compromise your secure data like bank web site passwords.

To install the update on your iOS device like to iPhone, first make a backup of your device. Now make sure that you are connected to WiFi and you have enough battery juice (better yet connect your iOS device to the charger). Go to the Settings app and click on General / Software Update. You’ll be able to see a screen similar to the one below.

iOS-7.0.6-update

Click on Download and install. After downloading your iPhone will install the update and restart iOS. That’s it.
