iOS 9.3.5 Software Update

After patching the exploit used by Pangu Team to release their iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, Apple has just seeded yet another software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that promises to fix one more security flaw. The update log is similar to the one provided in iOS 9.3.4 which states: “iOS 9.3.5 provides an important security update for your iPhone and iPad and is recommended to all users.”

It seems that Apple has patched an important security glitch that allowed attackers to hijack and iOS device and control it remotely. Attackers could control the iPhone’s camera, microphone and even have access to audio calls made on secured cross-platform communication apps, like WhatsApp. The exploits were discovered by an independent laboratory from Toronto called Citizen Lab. Here you can find their article on the subject, which generated this iOS 9.3.5 version.
