With the highly anticipated arrival of Vision Pro just around the corner, Apple is taking proactive measures to ensure the security of its users. The tech giant has released visionOS 1.0.2, a crucial update designed to fix a potentially exploited WebKit flaw.
As we eagerly await the launch of Vision Pro, Apple has rolled out visionOS 1.0.2, aimed at addressing a security vulnerability in WebKit. This flaw, if left unpatched, could lead to arbitrary code execution when processing maliciously crafted web content. Apple has already received reports of this issue being actively exploited, underlining the urgency of updating to the latest version.
Unlike its predecessor, visionOS 1.0.2 arrives without detailed release notes. However, Apple’s Security Updates page sheds light on the critical fix included in this release: a resolution to a type confusion issue with enhanced checks. This improvement is paramount in fortifying the system against potential security breaches.
For those eagerly awaiting the delivery of their Vision Pro on February 2, it is strongly recommended to install visionOS 1.0.2 before embarking on exploration. By doing so, users can ensure a secure and seamless experience with their new device.
It’s worth noting that Apple emphasizes the significance of this security update, stating that it was initially released for the developer build of visionOS 1.0.1. However, for Vision Pro recipients, version 1.0.2 will be the available update from version 1.0.
