Apple recently pushed the iOS/iPadOS 15.0.1 update to iPhone and iPad users. The official version of iOS 15.0.1 fixes a bug for unlocking with Apple Watch. This bug prevented the certified Apple Watch from unlocking the iPhone 13/Pro series when the user is wearing a mask.
It also fixes a bug that may cause the Settings App to incorrectly display a storage full alert and fixes an issue that may cause Fitness+ users of Apple Watch to start training unexpectedly.
According to reports from AppleInsider, Apple’s latest iOS 15.0.1 update does not contain patches for three zero-day vulnerabilities. These three zero-day vulnerabilities were reported to Apple by researchers a few months ago and were publicly disclosed last week.
In September, security researcher Denis Tokarev (aka illusionofcha0s) claimed that Apple had ignored multiple reports related to newly discovered zero-day vulnerabilities in the iOS system.
Tokarev reported 4 vulnerabilities to Apple between March 10 and May 4. Although one issue was patched in iOS 14.7, the other three issues are still there in the latest iOS 15.0.1.
“When I confronted them, they apologized, assured me it happened due to a processing issue and promised to list it on the security content page of the next update,” illusionofchaos wrote at the time. “There were three releases since then and they broke their promise each time.”
