For privacy reasons, as soon as it becomes available, iPhone owners will need to update to iOS 14.5. Experts estimate that the latest iOS 14.5 would secure third parties from the remote control (RC) of the phone.
The so-called zero-click exploits are one of the biggest threats in our digital world because they do not involve any effort by the rightful owner of an electronic device, but at the same time open the control door to malicious exploitation, without the suspicion of the smartphone’s unsuspecting owner.
The iOS 14.5 update seems to be the solution to this problem, so all iPhone owners are advised to rush to upgrade this spring when it becomes available from Apple. The new operating system uses ISA pointers with encryption, information that leads the operating system to which code will be used each time. This is an area that clearly makes a hacker’s life more difficult.
This, of course, does not mean that a hacker will stop trying to violate the security settings of Apple’s operating system, so it is a good idea to upgrade whenever a new version of iOS occurs
The improvements made by Apple “…will definitely make 0-clicks harder. Sandbox escapes too. Significantly harder.” With zero-click attacks taking place without the phone owner needing to take some action, such attacks are normally more difficult to identify and more sophisticated for the goal.
ISA pointers, a feature of iOS, tell the operating system what code to use. Apple now uses cryptography to verify these pointers by using Pointer Authentication Codes, according to Apple’s Platform Security Guide (or PAC). This is a new type of Apple security that avoids the use of malicious code by hackers in an assault.

Google makes fun of Apple for adopting outdated smartphone technology
Recently, Google held a launch conference to introduce its Pixel collection devices such as the Pixel 7 series and Pixel Watch. During the press conference, the company mentioned Apple, iPhone 14, iOS 16, and the RCS message support that Apple was hesitant to adopt. Furthermore, Google couldn’t help but criticize Apple’s attitude toward innovation.
“Pixel has always been a leader in smartphone innovation,” said Brian Rakovsky, Google’s VP of Product Management. “We see it as an admiration when others in the industry follow our example, like ‘AOD’ And ‘At a Glance’ to put useful information directly on the lock screen.” He was referring to new features in iOS 16 and the iPhone 14 Pro.
“Three years ago, we launched the crash detection system, along with other features like safety checks and emergency sharing,” Rakovsky said at the launch. Last month, Apple introduced crash detection, the iPhone 14 Pro, And the latest Apple Watch, iOS 16 can bring more security features to users. “This is a groundbreaking feature record for the Pixel’s first launch,” he concluded.
One of the most contentious issues between Apple and Google right now is Apple’s refusal to support RCS messaging. Despite Google’s public call for Apple to adopt RCS, Apple continues to limit itself to the SMS standard and iMessage, just as it has for years with Type-C. According to Report Tim Cook previously responded, “This is not what Apple users ask the company to do.”
At last night’s Google event, it pressured Apple again to change course. “RCS is the modern industry standard for messaging and it has been adopted by most industries. We want every device manufacturer to understand this and adopt RCS to make texting better for every smartphone user.”
