CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — People who own an Apple iPhone or iPad often see reminders to update their devices. But this time, the tech company is urging its customers to install the latest update without delay. Apple says the latest update plugs security flaws that might have been “actively exploited” by hackers. The software updates were made available starting Tuesday — and with them came a warning from Apple that the security holes were a serious threat. Apple is thanking anonymous researchers for pointing out the vulnerability — but has provided few details about the nature of the threat.
