<p>Are you tired of hearing about Meltdown and Spectre yet? Well, get used to it, because the security updates keep on coming!</p><p>As we mentioned in our FAQ, Apple has already mitigated the effects of Meltdown on Macs in macOS 10.13.2, and of Spectre in iOS devices in iOS 11.2.

Apple promised an update to mitigate that avenue of attack was coming soon.</p><p>iOS 11.2.2 is that update.

But patches can help mitigate the risk, making it much harder for Spectre to be exploited.</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3246269/ios/apple-releases-ios-11-2-2-with-spectre-fix-for-safari-and-webkit.html#jump">To read this article in full, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
