The update resolves CVE-2022-22584, which was discovered by Mickey Jean from cybersecurity software company TrendMicro . In previous versions of operating systems, handling specially crafted files that contain malicious code can damage the device's memory. In iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3, this vulnerability was closed due to additional file verification.

In addition, the developers solved the problem with disclosing data in Safari and other browsers on iPhone and iPad. Due to a bug in the architecture of the WebKit browser engine, any site could get a history of page views on the Web, as well as a Google username, which can be used to find other information. Since third-party browsers on iPhones and iPads used the Apple engine, simply switching from Safari to Chrome or Opera was not enough.
