Following the release of iOS 14.7 earlier this week and iPadOS 14.7 today, Apple has now published the full details about the security fixes included in the updates. Apple says that iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 fix an array of security bugs, ranging from WebKit vulnerabilities to Find My vulnerabilities and more.

Notably, Apple’s security updates webpage does not make mention of the Pegasus spyware that was used to target human rights activists, lawyers, journalists, and politicians. This spyware uses Apple’s iMessage system as a vector by which to deliver zero-click attacks, and it’s unclear when Apple will roll out a fix.

Below are the full details of the security fixes included in iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7, courtesy of Apple. The important thing to consider here, however, is that Apple does not say that any of the security vulnerabilities patched in iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 were actively exploited in the wild.
