Apple confirms all devices affected by Meltdown and Spectre

Apple has released software updates for its operating systems after confirming that all its devices are affected by the microchip flaws dubbed Spectre and Meltdown.

The tech industry has scrambled to fix the chip flaws that apply to all modern processors and could leave consumers and businesses at risk of having their data accessed or stolen.


While all Mac systems and iOS devices are affected, Apple said there were no known exploits impacting Apple device users and recommended downloading software only from trusted sources.

Apple has released mitigations in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, and tvOS 11.2 to help defend against Meltdown, and said the Apple Watch was unaffected.
