Simple explains the urgency of the update: “The reason for this urgency is a recently discovered security flaw in older iOS versions. If you connect to a compromised network, such as a public wifi, this flaw could allow unauthorized access to any data you transmit. By updating your iOS, you eliminate this risk.

This action reflects our dedication to safeguarding your financial information.”

Simple has also outlined the steps to update iOS devices: “Updating your device is straightforward: navigate to Settings > General > Software Update > Download and Install. Ensure your device is connected to a wifi network to download and install the update.”

If you have not updated your iOS device to version 7.0.6 or 6.1.6, or if you need to run the OS X Updater on your Mac, it’s advisable to do so immediately. For those unfamiliar with Simple, check out our detailed review of their services and app.
