» ‘Apple confirms iOS 13.5.1 security update patches vulnerability, breaking unc0ver jailbreak’

The insecure party is over.

It’s hard to judge the relative security of Apple’s operating systems from news reports of vulnerabilities. Certain sites (cough Forbes cough) portray them in a vacuum with headlines such as “Apple just gave iOS users a reason to leave”.

Where would they go? Android? Is it any better? It doesn’t seem like it.

Definitely demand better releases from Apple and Google and Microsoft. But don’t pretend that a particular bug is going to drive people from a platform.

As Wired was reporting it could take weeks to fix this bug, it taking a little over a week is a relief.
