SECURITY ALERT: Urgent updates for Apple devices

Apple has released several important security updates which affect every iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch.

Patches will fix zero-click vulnerabilities that can be executed without a single bit of voluntary action on behalf of the victim. 

Harvard Devices

For any machine/device that is SPH IT-configured and managed, patches will be pushed out to you, and you will be prompted to upgrade your machine/device.

Personal Devices

IT strongly recommends that everyone upgrade their Mac computers and devices as soon as possible. IT recommends applying the upgrades when you have a free hour because the upgrades can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 45 minutes depending upon your machine/device.

Upgrade instructions for non-Harvard managed computers and devices may be found at the Apple Security Web Site.

If you need assistance on upgrading and installing the security patch, please contact the Service Desk at or 432-4357.
