Recently, a massive security exploit had come into the spotlight which affects a wide range of hardware including servers, computers, smartphones and tablets. In a nutshell, the two vulnerabilities named Meltdown and Specture takes advantage of a CPU’s performance feature to gain access to your private data from your system’s memory.
To reduce the risk of such vulnerability, Apple has finally issued an update which covers iOS, macOS and tvOS.
The Apple Watch as a whole is a refreshing take on the smart watch but it’s nowhere near perfect as it’s still lacking features in certain areas. Similar to the iOS, the Watch OS is still quite basic for it’s first iteration. For example when the iPhone was initially launched it couldn’t even copy and paste which was a point of mockery for the device’s rivals, plus it didn’t even have an AppStore till iOS 2.0 was released.
But this is set to change as a new software update will be teaching the Watch a bunch of new tricks, like Sleep Tracking and Find my Watch. While the security is already pretty decent, it’s getting further bumped up with the Find my Watch feature and possibly a proximity alert for your iPhone should the Watch get out of range.
