Although iOS 10 is very close to launch, Apple has just launched a new iOS 9 update that fixes a vulnerability of the previous version and, apparently, nothing more.

Apple iOS 10 has been available in a beta stage for a while, but that does not mean Apple has dropped iOS 9 development completely. While iOS 9.3.3 solved various minor issues and added a vulnerability that allowed for Apple devices loaded with it to be jailbroken, its successor takes care of this problem.

Apple released iOS 9.3.4 on August 4 and, unfortunately, the document that describes its content only mentions that "a memory corruption issue was addressed through improved memory handling." However, ZDNet's Adrian Kingsley-Hughes thinks "This update is clearly a response to the jailbreak released for iOS 9.3.3 by Team Pangu."

iOS 9.3.4 arrives less than two weeks after a security vulnerability has been discovered by none other the well-known Pangu Jailbreak team. The list of affected devices includes all devices that run iOS 9, basically iPhone 4S and later, iPad 2 and later, all iPad Minis and iPad Pros, as well as the fifth and sixth generation iPod Touch.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
