Have you updated your iPhone with the latest iOS?

According to Apple, everyone should immediately update their iPhones due to a discovered hack where your phone can be used as a surveillance device against you. It seems a group of hackers from a company out of Israel (allegedly) have found a way to turn on your iPhone microphone and listen or your camera and watch you.  The hackers must have been seriously into reality TV and wanted to create themselves unlimited channels, right? Doubtful and according to reports, the hackers were targeting specific people

Doubtful and according to reports, the hackers were targeting specific people. In other words; most of us simply aren’t important enough to watch or listen to. So why did Apple issue a “global alert” for all users to immediately protect themselves with the security update? Well, we’d call that great marketing! News outlets everywhere have reported on this and it promotes the facade that Apple is on top of things when it comes to protecting you.  What Apple cares about more than security or their customers, is their bottom line, and they just helped it out quite a bit with millions of dollars in free publicity.

Did you update? Do you feel safer?
