There are now 197 new reasons for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users to upgrade to iOS 6, with Apple closing the same number of vulnerabilities in its mobile operating system.
The company released its security bulletin for the new version of iOS today, revealing what security flaws have existed in previous versions.
Vulnerabilities include three different ways of completely bypassing iOS’ passcode lock, and at least 10 different ways of running arbitrary code. The latter types of vulnerabilities are what enable users to jailbreak their devices.
