Apple has released iOS 13.5.1 to the public following the release of iOS 13.5 last month. The update, according to Apple, brings important security updates. The biggest change coming with this update is that it patches the vulnerability used by the Unc0ver jailbreak tool. This update comes after a popular developer released a jailbreak last week that broke virtually any iPhone. The iOS 13.5.1 update is available for iPhone 6s and later, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad mini 4 and later and the iPod touch 7th generation.

The update should be available to all users shortly, so don’t worry if you don’t see it immediately.
