“CVE stands for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures, a system maintained by the MITRE Corporation, a nonprofit organization, which publicly records publicly known information security flaws,” Kingsley Hughes explained. So what the phrase ‘non-disclosure of publicly known CVEs’ suggests is that this update may not be about vulnerabilities recorded in the CVEs, but about other security and privacy issues.”

As Alice would say, it gets weirder and weirder. Kingsley-Hughes also commented on the anomaly of battery issues associated with Chinese and Japanese Notes, saying that feedback on battery life in iOS 17.2 was positive and consistent with what I’ve seen. His conclusion: “If this update was made to fix the battery problem, it must have been something special, such as a test or diagnostic code that was left in the beta version and not removed.”

He has another point worth noting. Maybe this new version is just a bug fix and not a security issue. Maybe Apple wants to release these fixes before unlocking iPhones on Christmas Day. “The Updates for iPhone may also be related to the setup process for new devices,” according to the business.
