Apple releases iOS 14.4.1 and iPadOS 14.4.1 with urgent fix

Apple's latest software update for its phones and tablets is of the very minor variety, but despite that it's probably one you should install right away.

iOS 14.4.1 and iPadOS 14.4.1 serve one purpose, but it's an important one: fixing a bug in WebKit, Safari's rendering engine, that may have lead it, while processing maliciously crafted content, to execute arbitrary malicious code.
