Google employee finds a dangerous vulnerability in the iPhone

Ian Beer, an employee of the Google cyber division, discovered a dangerous vulnerability in the iPhone. This was reported on the Google Project Zero website.
Beer found a dangerous bug in iOS related to zero-day vulnerabilities, that is, malicious systems against which defense mechanisms have not yet been developed. It allows an attacker to remotely connect to an iPhone, taking control of the device over Wi-Fi. So, a Google employee was able to connect to the device and read e-mail, upload photos, and also got access to the camera and microphone.
The flaw was found in AWDL (Apple Wireless Direct Link) — a protocol that iPhones, iPods, Mac computers, and Apple Watch use to communicate with each other. At the same time, the owner of the device will not notice traces of hacking, it will simply reboot and open the cybercriminals access to the content.
According to Beer, the bug was fixed with the release of iOS 13.5 this May. At the same time, it is noted that Apple did not attach much importance to the vulnerability. The company said that most users already have a newer version of iOS, which has fixed this bug.
Earlier, journalists who tested the iPhone 12 with 5G support talked about a serious flaw in the device. According to them, when transmitting data through the fifth generation communication standard, there is a serious load on the battery. According to the author of The Verge, when using 5G, the flagship battery was almost completely discharged in 2.5 hours.
