Apple warns of a critical security error in the new iOS 13
The American company Apple has warned on Wednesday that its iOS 13 and iPadOS operating systems launched on September 19 have a critical error that affects third-party keyboard applications that use their iPhone, iPad and iPhone Touch.
These extensions can be executed independently, but the failure allows some to request permissions and obtain "full access" to applications such as spell checking or the Internet even if the user does not approve those options.
For example, the Google Gboard and the Microsoft SwiftKey could collect information about any text that is written with those solutions, from emails to passwords, explains the TechCrunch portal.
However, the Cupertino firm ensures that this vulnerability does not affect the original iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 keyboards and will correct it in the next update of that 'software'.
Users of Apple products have already reported that two of the most popular iPhone games presented a problem and this company promised to solve that bug in the iOS 13.1 update. which launched on September 24.
Also, before the release of the iOS 13 security researcher detected another vulnerability that allowed us to omit the FaceID or TouchID access code requirements on an iPhone to access contact information.
