Apple company describes the update, heavy as it is, as a refinement for bugs and glitches encountered while using iOS 15. On the other hand, an important fix appears in the list of software modifications and it involves Safari.

iOS 15.3 fixes privacy bug in Safari

The flaw was disclosed in the beginning of the second half of January and involves an error in the implementation of IndexedDB, which is an API used by Safari and other browsers installed on iPhone or iPad, with the function of storing identifiers of visited websites. The bug allowed one website to access data about another website, breaking user privacy.

A well-known site that uses IndexedDB is Google, so that information about the user's account is available in other apps of the company itself, such as YouTube, Google Drive and Maps. With the data there, the video service does not need to ask for the login again, when it has already been confirmed in Chrome, for example.

  • iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE (first and second generations)
  • iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone XS and XR
  • iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max
  • iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max
