Apple has revealed that all of iPhones and iPads are affected by a pair of major software flaws.

The flaws, Meltdown and Spectre, have hit processors made by Intel and ARM, which supply technology to Apple for its iOS devices and its Mac range.

In a statement on its website, Apple said: “All Mac systems and iOS devices are affected, but there are no known exploits impacting customers at this time.”

The company has advised iPhone and iPad owners to ensure their software is up to date.

“Since exploiting many of these issues requires a malicious app to be loaded on your Mac or iOS device, we recommend downloading software only from trusted sources such as the App Store,” it said.

Meltdown and Spectre take aim at a device’s processor, with the ability to steal personal details and data.

Apple says it has already tried to mitigate the flaws in iOS 11.2 and that it will offer more updates to iOS soon in a bid to fix the issue.
