Calling all Apple users! There have been important security updates you need to install right away!

The fixes are for the mobile operating system, iOS 7.1.2, which will improve connectivity with iBeacons and fixes an issue associated with data transfers from third-party apps like barcode scanners.

Not sure how to update to iOS 7.1.2? Click here to learn how or go to Settings>>General>>Software Update. Be sure you have everything important backed up, just in case something like this happens. 

OS X users will want to update to Mavericks 10.9.4, which fixes problems that prevented some Macs from automatically connecting to known Wi-FI networks, along with updates to Safari.

Apple TV users want to update to version 6.2. Here are the directions on how to update Apple TV from Apple:

    1. Select Settings > General > Update Software. Apple TV checks for an available update; if one is available, a download message should appear.
    2. Click Download and Install to start the download process.
    3. Do not disconnect your Apple TV during the update process. The Apple TV status light may flash slowly during the update and restart process. This is expected behavior.
