Re: Its also the not-early adopters
Did you miss the list of patches in the article where they showed patches for iOS 15.x (15.7.8) are also available? Patches for iOS 14 are irrelevant, there are no devices that can run 14 but not 15. If you "choose not to run" 15 on something capable of running it when it has been out for almost two years then that's your own damn fault.
We'll have to see if they make patches available for iOS 12 to help out those still using iPhone 5S and 6. They last patched iOS 12 in January so they might but I guess it isn't clear whether iOS 12 is affected by the issue that's believed to be under active exploit.
