Apple has slammed Google for creating a false impression about its iPhones being at hacking risk owing to security flaws that allegedly let several malicious websites break into its iOS operating system.

The security holes were patch in iOS 12.1.4 on February 7, 2019, and there were even news reports right after the patch about the security holes that were closed. Earlier this week, Yonathan Klijnsma, Head of Threat Research at RiskIQ, told ZDNet in a private conversation that the attacks were indeed very targeted, and that Google was wrong in its initial assessment. Despite the competitors between Apple and Google, the Project Zero crew does no longer target Apple alone. However, Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG) said that it found exploits "covering nearly every version from iOS 10 through to the latest version of iOS 12". In a new statement released today, the iPhone-maker accuses Google of generating a "false impression" that its software was a lot more vulnerable to hacks than it actually is. Security is also a centrepiece of Apple's first credit card, the Apple Card, which launched last month. The company said that technical research was posted to help people better understand security vulnerabilities and create better defensive strategies.
