Apple's response about iPhone spyware is a dodge

Cult of Mac Today
Following explosive claims that journalists and human rights activists have been targeted with zero-click spyware on their iPhones, Apple released a statement saying, basically, “Don’t worry, these are targeted attacks and most iPhone users aren’t affected.”
But it’s a dodge. Apple is saying most users are OK because they’re not being targeted.
However, the spyware appears to be capable of infecting even the most up-to-date devices, and we’ve yet to see a technical fix – or even an explanation.
Apple built up a reputation for stellar security, but it is facing a zero-click vulnerability that turns your iPhone into an all-seeing surveillance device. It’s a bit worrying.
This explosive story is ongoing, and we’ll be hearing a lot more about it this week.
