Apple discovered the bug and repaired it after a while. Update your devices' security by installing iOS 17.1 and iPadOS 17.1.
The patch is available for iPhone XS and subsequent models, the second-generation iPad Pro 12.9-inch tablet, the third-generation iPad Air, and the fifth-generation iPad mini.
For the same repair, download iOS 16.7.2 or iPadOS 16.7.2 on iOS 16. The patch now supports iPhone 8 and older hardware. Apple iOS 14 and 15 devices are still vulnerable.
Apple hasn't updated older hardware's Private Wi-Fi Address. We inquired about expanding the repair to previous operating systems with the corporation. If we hear back, we'll update.
There have been no major cases of malicious actors following someone with this problem. As a user, you want to protect your smartphone's security software.
