    iPhones and iPads can be hacked by using a bug found in the built in Mail app. An upcoming software update will also include a fix to that vulnerability.
    Apple has already released a patch in the beta versions of 13.4.5. The official update will be released in a few weeks. If using a beta version is not possible, ZecOps, the security research firm that found the bug, recommends disabling Mail and using other apps until the update.
    Apple’s default Mail app for the iPhone has a severe security flaw, researchers claim

    I wish there was an alternative I liked to the native iOS email app. I really wish k9 Mail was available.
