Apple admitted Friday that all iPhones, iPads and Mac computers worldwide are affected by the Spectre and Meltdown processor security flaws but said no customers so far had been affected.

The California-based company said it had already released a patch for the Safari web browser on its iOS-operated devices to protect against Meltdown and would issue another “in the coming days” to “to help defend against Spectre.”

"Since exploiting many of these issues requires a malicious app to be loaded on your Mac or iOS device, we recommend downloading software only from trusted sources such as the App Store," it said in a statement.

The security vulnerabilities apply to all modern computer processors and affect nearly all computers and smartphones, leaving tech companies scrambling to find a fix.
