Here it is, the tl;dr of the new Apple iOS 11 security updates.

Apple iOS 11 is available for iPhone 5s or later, iPad Air or later and iPod Touch 6th gen.

If I can count, there’s 15 CVEs that were addressed with the September 19, 2017 Apple iOS 11 release.

These have to do with features like

Exchange ActiveSync,
iBooks,
Mail MessageUI,
Messages,
MobileBackup,
Safari,
WebKit, and Wi-Fi.

Issues included:

Memory corruption,
Spoofing,
Denial of Service,
and more!

Should you download it?  I say so.  There’s enough security built-in that you should.  Make sure to back-up before you do.  I can’t help if it fails 😛
