(RNN) - A vulnerability in the previous Apple operating system allows hackers to take advantage of the iPhone's Wi-Fi chip, according to BuzzFeed.

But have no fear!

Apple released a new update to the iOS on July 19 that fixes the issue - one that you can download right now through the "Settings" page in your iPhone.

The update - titled iOS 10.3.3 - is only 138.2 MB, so you might have to delete a few photos or videos to make room for it.

Remember that it's good policy to always back up your devices before updating them. Sometimes, software updates can cause data loss. You can do this through Apple's iCloud, which is also found in the Settings portion of your iPhone.
