Apple has made iOS 11.2.2 available for the iPhone and iPad, and has issued a supplementary security update for macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 to further deal with the "Meltdown" attack vector and the "Spectre" vulnerability for the first time.

The macOS Software Update is only 142 MB, so it'll download relatively quickly.

The iOS update, 11.2.2, is 75.5 MB.
