“This is a large cluster of patches for the iPhone,” said Dino Dai Zovi, a security expert who is writing a book on cracking the iPhone told Reuters.

What is unusual is for Apple to issue so many patches at once, analysts have said.

 Security experts at Symantec claim that they say they have not seen any malicious software targeting the iPhone since Apple got into the mobile phone market two years ago.

According to Reuters, Apple rival Research in Motion Ltd recently issued a security patch for its popular BlackBerry, addressing a glitch that had potential to let hackers use the device to break into corporate computer networks.

“Given the breadth of feature and functionality within the iPhone OS, it is not surprising that Apple would have security patches,” said Cross Research analyst Shannon Cross.
