CERT-In’s warning focuses on security vulnerabilities that could affect users of iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, Apple Watches, and even Apple TV.

Several flaws have been identified in Apple products. The alert states that a remote attacker can obtain sensitive information to enter the system, bypass security restrictions, and exploit some of its vulnerabilities.
