(CNN) - Apple announced a security fix after it was found that hackers might be able to see your private information.

Experts say the patch for the iOS devices prevents hackers from accessing email, instant messages and even bank transactions.

However, they say it is unlikely that anyone illegally accessed that information.

The patch fixes the issue in the most recent software available for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches.

A fix is not yet available for the OS X software, the operating system for apple computers.
