How to download iOS 12.4.2 update :
The iOS 12.4.2 update can be easily downloaded on eligible devices over the air just open your Settings app, select the General section, and tap on Software Update. Bingo is done.
However, If we talk about the features that iOS 12.4.2 will bring on the devices than it’s unclear what’s included in iOS 12.4.2, but it is likely a security update that adds important security fixes for older devices that weren’t able to get those updates through the newer software. Apple’s release notes say the update “includes improvements, provides important security updates, and is recommended for all users.”
A security support document provided alongside the update indicates that it fixes a vulnerability that could allow a remote attacker to cause unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.
