Apple closed an old vulnerability that it itself mistakenly discovered in a recent iOS update

Apple released a software update to fix a problem that it had previously fixed, but then showed itself again in an incomprehensible way.
Note, May 13 this year, an iOS 12.3 update was released that protected Apple mobile devices (iPhone 5S and later, iPad Air and later, as well as the sixth generation iPod touch) from vulnerabilities that could lead to jailbreaking. However, a later iOS 12.4 update unintentionally canceled this fix and again made the devices vulnerable to attack. This forced the company to quickly release the next additional update with a fix.
IOS 12.4.1 update contains a fix for a vulnerability that allows a "malicious application to execute arbitrary code with system privileges."
However, Apple also released watchOS 5.3.1, tvOS 12.4.1, and macOS 10.14.6 updates.
