If you scroll down far enough in the Settings > General > About > Legal section on an iPhone, you'll see a reference to the FreeType license. In my opinion, everyone who has contributed to FreeType should be very proud of the excellent work they've done.

Available for:  iPhone v1.0 through v2.0.2
Impact:  Multiple vulnerabilities in FreeType v2.3.5

Although I can find libfreetype in /usr/X11R6/lib
of Mac OS X, they are not part of frameworks.
I was not aware of that FreeType2 is used as a part
of CoreGraphics.

Well, the iPhone OS X is not exactly the same as the Mac OS X. I guess
on the iPhone it is included somewhere by default.  I don't know for
sure, but it certainly is implied by their message.
