Apple knew of iCloud API weakness months before...

A London-based security researcher made multiple reports to Apple that the company's iCloud service was vulnerable to brute-force password attacks months before the revelations that celebrities' iCloud backups were mined for intimate photos and videos. The Daily Dot reports that Ibrahim Balic sent descriptions of the vulnerability to Apple in March in addition to filing a report that the system leaked user data that could be used to mount such attacks. Balic attempted to reach out both via e-mail and through the company's Web-based bug reporting system.

In an e-mail dated March 26, Balic told an Apple employee:

I found a new issue regarding on Apple accounts (sic)...By the brute force attack method I can try over 20,000 + times passwords on any accounts. I think account lockout should probably be applied. I'm attaching a screen shot for you. I found the same issue with Google and I...

Apple: iOS 8.0.1 Fix Coming in the Next Few Days

Following Wednesday's release and subsequent retraction of iOS 8.0.1 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Apple has said that an iOS 8.0.2 is coming "in the next few days." The 8.0.1 update added Health app support, but also killed cell service and Touch ID support on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's good to see Apple addressing the call-free iPhone problem from the iOS 8.0.1 updater, although it would've been better if the problem hadn't been there at all.

Basically a real leather shell, the Leather Case is similar to Apple’s prior-generation leather iPhone 5s Case, only at a higher price, while leaving the bottom of each phone completely exposed. Microfiber on the inside keeps your device from getting scratched during insertion and removal. Five color options include Olive Brown, Black, Midnight Blue, Soft Pink, and (PRODUCT) RED exteriors. Each case is thin enough not to radically change the…

NPD data: Back-to-school Mac sales up 16 percent,...

Data from the NPD group indicates that MacBook sales grew 16 percent year-on-year during the 10-week back-to-school period, measured from 4th July to Labor Day week. The most significant sales were seen during the last three weeks of the period, where sales were up 27 percent.

Overall Mac back-to-school market share climbed from 24.2% last year to 26.8% this year, while Windows fell from 72.3% to 64.8%. The most dramatic growth, though, was seen in low-cost Chrome OS devices, up from 0.2% in 2012 to 3.3% last year and 4.5% now.

It’s interesting to see Mac sales continue to climb despite competition from low-cost notebooks. IDC data last month showed that iOS market share...

Apple offers workaround for iPhones borked by iOS 8....

Apple intended Wednesday’s iOS update to fix a few major problems in the latest version of its mobile operating system, but instead saw an entire category of iPhones disabled by the release. The company quickly pulled iOS 8.0.1 after iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners reported problems with cellular connectivity and Touch ID.

Late Wednesday, Apple posted a workaround for people still struggling to fix their phones. You’ll need to connect your device to your computer to revert to iOS 8, because iCloud backups will send you back to iOS 7. Only iTunes can save you now.

∞ The power of friction

[VIDEO] Bet you’ve never seen this sort of welding before. It’s called friction welding.

Technically, because no melt occurs, friction welding is not actually a welding process in the traditional sense, but a forging technique. However, due to the similarities between these techniques and traditional welding, the term has become common. Friction welding is used with metals and thermoplastics in a wide variety of aviation and automotive applications.

So very cool. Science! [h/t Daniel Mark]

Reports have hit the Internet that some iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users had managed to bend their thin, shiny new iPhones while wearing something as rare as a pair of jeans and putting the iPhone inside a front pocket.

iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus Review Part 1

While every new iPhone launch is among the most anticipated smartphone launches each year, there can be little doubt that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch was the most eagerly anticipated in recent times. The interest centered in large part on a substantial increase in display size putting the iPhone more in line with its competition. However, as Apple is quick to highlight, there is a lot more to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus than their display sizes. It has worked hard to improve the iPhone across the board in order to make it a true generational leap in other key areas. In Part 1 of o...

An Apple support representative has told TNW that iPhone 6/Plus phones that have experienced warping in normal use would qualify for replacement under warranty if they pass a test known as “a visual mechanical inspection.” It should be noted that this is simply one AppleCare rep speaking, and not an official statement by Apple.

That is 100 percent up to the Genius you speak with at the store. There is a test called a Visual Mechanical Inspection that the device will have to pass. If it is within the guidelines, they will be able to cover it. If not, the replacement would be a paid one.

Apple was not able to provide any information on what the test involves, though one commentator below suggests that it is simply comparing the phone to a set of reference photos used to distinguish phones damaged by misuse...

One of the essential draws to open source software should be superior product documentation. Well-written user guidelines are a key strategy that software developers should use to increase an open source project's growth and user adoption.
All too often, programmers finish their last line of code and shove the open source software out the door -- or, more realistically, post it on their website waiting for users to flock to its greatness. Documentation is often an afterthought -- or the software developer does not think about it at all.

iPhone 6 (and 5s) found less bendy than iPhone 6 Plus

Earlier this week it was revealed that if you bend your iPhone 6 Plus, it will bend. This shocking news took the world by storm, but left some people wondering if other phones would also flex under pressure. To answer the question, YouTuber Unbox Therapy attempted to repeat his earlier experiment with iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, HTC One M8, newest Moto X, and Nokia Lumia.

After applying roughly the same force to each of these handsets, he discovered that the iPhone 6 Plus was in fact more flexible than the rest. The Moto X ended up coming out top of the pack, with next to no flexibility at all. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 was also found to be much less “bendy” than...

iPhone 6 Bendgate: The End of Tight Jeans?


Another new Apple product, another "-gate" debacle. This time, it's bendgate. On the heels of the release of the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets earlier this month has come an uproar over an unexpected weakness: In short, when stashed in a pocket of a tight pair of pants, the iPhone 6 Plus bends -- and it doesn't return to its original shape when removed. The subject is fervently being discussed in social media, according to Brandwatch, which found more than 57,000 mentions of it online, primarily by male authors.

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg are on their How Google Works book tour and they got the fun questions from Bloomberg.

At 5:30 in the video:

RUHLE: You mentioned smartphones. How do you feel in the last week when you drive by any Apple store, San Francisco, LA, New York, and there are people lined up around the block? So even though way more people carry Android phones, how does Apple have that desire factor?

SCHMIDT: I’ll tell you what I think. Samsung had these products a year ago.

Amusing.

AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to offer the handset, which also is now available in the Canadian, French, German and British markets. It should be in more than 30 countries by the end of the year.

Apple Yanks iOS 8 Update

alphadogg writes Within hours of releasing an iOS 8 update to address assorted bugs in the new iPhone and iPad operating system Apple has been forced to pull the patch, which itself was causing iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users grief. Reports filled Apple support forums that the iOS 8 update was cutting off users' cell service and making Touch ID inoperable. The Wall Street Journal received this statement from Apple: "We have received reports of an issue with the iOS 8.0.1 update. We are actively investigating these reports and will provide information as quickly as we can. In the meantime we have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update."

Uber app updated with iPhone 6/6 Plus support

If you’re an iPhone 6 user running the botched iOS 8.0.1 update and can’t make a phone call to ask for a ride, Uber has some great news for you today. The company has updated its iOS application with full optimization for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens. The update does not add much else today, but expect an update in the near-future with support for the upcoming Apple Pay payment service.

Commuter uses two pieces — a rubber inner layer and hard plastic shell — to keep the iPhone 6 safe. The rubber layer covers the Lightning port and headphone jack when not in use for extra protection. The case also exposes the Apple symbol, a continuing design choice from Otterbox that doesn’t really appeal at all to us. Users can order separate shell and cover colors to make their own color combinations. Commuter also comes with a stick-on…

Researcher Foils iPhone 6 Touch ID


Apple's Touch ID fingerprint scanner is a step up from passcodes for protecting iPhones, but it's far from totally secure, as a researcher showed on Monday. Lookout Mobile Security's Marc Rogers fooled Touch ID on Apple's new iPhone 6 by crafting a false fingerprint from a do-it-yourself forgery kit that cost about $200 to assemble. Rogers and the Chaos Computer Club performed similar experiments when Touch ID was introduced in the iPhone 5s last year. To create his bogus fingerprint, Rogers first lifted a print off a shiny surface.

App developer Craig Hockenberry has published an article today titled “in-app browsers considered harmful” warning both devs and users of security issues related to apps that take advantage of the feature. “Would it surprise you to know that every one of those apps could eavesdrop on your typing? Even when it’s in a secure login screen with a password field?”

Many apps send users to an in-app browser to do things like authenticate logins for associated services. Think logging into an app using your Facebook or Twitter credentials as highlighted in the proof of concept video above. You might assume that would be as safe as doing so through Safari, but Hockenberry notes that, unlike Safari, it’s...

Update: Apple has pulled iOS 8.0.1 until the cellular connectivity and Touch ID issues are resolved. If you already updated your software, follow our downgrading guide to restore iOS 8.

A bug in the HealthKit tool for
developers of health and fitness apps prevented those apps from being released with iOS 8 last Wednesday. A week later, the fix is in—but the update also seems to be causing problems of its own for some iPhone 6 users.

iOS 8.0.1 fixes a handful of bugs with the new update.

Andrew Cunningham

Update: Some users are reporting that the update is disabling cell service and TouchID buttons on some phones. I can confirm that this happened on my AT&T iPhone 6, though a Verizon iPhone 5 still seems to be getting service just fine. For now we recommend holding off—do not download and install this update yet.

Original story: Apple has just released iOS 8.0.1, the first update to the new operating system that reached the public last week. The update is available through iTunes or as an over-the-air update for any device that runs iOS 8—the iPhone 4S or newer, iPad...

Update: Many users are reporting that cellular functions and Touch ID are no longer working post update, so we would recommend holding off until further notice. Many who have updated their iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5s are reporting no problems, so it appears this problem is likely confined to iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Update 2: The update has been pulled. Apple has issued a statement to Re/code:

APPLE: "We are actively investigating these reports … In the meantime we have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update.”
