Apple has punted hacker Stefan Esser's app designed to highlight the security posture and running processes on iOS devices.
The app System and Security Info shows detailed data on the state of security including possible anomalies like injected libraries and the state of code-signing and AppStore binary encryption, and a breakdown of any installed jailbreak.
Cupertino wrote in a message to Esser (@i0n1c) that his app was torpedoed from the App Store because it "provides potentially inaccurate and misleading diagnostic functionality for iOS devices".
TIME Magazine named Apple's iPhone the most influential gadget of all time in a list published Tuesday, which included a variety of tech products from the likes of Sony, IBM, HP and other big-name players.
Picked by TIME editors, the "50 Most Influential Gadgets of All Time" runs the gamut of tech products, from home computers to game consoles to portable electronics. A few of the companies — and most devices — are no longer in existence, but their impact has rippled through to industry contemporaries, some of which made it on the list themselves.
Future iPhones are going to be so amazing, you probably haven’t even thought of the features Apple is going to add, Tim Cook claimed in a recent interview.
The Apple CEO appeared Monday on Mad Money in an effort to abate the company’s bleeding stock price following last week’s less-than-stellar earnings call. Cook reassured investors that the rumors of Apple’s demise have been greatly exaggerated once again.
Apple's next flagship iPhone will not only be waterproof and dustproof, but possibly feature a touch-sensitive home button, new rumor claims.
Using a touch-sensitive button could allow the front of the so-called "iPhone 7" to sit completely flush, I4U News reported on Monday, citing Chinese-language stories from DigiTimes and Storm.mg. The device has allegedly just finished its third test phase.
Designing a portable gadget is all about compromise. The main tension is between power and portability: how light can I make this phone without making it unacceptably slow or killing battery life, and how fast can I make this laptop without making the battery and necessary heatsinks and fans too large to comfortably carry around?
