Apple is beefing up its Artificial Intelligence tech with the purchase of Perceptio, a small startup that worked on creating advanced AI systems on smartphones.
Perceptio’s specialization was figuring out how to run complex neural network algorithms without needing to share as much user data. That would seem to fall in line with Apple’s goal of providing more robust features for Siri without compromising users’ privacy in the process.
It’s not a trend that gamers are especially ecstatic about, but in-app purchases (IAP) have become a major element of mobile gaming. It’s how many of the biggest games on the App Store stay afloat, but earlier this week, the developers at DigiDNA discovered a coding flaw that could allow hackers to steal thousands of dollars worth of IAP from popular games.
Do you have AirDrop enabled on your iPhone or Mac?
Maybe you'll think again after watching a video made by Australian security researcher Mark Dowd.
In between announcing a Hermès-branded Apple Watch and another incremental improvement to the iPhone during its big event in San Francisco this week, Apple snuck in an Adobe demo. It came during presentation of the iPad Pro, and showed some of the ways digital creators will be able to do even more with their tablet. Hint: it involves using software like Adobe’s new CC brainstorming tool.
That’s definitely a great way to use a 12.9-inch iPad, except for one thing: 64 percent of designers don’t brainstorm with software. They do it with pen and paper.
The largest Apple iCloud raid in history has seen nearly a quarter of a million accounts compromised by malware targeting app pirates.
The hack spree, affecting at least 225,000 valid Apple cloud accounts, is hitting jailbroken iThings – devices that have had Cupertino's strict device security controls bypassed and disabled.
