iOS 11 was released last week, and with it your iPhone and iPad (as long as its one of these models) got a ton of new features. There are so many, that navigating through them all can end up being a pretty daunting, and let’s face it, confusing, task. Not sure how to learn it all? We’ve got your back. A bunch of us at Lifehacker have been putting the operating system through its paces, and have written a ton of great guides to some of the most interesting new stuff.
There’s a new iPhone out in the wild, which means there’s a new teardown from iFixit showing everything that’s going on inside Apple’s latest handset.
Adam Donenfeld, a researcher with mobile security firm Zimperium, has published today proof-of-concept code for zIVA — a kernel exploit that affects iOS 10.3.1 and previous versions.
The zIVA exploit code allows an attacker to gain arbitrary RW (Read Write) and root access. Apple has addressed the eight vulnerabilities at the heart of this exploit package in a security patch it released in May.

Anyone in the information security industry who’s interested in Mac security probably knows who Patrick Wardle is. Apart from being Chief Security Researcher at Synack, he’s also the creator of a number of security tools for macOS, which he makes available for free on his Objective-See project site.
Much like the recent Orchard Road Apple store opening in Singapore, customers formed a queue outside of Taipei's tallest skyscraper overnight for a chance to experience the grand opening festivities. Apple published photos of the gathered crowd to its website shortly after the outlet opened for business on Saturday. The company said thousands of people were in attendance.
Apple may have just made a key acquisition that could help the company create a truly revolutionary augmented reality headset. According to a new report, German eye-tracking company SensoMotoric Instruments has been purchased by an Apple shell company, giving the iPhone-maker access the company’s trove of patents related to eye-tracking glasses and other systems.
There used to be a lot of secrecy behind Apple and its products. During Steve Jobs' reign, the firm was very tight-lipped, allowing very little information in regards to its manufacturing process and products to leak out into the public space before its release.
