iOS 7 Lockscreen Bug Lets You Bypass Passcode to Access All Photos, Send Email, Tweet

No comments:



A new bug found in iOS 7, lets you bypass the lockscreen passcode to access all the photos on an iOS device and send emails and tweets, reports Andy Greenberg for Forbes.

Jose Rodriguez, a 36-year-old soldier living in Spain’s Canary Islands, found the security vulnerability and shared it with Greenberg.

Rodriguez has a track record of finding lockscreen bypass bugs in iOS, many of which he says he dug up while killing time in his old job as a driver for government officials. “I had a lot of time to look at the scenery, break the phone or write poetry while waiting for my boss, and I don’t write poetry and already knew the landscape by heart,” he tells me via instant message and Google translate. So he spent hours “trying everything that goes through my head…I submit my iPhone to cruel methods of torture.”

To perform the technique, the user's device must have Control Center enabled on the Lockscreen. First, launch the Timer app from Control Center then press and hold the power button until the power slider appears. As you tap cancel, double press the Home button to bring up the Multitasking switcher. Thankfully, the only app that can be switched to is Camera; however, tapping the last photo taken thumbnail at the bottom left will bring up the entire camera roll. Then tapping any photo will let you email, tweet, or share from the accounts that have been setup on the device.

You can see the technique demonstrated in the video below. We've tried it and verified that it does indeed work as described.

Apple's iOS 7 Launch Caused a Huge Spike in Internet Traffic

No comments:



Sandvine's Better Broadband Blog analyzed Internet traffic yesterday and found that at one North American fixed access operator, Apple's iOS 7 release accounted for 20% of total network traffic.

Upon release at 1PM ET, Apple Updates immediately became almost 20% of total network traffic, and continued to stay above 15% of total traffic into the evening peak hours. What I found most interesting is that the launch noticeably increased the total volume of traffic during peak hours. This presents a unique challenge for operators, since they must engineer their networks for peak demand, and Apple product launches and software updates are infrequent in nature.

Take a look at the chart below to see how traffic levels spiked. An early estimate has 30% of Apple customers already updated to iOS 7.

First iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Teardown Photos

No comments:



iExperts have gotten a hold of an iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c and posted teardowns of both devices next to the iPhone 5.

We encounter a surprise with the 5S. There's an extra cable connecting the Touch ID sensor to the charging port assembly. There's a little metal clip that needs to be removed before the connector can be pried loose.

Notes:
● The batteries: iPhone 5 - 5.45Whr, iPhone 5S - 5.92Whr, iPhone 5C - 5.73Whr
● "Apple Japan" is printed on the iPhone 5S and 5C Batteries. This has never been seen on previous generations batteries.
● Apple have finally addressed the switch failure issue that affects iPhone 4, iPod Touch, iPod Nano 6 and iPhone 5 power switches and changed the design with the 5S and 5C.
The switches have an extra coating that should help hold them together to prevent the failures prevalent in the other models.
● New Charger! It's incredibly compact.

Take a look at the photos below.
