NSA reveals why it couldn’t hack the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone 5c

NSA reveals why it couldn’t hack the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone 5c

One of the more surprising aspects regarding the locked iPhone 5c involved in the San Bernardino terrorist attack of 2015 was that the FBI was unable to unlock the device by themselves. What’s more, we would later find out that even the NSA — who the FBI asked for assistance — lacked the requisite tools to unlock the device, a somewhat startling fact given all we know about the NSA’s activities and expertise.

Speaking at a conference on military technology this past Friday, NSA deputy director Richard Ledgett addressed the topic and explained why the NSA was unable to access Syed Farook’s iPhone 5c. And as it turns out, it’s not necessarily that the task was beyond the NSA’s capabilities. Rather, the iPhone 5c wasn’t a sufficiently popular device that would have warranted the NSA’s attention in the first place. In other words, the iPhone 5c was never on the NSA’s radar because the people it had an interest in tracking and spying on were using other devices.

See how the iPhone SE stacks up against the iPhone 6s and iPhone 5s

On Monday, Apple announced the most intriguing addition to its iPhone lineup since the iPhone 5c. Dubbed the iPhone SE, Apple’s new 4-inch iPhone will serve as an entry-level product for the company, but without entry-level specifications. In fact, the iPhone SE is nearly on par with the iPhone 6s in many regards.

This sleek and modern iPhone 5 stand will probably work with the iPhone SE, too

On March 21, Apple is going to unveil its first new iPhone of 2016.

Rumors suggest that the new iPhone SE coming next week will look almost just like the iPhone 5, so why not prepare yourself by getting one of the sleekest and most modern iPhone 5 stands out there? Right now on Amazon, you can get a elago S5 Stand (aluminum) for iPhone 5/5S for just $8 with free shipping. More →

iPhone 4s 5 iOS 9.2.1 Update

iOS 9.2.1 finally ‘fixes’ your old iPhone 4s and iPhone 5

iOS 9.2.1 finally ‘fixes’ your old iPhone 4s and iPhone 5

Apple said that iOS 9 will bring performance improvements to all iOS devices, including older models that were slowed down by the iOS 8 update. However, when all said and done, it turned out that iOS 9 wasn’t able to dramatically increase overall speed, no matter how much optimization it underwent.

Various early tests showed last September the initial version of iOS 9 lagging behind the latest stable version of iOS 8. Since then, Apple released a slew of minor update, with the latest one significantly improving overall user experience on old devices such as the iPhone 4s and iPhone 5. More →

iPhone 5e Specs Release Date

Apple’s new 4-inch might be called iPhone 5e

Apple’s new 4-inch might be called iPhone 5e

More and more reports indicate that Apple will refresh its iPhone line this spring by replacing the 2013 iPhone 5s with a new 4-inch model that will offer the same size to customers looking for compact smartphones while packing newer features. But not all rumors agree on the name Apple will give to this new product. The “iPhone 6c” moniker is the crowds’ favorite so far though “iPhone 7c” also appeared as a potential – probably unlikely – name choice.

However, a new report from China says that Apple will go with the name “iPhone 5e” for the new handset, with “e” standing for “enhanced.” More →

Video: iOS 9 might slow down iPhone 4s, 5 and even iPhone 5s

More and more people upgrade to Apple’s latest iOS release, with Apple claiming iOS 9 is adopted at a faster rate than iOS 8. But that doesn’t mean iOS 9 is a flawless update, as the iPhone maker has already released a first iOS 9.0.1 patch to fix some issues.

On top of that, even iOS 9’s primary focus is improving performance, it appears the new software isn’t necessarily going to make your old iOS device feel any faster than iOS 8. More →
