Sony isn’t exactly enjoying smooth sailing in the global smartphone market right now, but it did start an awesome trend. Following the Japanese electronics giant’s lead, a number of smartphone vendors are now focused on making their flagship phones water-resistant. Samsung’s Galaxy S5, the company’s latest hero phone, is a perfect example, and the handset’s water-resistant treatment will end up saving consumers tons of money and plenty of aggravation by helping the phone survive spills and quick dunks.

But what about those of us with handsets like the iPhone or various Android models that don’t feature any waterproofing? As it turns out, there may be a cheap product that can help. More →

Is the ‘iTime’ Apple’s second smartwatch?

As the age of the smartwatch begins, everyone is keeping a close eye on Apple. Considering the outrageous success of the iPhone, analysts and consumers alike believe that Apple might be able to turn the wearable industry on its head with a device that’s both functional and fashionable, but there’s still a lot we don’t know. The situation has become even more complicated this week as Patently Apple reports that Apple recently won a patent for something called the iTime, a wearable device with an entirely different feature set than the rumored iWatch.

Apple’s iPhone 6 launch will be even bigger than anyone imagined

Apple has told suppliers to make between 70 million and 80 million combined 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 units by December 30, The Wall Street Journal has learned from sources familiar with the matter, in anticipation of what will be its biggest iPhone launch ever. Foxconn and Pegatron will start production of the smaller iPhone next month – something recent rumors also claimed – and Foxconn will be the exclusive maker of the 5.5-inch model, which will head to mass-production in September. Both companies are on a “hiring binge,” the Journal says, with Foxconn “hiring workers by the hundreds a day to staff production lines” at their factories in China. More →

How to install iOS 8 beta 4 right now without a developer account

Apple pushed out its fourth beta version of iOS 8 on Monday, and the update came right on time. iOS 8 beta 4 is a huge improvement over earlier betas in a number of ways, offering several new features such as a redesigned Control Center, as well as plenty of bug fixes that make it easier for iOS developers to test their apps ahead of iOS 8′s public release this fall. Of course, the fixes are also greatly appreciated by non-developers who pay $99 for the opportunity to get their hands on Apple’s unreleased iOS software before any of their friends.

As it turns out, iPhone and iPad owners don’t even need to pay for a developer account to install iOS 8 beta 4. More →

Apple: iOS backdoor spying

Apple denies having included a backdoor in iOS or other products

Apple denies having included a backdoor in iOS or other products

An extensive research paper from a security specialist revealed earlier this week that governments and other third-parties with malicious intentions would be able to use certain tools in iOS to extract information from iPhones and other iOS devices, without the user’s consent or knowledge. Apple has already issued a response on the matter, denying the existence of backdoors in its products, and further emphasizing the security and privacy features of iOS. More →

Apple completely changed Control Center in iOS 8 beta 4 – here’s what it looks like

Apple on Monday released iOS 8 beta 4, just as our sources said would be the case. The new build is Apple’s fourth developer preview release of its new iOS 8 software, which will be let loose to the general public sometime in the coming months, likely just before the next-generation iPhone 6 launches. In the meantime, developers can use Apple’s iOS 8 betas to update their apps and build new ones that take advantage of all the new APIs Apple has provided. For the rest of us, iOS 8 gives us a look at all the great new things to come.

Unfortunately, not all of those things are actually great. More →

Apple's iPhone and iOS Security and Privacy

Security researcher: iOS security has been intentionally compromised by Apple

Security researcher: iOS security has been intentionally compromised by Apple

Apple’s placing a lot of emphasis on iOS security (especially when compared with that “toxic hellstew” Android) and on privacy (again, compared to its rival) but it turns out that iOS might not be as secure or private as Apple has led customers to believe. Security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski has a new paper out called “Identifying Backdoors, Attack Points, and Surveillance Mechanisms in iOS Devices,” in which he reveals Apple’s complex tools inside iOS that would allow Apple to share certain user data at the request of law enforcement without the user knowledge.

More importantly, with or without Apple’s help, spying agencies such as NSA and other third parties that are very familiar with how iOS operates can apparently use these vulnerabilities to grab plenty of data from an iPhone, or to install applications for spying and other malicious purposes without the user’s knowledge.
