A closer look at the NSO Group, the organization behind the most advanced iPhone spyware ever released

Late last week, security researchers uncovered what may very well be the most advanced mobile hacking tool we’ve seen to date. Dubbed Pegasus, and created by a relatively unknown Israeli company called the NSO Group, the software in question utilized three previously undisclosed iOS zero-day exploits that, in unison, managed to completely take over and surreptitiously spy on a targeted iPhone.

Apple just released iOS 10 beta 8 and public beta 7

Okay seriously, this is getting a little bit ridiculous now. Apple used to stick to a two-week release schedule for its iOS beta software, but the company just released iOS 10 beta 8 and iOS 10 public beta 7 because… well… why not? iOS 10 beta 7 and public beta 6 were released just seven days ago, so we were clearly due for new builds.

Apple’s next iPhones could capture video footage and fingerprint data of thieves

Being one of the most desirable items on the planet, it’s no wonder that the iPhone is often the target of theft.

New report leaks details on Apple’s upcoming Snapchat rival and other new apps

Smartphone social apps including Facebook, Snapchat and instant messengers have seen tremendous growth in recent years thanks to the iPhone and Android. Apple revolutionized the smartphone business with the iPhone and the App Store, creating a massive mobile software business. But now that iPhone sales are slowing, Apple is looking to monetize its services by launching compelling apps and services for its customers.

According to a new report, Apple plans to go after top smartphone apps with alternatives of its own. The first one will debut this year in iOS 10, while next year’s iPhones might come alongside exciting new camera and social apps that will compete against Facebook, Snapchat and other services.

New study finds iPhones fail far more often than Android phones

The company’s high repeat customer rate can be attributed to a combination of factors that concern iPhones themselves as well as Apple’s industry-leading customer service. Dealing with Apple’s customer care department has always been a pleasure compared to dealing with rival companies, and iPhones themselves have historically been very reliable, offering a consistently smooth user experience that people love.

But now, a new study suggests that things may be changing for the worse where the iPhone user experience is concerned. More →

Upgrading phones every year might be a ridiculous luxury, but if you’re smart about how you do it, upgrading once a year is actually less expensive than upgrading whenever your old device dies.
