Apple is currently working on fixing the largest security breach in the history of the App Store after hackers infiltrated malware inside genuine apps by fooling developers to download a compromised iOS app making software version. Even though Apple said it has removed apps that contained malicious code, security firms said that some app versions still contained malware. But the good news, for affected customers, is that Apple will now notify you if you have installed apps compromised by the XcodeGhost malware.
More importantly, Apple says that user data is safe, as the code couldn’t have stolen critical personal information such as Apple ID credentials. More →

Cunning hackers from China managed to sneak malware into what’s generally thought of as an impenetrable target, Apple’s App Store. They created a custom version of the Xcode program developers use to create iPhone apps, thus injecting the malware payload right into the apps that Apple staff would later approve.
At least 85 legitimate iPhone apps were infected with malware this way (see this list), most of them targeting the Chinese and Asian markets, as that’s where the malicious version of Xcode was made available to developers. However, other security firms say that there may be hundreds or even thousands of genuine iOS apps that may have been targeted this way. More →

Will we ever be able to rid ourselves of the iPhone’s Stocks app that we never use? Sure, we can dump it into a folder with other little-used Apple apps but that folder is still taking up precious home screen space that could be filled with apps that we actually want there.

Apple fans have been criticizing Android for years, fighting back against “walled garden” claims by suggesting that Android’s open nature makes it far more susceptible to hacks and malware. This is indeed often the case, but if you think Apple’s closed iOS app ecosystem isn’t also vulnerable to attacks, think again. Millions upon millions of iPhone and iPad users were affected by a major App Store hack that was just uncovered, and now we have a list of some of the apps that have reportedly been infected with malware.
Here’s the bad news: There are some very popular apps on this list, and the odds are pretty good that one or more of them are on your phone right now. More →
Apple’s iPhone upgrade cycle over the years has settled into a nice and predictable pattern. Every time Apple introduces an iPhone with a new form factor, it’s followed up by an ‘S’ upgrade that introduces new software and/or hardware features while retaining the same look and feel as its predecessor.
To wit, the iPhone 4s introduced us to Siri, the iPhone 5s brought us Touch ID, and the soon to be released iPhone 6s will bring us 3D Touch. ‘S’ upgrades are the real deal, and a strong case can be made that the iPhone 6s represents the most compelling and feature-packed ‘S’ upgrade to date.

Buying iPhone accessories can be tricky. A lot of times you have to make the choice between high-quality Apple accessories that are painfully expensive, or third-party accessories that are cheaper, but can also be poorly made. When it comes to car chargers, Apple makes the decision simple by not even making its own options. Instead, you have no choice but to buy a third-party charger — but you absolutely must make sure that it’s Apple certified.
For a limited time, Amazon is selling its AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning Car Charger for iPhone, iPad and iPod for just $11.99 shipped. More →
