iOS forensic examiner Jonathan Zdziarski may know more about iPhones than any other non-Apple employee. Yet even he can’t find a reason for some of the mystery features buried within the iOS operating system, which look an awful lot like security backdoors that bypass user-designated data protections.
The features could be there to let Apple — or even the National Security Agency or the FBI — get access to most of your iOS device’s data without you knowing it.
Gossip about Apple’s next iPhone is everywhere. Crave’s Eric Mack has a half dozen things to keep in mind as you watch the rumor mill spin.
Last week, you may have noticed some blog posts about a “leak” of the upcoming iPhone 6 supposedly showing up on Amazon’s Japanese site. While CNET covers quite a few of the latest iPhone 6 rumors with the appropriate caveats and grains of salt, often they’re just too thin or sketchy. In the case of the alleged Amazon Japan iPhone 6 page, we decided to pass.
The iPhone 5 is almost two-years old, leaving many owners yearning for an upgrade to the iPhone 6 this fall. Our iPhone 6 vs iPhone 5 comparison looks at five key areas where upgraders will see a big difference by upgrading to the iPhone 6.
To make this iPhone 6 vs iPhone 5 comparison possible we grabbed a Verizon iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.2 and ordered an iPhone 6 mock-up from China. This is not the real iPhone 6, but it is what case makers think it will look like based on rumors, leaks and specifications trickling out from Apple and Apple suppliers.
