Apple Devices Are at Risk Due To the Security Bugs in MAC OS X and iOS

Researchers from the security team of Cisco’s Talos warned that there are many serious bugs in the update, which if left unpatched, could put users a serious risk of hackers.

Before the version 9.3.3 was released, Talos helped Apple patch the bugs in it and presently people have received all the details of the fixes, of which there are 5 remote code execution vulnerabilities. ImageIO, a programming interface which writes and reads image data, is affected by the bug.

The 5 specific vulnerabilities were described by Talos in its post. These vulnerabilities would enable somebody entering malicious code which would activate while OS X procedures some formats of image file: BMP, Digital Asset Exchange, OpenEXR and TIFF. According to the security team, TIFF is the most possible risk as it could be hit by several applications like iMessage, which renders that file format automatically while presents or receives different images in tied arrangement.

iPhone-and-MacBook

These vulnerabilities are quite similar to the Android bug StageFright, which was unveiled last year. Apple devices run very few versions of its OS and therefore some are left behind in the updating cycle. However, some of the attack vectors through iMessage and MMS suggested by Talos stay hypothetical, and in fact those who simulated in Safari and OS X successfully, don’t have a standard profile like multimedia messaging, as reported by MacWorld. The CEO of the security company, Trail of Bits, Dan Guido again adjourns the comparison of StageFright and mentions on Reddit that preparing a misuse for watchOS, tvOS and iOS could possibly take around 6 months.

Apple refused to comment, however the latest versions to fix the vulnerabilities for both iOS 9.3.3 and OS X E1 Capitan were launched on 18th July, Monday, the previous day of the report released by Talos.

Features:

Apple framed top features which have been changed, redesigned or added:

  1. Messages:

This is the most-used app on iOS. Changes are visual and superficial which include emoji. Now you send emoji opening the emoji keyboard and iOS will scan whether that emoji is equivalent to the text or not.

This brand new app of iOS lets you control all your HomeKit compatible smart home apparatus.

  1. Scenes:

This feature collects regularly utilized settings for multiple devices under a single button – thus pressing the Good Night button; you could lock the door, turn down the thermostat, and switch off the lights.

Everybody can join the public version of iOS 10. The public beta will be available for people to download in autumn.

Conclusion:

Apple will sell its one billionth iPhone soon

Steve Jobs, held the first ever iPhone in his hands on 9th January 2007, at that time he wouldn’t have imagined of one billionth units sold out. Now, at the end of 2015 about 896 million iPhones are already sold out and Apple finds itself in a position where it is about to sell its one billionth iPhone device soon. As per analysts, if the Cupertino’s giant sells 50 million units in the first quarter and then another 44 million phones in the second quarter then the company will most probably enter just 10 million short from the billionth sales.

Until the iPhone SE, which is the upcoming 4 inch smartphone of the company suddenly reverses the course and take off, Apple will most likely sell its one billionth iPhone in July. This is the time just three months before Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus get launched in the market.

Over this, Wall Street analysts are betting that one billionth iPhone might get rung up on 20th July this year. Also, Apple sold its one millionth iOS device in November 2014, which was a great victory for the company.

The Apple iPhone sold 2,70000 units in the first two days after their release and then the sales hit 1 million record by the month of September 2007. Apple’s iPhone 3G reported sales of one million units in the very first week of its release, which shocked the industry analysts. This can be compared to the 13 million sales record made by Apple’s iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus models sold in the opening weekend of September last year.

Apple iPhone Night Shift Mode has a Rival App

Apple’s Night Shift mode app for its iPhone devices is designed in a sense to cut out the impact thrown by the blue light on the sleeping patterns of the users. We know that this app recently grabbed attention when the Cupertino’s giant made an announcement to use it as the key feature of the new iOS9 update.

Now, a third party developer which has built an app offering similar kind of features contacted Apple. The developer asked the manufacturer that if its tool can go to the App Store. As per reports, the developer has already been asked by Apple to withdraw it last year.

This third party app is called Flux, and allows the users to switch from blue light to less harmful yellow light while they are using their iPhone and iPad devices in dark. Earlier, this application was only available via the developer website but was removed later on the request from Apple. Now, as the giant has come out with its own version of the app, the developer says that Flux should be allowed back and the developer should get access to the tools atleast to help the company make it better.

The official blog post from this third party developer reads,

“Today we call on Apple to allow us to release Flux on iOS, to open up access to the features announced this week, and to support our goal of furthering research in sleep and chronobiology.” Flux is already available on Mac devices but if it’s ever seen on the iPad and iPhone devices then it most likely will be Apple’s own Night Shift mode. This will leave Flux in shade with the users opting for the built-in app rather than downloading the third party app available.
