Here’s why Apple is rushing everybody to update their IOS systems (like right now)

As we issued yesterday in a brief news bulletin, Apple has a message for its users around the world. Following Apple confirming reports of worrisome security flaws, they've now sort of explained exactly what happened. Per CNET, the flaws appear to hit the operating system of Apple devices itself rather than a particular app or something. That makes it particularly concerning for Apple considering without the OS they have no Apple iPhone. This is unheard of for Apple considering they rarely ever admit to such large vulnerabilities on their platform. To update your iPhone (this goes for iPads also you should update that right behind your iPhone) follow these instructions.

Apple purposely slowed older iPhones forcing users to buy newer versions: Report

The confirmation came from Apple directly, after, social media users began to circulate and claim that cell phones (the older versions of Apple's iPhone devices) were intentionally slowed by means of a secret program.   On Friday, lawsuits were filed in cities like Chicago and Los Angeles by multiple users who say they were duped into buying pricier phones -- something they never would have done had Apple been honest from the jump. Ehum, Apple, claims that the problem came because the batteries found in allot of their phones slow down over time because they're no good. The problem? Apple never told that to its customer base, and, instead launched a secret update to mobile devices across the world. An update, that,   would eventually slow down older phones in favor of newer phones. Vi...

Apple comes out against Donald Trump ‘s progressing support for racism

Apple's Tim Cook is apparently a man of vindication and reason, more so, than possibly the President of the United States.  In a memo leaked online by Recode,  Tim Cook, unleashed his angst against  Donald Trump after it appeared that Donald "supported" (at the very least) the idealism of white nationalism rising again in the United States. "What occurred in Charlottesville has no place in our country," Cook writes in the memo, also posted by Recode. "Hate is a cancer, and left unchecked it destroys everything in its path. Its scars last generations."  the memo further reads. Meanwhile,  it has now been confirmed that Apple will donate up to $1m to the Southern Poverty Law Center and various other human rights groups at a "time in which this kind of support is desperately needed" acc...

Apple ‘s stock plunges, investors, are worrisome

Apple, one of the New York Stock Exchange's biggest companies, er, has a problem. In recent days -- the company has seen its first decline in more than 13 years.   Stock prices for the company, perhaps, plunged. Plunged so much, that, Carl  ICahn (think the internet guy)  felt the need to dump all of his stock and essentially run the other way. According to the latest stocks, Apple, is down more than 12% since its much publicized 21 April decline. Investors; and even consumers, perhaps, are quite eager for the release of the next i-Phone.  ICahn's firm announced earlier this month that his firm had dumped the millions of shares he owned in the company. Cook, hasn't exactly proved to Wall Street that he has the chops to keep Steve Jobs' revolutionary legacy going.  Most aren't to keen...

Apple to FBI: You can’t force us to do anything

CALIF --  If you haven't been living under a rock, you've probably heard that the U.S Government is once again trying to invade the privacy of many Americans including the two infamous shooters who  wrecked a San Bernandino social services agency.   Apple, who has notoriously and vehemently refused to cooperate with a federal court order to write code to unlock a phone belonging to a San Bernandino terrorist, has, cited that the feds cannot "force Apple to write code for any reason". The news comes just days after the Justice Department allegedly threatened criminal action against the company, who, they say is "undermining an investigation" into  Farhook and their accomplice.  To date,  federal authorities have not been able to open any iPhone belonging to the terrorist couple. What ...

Here’s how the FBI is trying to force Apple to unlock its iPhone encryption software

For more than a year,  Apple Inc has been engulfed in a pretty ugly legal battle with the Federal Government in the United States over its refusal to unlock its iPhone encryption software -- some of which -- locks millions of phones and ensures security to Apple users.    According to the New York Times, the feds want access to Apple's top secret encryption software and "how to unlock the phone" itself, after a string of high profile drug arrests -- and that of the San Bernandino shooters. The Times reports that the government is using a central 1789 law in their case. However, Apple still refuses.  Things got a little interesting Friday afternoon, er, after it was reported that lawmakers from the Senate Intelligence Committee were reportedly seeking criminal injunctions against compan...
