In the wake of the release of several candid celebrity photos, Apple vowed to increase iCloud security. Whoever got hold of and distributed those photos is believed to have done so via Apple’s iCloud, which was trusted to be more secure than has been proven.

iCloud hackers said to have used police’s own tool

This Internet circus doesn't seem to have an end in sight just yet. Now a new player, or rather scapegoat, has entered the arena. Hackers who leaked compromising photos of Hollywood actresses are now believed to have used Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker or EPPB, a forensics software designed exactly for extracting user data from Apple's cloud service and, ironically, supposedly used by government and law enforcement agencies.

iCloud, M7 and Context: WWDC paves way to iWatch

WWDC 2014 is over, and while it may not have brought us new hardware, it did give iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite their official reveal, key software launches in Apple’s master plan.

Blurred Lines: Melding Mac and iOS into one Apple life

There’s more to breaking down the barriers between desktop and mobile than making the UIs on an iPhone and a MacBook look alike, and Apple used its WWDC 2014 opening keynote to hint at how. Continuity came up several times during the presentation, on both the OS X and the iOS sides, explaining how later this year our Macs and iPhones will work together to transfer tasks as you move between them. Yet the potential for Continuity goes far further than just giving you a bigger keyboard to finish your email on.

iOS 8 round-up: Apple paves the way for hardware

Apple’s newest version of their mobile operating system, iOS 8, builds on the look and feel of iOS 7.
