iOS 11 Touch ID lockdown is sneaky security done right

iOS 11 Touch ID lockdown is sneaky security done right

Apple's iOS 11 has a secret lockout option that temporarily disables Touch ID, a so-called "cop button" that could take advantage of legal loopholes about phone searches. While an increasing number of smartphones have fingerprint readers, and indeed all iPhones have for the past few generations, the idea that not all security systems are created equal goes further than just on-device security. In fact, while Touch ID might be more convenient than a PIN code or password, there are cases when it could be less resilient from legal compulsion to unlock your device.

Today we're getting down to business.

It’s costing Google billions for prime position on iOS

What's three billion dollars between friends (and arch-rivals), right? Google will reportedly drop a cool $3bn into Apple's back pocket this year alone, one analyst firm has suggested, in return for being the default search engine on the iPhone, iPad, and other iOS hardware. Although unconfirmed by either company, it's an indication of just how valuable mobile users are, and how much importance Google places on its role there despite considerable mindshare.

This was the last day of the three-week cycle of Pokemon GO's Legendary Bird release: Articuno, then Moltres, then Zapados.

iPhone 8 screen keeps spilling its secrets

Details on how the iPhone 8's virtual home button will work continue to emerge, as coders sift through the goldmine that is the HomePod iOS firmware. That new iPhone, expected to be one of three handsets Apple launches later in 2017, is believed to be not only the first to use OLED for its display rather than LCD, but also the first to remove the physical home button that has been a mainstay of iPhone since the first-generation model. However, it was unclear what, exactly, Apple might replace it with.

Instagram Live can soon become a two-person show

There is no shortage of live streaming services these days, from popular ones like YouTube and Facebook to sometimes more niche services that very few know about. Most of these services, however, are mostly geared towards mass broadcasters or mass participation. Instagram Live, in contrast was conceived with only one person as the star.
