GrayKey: The best iPhone unlocker is now in the hands of police

GrayKey: The best iPhone unlocker is now in the hands of police

It would appear that there's a new best way to break into a locked iPhone as of this February. Back in February of this year, the startup known as Grayshift sent out an announcement of a new sort of device they'd whipped up. They had a device that apparently unlocked an iPhone - any iPhone - so that said iPhone could be rummaged through and utilized by law enforcement. Or, say, less-than-reputable persons. Of course, they'd never say they were all about such things at Grayshift.

This iPhone is too fancy to exist

This iPhone is too fancy to exist

Today I saw an iPhone that was far too fancy to actually exist in the real world. The hardware inside the device is fine - it already exists as what's currently called "iPhone X." It's just the colors and makeup of the exterior of the device that don't yet come from Apple proper. This isn't one of those all-gold monstrosities from Russia. This is a concept from Martin Hajek.

OEMs naturally want their products to be repaired only by them or at the very least authorized service centers. This could be for various reasons ranging from quality assurance to IP protection to additional revenue. However, consumers naturally gravitate towards cheaper, more convenient options, which sometimes means third-party services. Unsurprisingly, Apple, as before, seems to have found a way to discourage that practice by disabling touch functionality on iPhone 8 units running the latest iOS 11.3 whose screens have been repaired and replaced by unauthorized third-parties.

iPhone 8 plus one lens may mean 3 camera X upgrade

Apple's next iPhone might well add another camera lens to its back if today's rumors have anything to say about it. With the iPhone X already stretching the limits of the front of the phone, we're now to understand that Apple's considering pushing the boundaries of the back. While the Apple x Samsung battle fueled headlines in the past, it might just be time that Apple's most interesting rival switched to Huawei.

A new pair of Apple wireless headphones were tipped this weekend, likely coming to the company's lineup at their next big event. As the company's wireless earbuds seem to have sold extraordinarily well since launch, there's a question of branding in the mix.
