Weather app AccuWeather caught red-handed sharing your info [UPDATE]

AccuWeather was just caught sending GPS coordinates, Bluetooth switch, and BSSID of local Wi-Fi routers to a third party. Granting this app access to location information on an iPhone has been found to send several pieces of information to data monetization group Reveal Mobile. While AccuWeather has an extremely large userbase with a strong rating on the Apple App Store, its innards seem to be doing something of which users aren't fully aware.

UPDATE: AccuWeather and Reveal Mobile have released a joint statement which includes the following: "Despite stories to the contrary from sources not connected to the actual information, if a user opts out of location tracking on AccuWeather, no GPS coordinates are collected or passed without further opt-in permission from the user." Further info can be found at the end of this article.

iPhone 8 face recognition might be more powerful than expected

Microsoft and its fans may boast that it was using face recognition, via the still young Windows Hello, long before Apple, but the iPhone 8 might have a few things over Microsoft’s and Intel’s relatively older technology.

Today’s iPhone 8 leak is leather

Today’s iPhone 8 leak is leather

The images you're about to look at show an iPhone 8 casing with a leather exterior. The details on the back and within are exceedingly convincing - embossing and tiny bits of text that usually only show up in legit, Apple-made pieces of hardware. While we'd expect this sort of level of detail on a case for an iPhone made by an accessory maker, these details can't legally exist on a 3rd-party case at all.

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.

iPhone 8 ‘Blush Gold’ tipped as name of leaked copper color
