Hackers Held 250 Million iPhones for Ransom to Blackmail Apple

Hackers Held 250 Million iPhones for Ransom to Blackmail Apple

Apple recently received a threat from a hacker claiming to have over 250 million iPhone accounts as well as all the data on those accounts. He sent an email to Apples support team demanding a large amount of money or else he would factory reset 250 million accounts within a few days.

The accounts that were breached store valuable customer data such as their photos, games, apps and music. Now imagine 250 million accounts worth of data, you probably couldn’t imagine it and neither could Apple so they had to take this threat seriously.

Apple Is Planning To Release iPhones Without Any Ports

The Lightning Adaptor Could Be Finally Killed Off and People Will Not Approve!

Apple could be planning on doing something that fans have feared for a while now; they could be finally killing off the lightning port which means that the next iPhone wouldn’t have any ports at all. Fans have always been upset about the removal of the headphone port and some managed to get around this issue by using a lightning port adaptor that allowed fans to still use their wired earphones/headphones. However if the lightning port was also removed then that means that there wouldn’t be any way to connect your favourite earphones. If this leak is true then this proves Apple is going completely wireless and so the decade of wireless charging and wireless earphones would begin.

Apple Has 2 VR Headsets On The Way, LEAKED!

Apple Will Be Joining The VR Headset Market At Long Last!

Apple has been behind on some of the tech crazes for unknown reasons but finally the most requested device from fans could come in 2020. Apple fans have been asking for a virtual reality headset for quite a while now, Samsung has had the gear VR out for years now while Apple still doesn’t have a virtual reality headset. We will discuss some leaks, rumours and the pros/cons of an Apple virtual reality headset.

Apple’s new headset which is code named N301 looks similar to the Oculus Quest which is a virtual reality headset that was released back in May. The new headset from Apple doesn’t have a date just yet for release; however some people have said that we could see the headset release sometime in 2020 with a latest release of 2022.

N301 is able to map surrounding areas using external cameras so you don’t end up bumping or falling into things around you. Employees at Apple have been told that another company will be responsible for the software that will run N301. This means that the Apple engineers will most likely be working on the design of the headset itself instead of the software.

When N301 hits the market it’s expected that another virtual reality product will launch alongside it. Apple is reportedly making plans to release a smaller pair of AR glasses. As for looks we don’t really know much about N301 but current prototypes for the AR glasses look like highly priced sun glasses with thick frames. Another really cool feature that Apple is designing to be in the glasses is a set of lenses that will darken when the user is in operation with the device. This will give the glasses a futuristic appearance and stop people from communicating with you when you are using the AR glasses.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has previously said that he regards augmented reality as “a big idea, like the smartphone,” telling The Independent in 2017: “The smartphone is for everyone, we don’t have to think the iPhone is about a certain demographic, or country or vertical market: it’s for everyone. I think AR is that big, it’s huge.”

Apple believes that augmented reality headsets and glasses will overtake smartphones in a decade because its “that big.” They say that these kinds of headsets will supplant the iPhone which nobody thought was possible. Even the Galaxy Fold which was once labelled the Apple killer failed to beat the iPhone due to very early stages of technology.

AR and VR is struggling

While VR is definitely doing well on powerful computers, the same does not go for mobile phone unfortunately. Handsets are not even half as powerful as a computer and due to this running AR or VR are tough on the components within your device. The gear VR which was highly anticipated failed because of an extremely bad overheat issue, after around 15 minutes of usage your phone would get hotter and hotter until it gave an overheat warning and shut itself down.

Apple’s iPhone 12 LEAKED Already!

Apple’s iPhone 12 Has a Much Better Design Based on a Leak

Now that the iPhone 11 has been revealed and all the leaks for it have been proven true or false, leakers will now start looking into the iPhone 12 or iPhone X2 which could be the name. Apple has seen a drop in iPhone sales with each new iPhone as more people continue to use their older phones since the newer iPhones don’t offer a huge amount in terms of an upgrade.

The iPhone 7 has been the current standard for people to use, this handset while being old is still very good and has all the applications/updates that the latest iPhones do. Apple can clearly see this but they don’t seem to be doing much about it. Last year Samsung had incredible sales for the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, it is expected that the S10 outperformed the iPhone 11 due to the brand new features like an Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.

You Must Delete These Apps From Your iPhone!!!

These Applications Are Malicious and Must Be Removed From Your iPhone

Apple has dropped the ball on reviewing the App store, 17 applications were able to get past the verification stage and made their way onto millions of iPhones. The issue is that these applications were not legit and were designed to steal valuable data from you without notifying or asking for permission. These apps were flagged up as being fraudulent by using adverts and other malicious methods; this was all done behind peoples backs.

While Apple has removed these apps from the App store already, they can’t delete these malicious applications from your iPhones themselves as users retain the right to keep installed apps on their iPhones. This means that if you have one of these apps installed on your iPhone handset then you must delete it or you risk your data being stolen.

If you have financial information stored on these malicious apps then you will need to open them up and remove your information before you delete them from your device, however it’s possible that the damage could have already been done as the company may already have your information saved. In that case you should delete the application as soon as possible once you removed all of your financial information and data.

It looks harmless to me?

While that may be true and the application provided you with the purpose it was downloaded for such as football scores etc. The application in question can hide behind a fake purpose, this means that the malicious application can act and look like it’s legit in order to trick users into thinking that the application they have been using is safe. Behind the scenes however these 17 different apps have been stealing your valuable data and selling it to make money. This goes against Apples own terms and service and so the guilty apps have been completely terminated from the App Store.

Which apps were affected?

The following applications were flagged up by Wandera, if you are not sure what the app icon looks like then observe the image below and make sure to delete any of the apps on your device that match the malicious applications.

The full list of infected apps:

RTO Vehicle Information

EMI Calculator & Loan Planner

File Manager – Documents

Smart GPS Speedometer

CrickOne – Live Cricket Scores

Daily Fitness – Yoga Poses

FM Radio – Internet Radio

My Train Info – IRCTC & PNR (not listed under developer profile)

Around Me Place Finder

Easy Contacts Backup Manager

Ramadan Times 2019

Restaurant Finder – Find Food

BMI Calculator – BMR Calc

“The objective of most clicker Trojans is to generate revenue for the attacker on a pay-per-click basis by inflating website traffic. They can also be used to drain the budget of a competitor by artificially inflating the balance owed to the ad network,” the security firm explains. So if you have these applications installed on your iPhone then please delete them and save yourself the hassle of dealing with the consequences. Let us know your thoughts down below!

Apple’s Newest iPhone is only £400

Apple is Releasing an iPhone that is Actually Affordable On Release

You heard that right, Apple is planning to release its cheapest phone ever. With the latest iPhones increasing by huge amounts of money each year it’s no surprise that people are starting to back off purchasing new handsets each release. This means that Apple earns less and less each year as the price continues to rise.

This trend has to stop before it gets out of control and nobody decides to purchase the new iPhones anymore or any Apple product that sells for a really high amount of money. So the new phone is said to be the successor to the iPhone SE which one of the most successful iPhones in recent memory, it’s most likely going to be called the iPhone SE 2 and will come with some pretty big changes to the design and functions.
