Apple’s pushing a major iOS security update today that iPhone users will want to download and install as soon as they can.
If you’ve ever owned, borrowed, or simply looked at an iPhone, then you know the device works by responding to the user’s touch. Except when it doesn’t. And that’s apparently happening more and more for some iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners thanks in part to a flaw that can render the devices useless — or simply a $300 flat brick. [More]
It’s been more than four years since Apple last announced updates to its line of MacBook Pro laptops, but there could be changes coming down the line, according to a new report. [More]
A week after Apple finally announced its first bug bounty program, promising to hand over up to $200,000 to hackers who find and alert Apple about security flaws, a private exploit trading firm is offering security researchers a better deal for their vulnerability intel on the tech giant: up to $500,000.

It seems like immediately upon Apple releasing new products, the rumor mill gets to chugging along again, with folks trying to predict what the company will come out with next. It can be hard to stay on top of those rumors, so we thought we’d help. [More]
Where does your mobile phone actually come from? What company makes it? How many people — how many businesses, how many factories, how many hands — were involved in its making? Most of us probably have no idea whatsoever how to answer those questions.
Last November, Apple fulfilled its promise to bring its subscription music service to Android users. Only, that app was simply a beta of Apple Music. Today, the company unveiled its real app. [More]
Apple revolutionized the music market with the iPod and iTunes, then made traditional cellphones and laptops a thing of the past with the iPhone, yet it’s lagging behind Sony, Dish — and soon AT&T/DirecTV — in introducing a cable-replacement live-TV streaming service. Not for lack of trying. In fact, a new report claims that Apple has been trying too hard and has repeatedly talked its way out of giving cord-cutters an Apple video option. [More]
A big tech deal was announced between two international companies today. Japan-based SoftBank bought UK-based ARM for $32 billion, a sentence that’s meaningless to most of us. But put another way, it starts to make a whole lot more sense: the company that owns Sprint just bought the company that makes the parts that make your iPhone actually work.
If hours spent staring at your iPhone/Apple Watch/iPad/Mac isn’t giving you enough from Apple, the technology giant has a new offering in the works, with its first TV show, a reality competition featuring app developers duking it out for featured placement in the App Store. So it’s like Game of Thrones, just with more branding, a bunch of people wielding tech instead of swords, and no brutal battles to the death (we think). [More]
Most of us are probably fairly familiar with the idea of signing up to be (or not to be) an organ donor when renewing our driver’s license. Apple’s working to take the Department of Motor Vehicles out of the equation by pushing organ donor registration with its new operating system. [More]
Apple is having a busy week, according to recent reports: Jay-Z’s streaming music service Tidal could be joining Tim Cook and friends in the near future, while another rival service claims the tech company is blocking update to its apps to push people into the arms of Apple Music. [More]
It looks like Apple is done with the standalone monitor business: the company confirmed it won’t make any more Thunderbolt Displays, so once the existing inventory is sold, that’s all there is. [More]
As it was foretold, so it has apparently come to pass: with the upcoming release of its new iOS 10, Apple will finally let people delete some of those default apps they never use, you know, the ones in your “Crap I Don’t Use” folder. [More]
With Google making its voice-activated assistant becoming increasingly conversational, and Amazon’s Alexa learning how to gauge your emotional feedback, Apple is making its Siri virtual assistant more competitive by opening it up to developers of third-party apps. [More]
