iMessage No more Reliable?

According to some reports published this Monday, a team of IT researchers from John Hopkins University has worked out a way to crack open the files sent through the iMessage app. However, it was not at all easy to do so. They spent two whole months in it. The team, under the supervision of Professor Matthew Green made it possible to find out the 64-bit encryption key to open an encrypted image stored on the iCloud.

For stealing the key from the encrypted information carrying it, they developed a software which behaved like an Apple server. By doing so, they were able to get the key from the encrypted transmission.

Once they got the key, they entered it in the iPhone which was able to decrypt the image and it was visible.

Apple’s Action

This process could only target an iPhone with an older version of the iOS running on it but Professor Green said that by modifying the method of attack a little, they could even attack the iPhones with a newer operating system. Apple made immediate efforts and released the iOS 9.3 which is not vulnerable to this sort of attack. According to one of the team members Ian Miers, Apple responded to them very quickly and took serious steps to make the phones safer.

Companies like apple cannot implement the security reforms instantly as they have to put the new systems to test in a number of different expected circumstances. Keeping that in view, the response of Apple towards this research is really appreciable.

Does Apple Have a Weak Security?

The fault that the research team has pointed out is , in no way, a fault with the Apple’s encryption algorithm but just an implementation error, said Bailey, one of the officials of Apple’s security research wing. It just enables you to guess one of the digits in the key and once you do that you can only get the access to a single message, image or a video stored on the phone. To access all the data, you will have to repeat the process for every single item which is virtually not possible. Also, the effort needed to access the data using this process, it is not a viable option for mass-scale hacking.

The iPhones are still way better than the phones which do not use encrypted transmission and this flaw is not something that can affect the routine users as it took two months to crack a single image which means it will require a duration of time longer than the age of universe itself to access all the data on the phone.

Myth of Encryption

Recently, the struggle between Apple and FBI regarding the decryption of some iPhones has gained a lot of public attention. The FBI had declared the encryption on iPhones and Macs to be impenetrable but the Hopkins researchers have shown that it is possible to find flaws in it. Apple has some of the best cryptographic engineers working with them, still the encryption can be broken it makes the other low-end systems totally obsolete when it comes down to encryption.

iPad Air VS iPad Air 2

Apple has always been considered a juggernaut in the world of technology. However, as of late it’s reign has started to come to a close. With so many competitors starting to create new and exciting products, Apple has started to find itself hopelessly outmatched and has thus started to lose its status as the most favourable tech company in the world.

However, if there is one area of tech in which Apple reigns supreme it is in tablets. Apple has always been far and away the best manufacturer of tablets and this has shown in the way it has remained the most popular seller of tablet computers. The competition has simply not managed to match up to Apple.

Apple looks to be continuing its reign as the supreme tablet producer with the New iPad and the latest rendition of the iPad Air. These two brilliant pieces of technology are beyond anything else that exists in tablet computing at the moment.

The iPad Air is sleeker, smarter and more efficient. Two common complaints about it were that the battery life was too short and that it did not have enough processing power. Being the customer care masters that they are, Apple have managed to deal with both issues. They have resolved the battery life problem without compromising on the sleek design of the device. This means that users will be able to enjoy a much higher battery life that will allow them to use their iPad for over 8 hours in a row.

The processing power of this tablet computer has also been greatly improved. In the new iPad Air, you will be able to play a lot of games without the lag that you might have been experiencing in the previous model of the iPad Air. This is important because a lot of users were complaining that using the iPad air was becoming too difficult due to the fact that apps that required more than a moderate amount of processing power did not work well.

Additionally, graphics have been greatly improved in the new rendition of the iPad Air. Graphics have never been a problem with Apple’s iPads, but Apple does have a tendency to improve things even if the previous rendition turned out great. This time around, the iPad Air’s graphics are so crisp and clear that you’d be able to see every detail of the image you are viewing

All in all, it is plain to see that Apple still reigns supreme in at least this area if none other. The world of tablet computers is immensely important, but no competitor can come close to Apple when it comes to producing excellent tablets that look good and function phenomenally. Users would be hard pressed to find a tablet that is as good looking and as functional as the iPad Air, and if they do they would have to compromise on some area in order to get it.
