The first alleged design of iPhone 12 cases leaked this week. These case images show a design that resembles the flat dies of the iPhone 4, but with the notch on the front like the latest iPhone 11. These images should be treated with some skepticism, but they provide a glimpse of what who could be coming.
In the UK, a 22-year-old was charged with trying to blackmail Apple over $ 100,000 of iTunes cards. The hacker claimed he had access to 319 million iCloud accounts, threatening to sell access to the accounts and reset them all. Find the details here.
For the past year and a half, Apple has been working on a massive reconstruction of Apple Maps. Now this deployment seems to be finished. The reconstructed Apple cards show much more detail, with Apple providing all of the data itself rather than relying on third-party vendors.
Apple was struck by a lawsuit filed by a New York doctor for Apple’s irregular heartbeat. The doctor alleges that Apple is using its patented technology and that he contacted the company about a partnership, but without luck.
