Jailbreaking iOS devices is fairly common amongst Apple users. After all, if you’re not that big of a fan of closed systems and still want and Apple device, then jailbreaking provides an excellent bridge for your needs. Well, naturally, anything that goes against your device manufacturer’s options enabled in the device comes with it’s risks as well.

While jailbreaking Apple devices has faced relatively few controversies so far, a new software has recently been discovered capable of stealing your Apple ID passwords and wrecking all sorts of havoc. Called AppBuyer, the software connects to a C&C sever prior to installing and then swipes your network API after executing malicious codes. This allows it to gain access to your Apple ID account details.

With6 pre-orders already breaking global records at a staggering 16 million, many users are still left out of the lucky few getting their orders in at time. Well, for those who’re left out, a more thoughtful decision won’t result in harm. As we all know, Apple has launched the iPhone 6 in three colors, Gold, Space Gray and Silver.

These color’s remain the same from Apple’s last year offering of the iPhone 5S. But the iPhone 6 does not look like the iPhone 5S in any way and there are changes made to the front panel of the device as well. With the iPhone 6, if you want a white front panel then the space gray option is not for you. Only the Gold and the Silver color options have the white front panel.

Just yesterday we released a hint found in IDF14 slides that Skylake will feature Dual-IMC tech and while that is unconfirmed, it seems that Intel is pursuing a ‘Universal DIMM’ slot design for notebooks that will be able to accommodate both DDR3 and DDR4 Memory. Universal compatibility like this is always an appreciable gesture and helps the Industry grow at its own pace, rather than forcing it to jump.Intel Skylake Microarchitecture 2H 2015

Intel’s Universal DIMM Initiative in Notebooks Will Make DDR3 and DDR4 Compatible in the Same Slot

So far DDR4 support exists only within the Haswell-E, HEDT platform. However, with this new UniDIMM memory standard, users of the mobile platform will be able to enjoy both DDR3 and DDR4 Memory on the same slot. Prominent AIBs such as Kingston, Micron and many more are fully supporting this initiative. The specs of the standard are as follows:

  • 160 Pin SO-DIMM Memory Interface
  • 69.6 x 30mm AND 69.6 x 20mm

This upgrade to the current SO-DIMM standard will make the notebook market more user friendly and also help drive the sector that most Investor’s care about. Interestingly we have seen motherboards in the past which supported both DDR2 and DDR3 but that was by utilizing multiple RAM slots. The UniDIMM standard will only have one slot for both generations. Currently DDR4 is very expensive but as time passes it will grow cheaper, infact there will come a time when DDR4 is actually cheaper than DDR3!

Apart from the iPhone 6, Apple also announced the Apple Watch at Tuesday’s keynote. A device that had long been rumored to be under the works at Cupertino, the Apple Watch came in three editions, not one. Out of the three, the one that captured the most attention was an 18 carat gold alloy version, dubbed as the Apple Watch Edition uses gold allow which the company claims is twice as hard as regular gold.

Commenting on Apple’s latest smartphone, company CEO Tim Cook said that making a smartphone isn’t simply about increasing screen size. The comments fall in line with Apple’s long held policy of resisting to market changes and consumer demands.

“We could have done a larger iPhone years ago,” Cook said. Larger screened devices have been commonplace in the market for a long time before Apple’s launch of the iPhone 6 four days back. “It’s never been about just making a larger phone … it’s been about making a better phone in every single way. And so we ship things when they’re ready, and we think that both the display technology here, the battery technology, but all — but everything else and the software.”

With the iPhone 6 finally launched and wraps off the Apple Watch things seem have come to a calm in Cupertino’s world. After all, courtesy of the numerous leaks related to it, the iPhone 6 was perhaps one of the most anticipated device this years, both for Apple and Android users alike.

However, just as things seem to be settling down, new word has surfaced related to Apple fabled 12 Inch Retina MacBook. Component manufacturing for the Retina MacBook has already begun according to Taiwanese sources. The ulta-slim 12 inch MacBook was already previously expected to be launched by the company in early 2015.

New Information Suggests 12 Inch Retina MacBook To Come In Three Color Options And Be Launched Next Year

The 12 Inch Retina MacBook is expected to come with several impressive features already. These include a fanless design, a button-less touchpad, Retina display and a new ultra thin from factor. Well, we can expect all of this to be with us by mid 2015. This news comes the courtesy of Atechwebsite.

The site quotes a source close to Apple’s plans. The MacBook Air has already faced delays due to Intel’s next generation Broadwell processors not being available. The most interesting bit of this news is that Apple is now expected to launch the MacBook in three color options. These are Space Gray and Gold, which are similar to the color options available for the iPhone 6.

The MAcBook Air is currently availalbe in screen sizes of 11 and 13 inches, so this new screen size would end up fitting the combination perfectly. Sounds interesting indeed. Let us know in the comments section about what you think.

Ahead of the recent Google password leak, a new Timing exploit has been discovered which can be used to unmask the identities of Google users browsing the web. Just two days back a staggering 5 million Gmail passwords were leaked on a Russian bitcoin forum, resulting in many believing their security had been compromised.

Google however denied the validity of the data posted and claimed that the passwords posted were old and therefore useless. Well, a new vulnerability has been discovered in Google’s document sharing service and Google drive which can be used to unmask the identities of users visiting the website of the attacker.

Security Researcher Andrew Cantino Discovers New Timing Vulnerability In Google Drive

According to Andrew Cantino, Vice President engineering at Mavenlink, the exploit discovered can have several repercussions. In order to exploit this vulnerability an attacker would have to share a document with one or more email addresses but uncheck the option which sends a notification. This gives the attacking site an option to know when someone logged into one of the email addresses the document has been shared with accesses the site.

Microsoft is well on it’s way towards creating Windows 9, the next in it’s series of operating systems. Windows 9 is expected to come with several changes in board and will especially cater towards the needs of those users who preferred the interface of Windows 7.

Some early reports related to the operating system suggest Microsoft is planning to make several changes. In desktop versions of the operating system there will be an option to disable the start screen altogether. Mobile versions of Windows 9 on the other hand will not have a desktop option altogether. Well, some new screenshots of Windows 9 have surfaced today and these help us take a better look at what Microsoft’s got under the hood.

2014 Apple Keynote brought a lot more than just the two iPhone 6 variants and the first ever Watch from the company. It introduced the very latest Apple Pay system that is here to transform the mobile payment system, and perhaps replace the current card-based transaction system – if we are allowed to be too enthusiastic about it. If you buy Apple’s latest iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, or even if you own an iPhone 5s or 5c and pair them with the latest Watch, you can use this mobile payment system by Apple.what is apple pay

What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay stores all of your credit cards in the Passbook app, Apple’s mobile wallet. By using the near-field communication (NFC) technology, it securely transfers data between customers and merchants. Apple was rumored to bring the NFC in the iPhone back in 2010, however, it took the company quite a few years to polish it up and make it useful and secure for everyday transactions. Apple Pay is the wave-and-pay service which makes the transactions swift, easier, and secure as it only requires the customer to simply beam the payment via NFC to the merchant’s POS terminal. The NFC based transactions are further protected by Touch ID fingerprint sensor making the authorization instant.

Tim Cook was quite eager to point out that Apple Pay is eventually meant to replace the current credit card payment system. Considering that the magnetic strip based credit and debit cards being used around the world

Apple has finally set its latest iPhone 6 flagship phone against wide public exposure, and this time, the successor to one of the most cherished mobile phones worldwide comes in two variants; the simple iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6 Plus, which packs a beautiful 1080p Retina HD LCD display, and with all those pixels, it is said that the brand new iPhablet (Of course, it’s not officially called that) “will play games in higher resolution than next generation consoles.” The truth is not at odds, the iPhone 6 Plus really will, and theoretically, it will as well be able to deliver the processing firepower needed to run triple A mobile video games.

Apple’s latest flagship phone is now official and you will soon be seeing the two different variants of it in a lot of hands. Packing several impressive features, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both run on Apple’s latest A8 SoC that delivers overall better CPU and GPU performance compared to the A7 dual-core processor from iPhone 5s. One of the effective iPhone 6 Plus’ features is its beautiful 1080p Retina HD 5.5″ LCD display, which places it under the phablet category, and also empowers it to run games at full HD resolution.

News just broke during the Deutsche Bank 2014 Technology Conference of AMD’s new x86 CPU core.  The CEO of the company Rory Read has just revealed the next generation high performance x86 core that has been referred to as the sister core of K12. The new core is called “Zen” internally by AMD & will debut alongside K12 in early 2016 as we’ve reported earlier.

AMD Core is Back

AMD’s Next Gen x86 High Performance Core is Code Named “Zen”

Rumors of “Zen” have been floating around for quite sometime now but we did not wish to report on it without confirmation. So it’s quite the relief that we got to confirm this for you our readers straight from the mouth of AMD’s top executive.

Rory Read at the Deustche Bank 2014 Technology Conference :

Everyone knows that Bulldozer was not the game changing part when it was introduced three years ago. We have to live with that for four years but Zen, K12 we went out and got Jim Keller we went out and got Raja Koduri from Apple, Mark Papermaster, Lisa sue. We are building now our next generation graphics and compute technology that customers are very interested in and they’ll ( referring to the next generation graphics and compute architecture) move to the next generation node and they’ll be ready to go.

Rory mentions Zen once again near the end of the interview

There’s very few people who know how to create server chips, you know Jim Keller has a lot of experience in that space.
You get Zen and K12. Capture ARM before it happens. I can swim backwards on mobility and try and go into cell phones, when the margins are going down and the competition is tough or we can try and look out and say where are the opportunities ? and Lisa and her team are identifying. That’s how we’ve transformed AMD. Better efficiency, better model, look to the future.

ARM architecture leadership, x86 architecture big leap forward and we do it in a package where we’ve had very good conversations with the OEMs in the server space and with the customers. And we tested it because if we didn’t see that acceptance we would’ve ended the business a year ago. But we saw that opportunity and we saw the opportunity to rebuild that and to do it in a more consistent way and I think the next generation technology will position us. Now we have to execute and deliver.

Well folks, it looks like the iPhone 6 leaks aren’t ready to stop. Even though Apple is all set to launch the iPhone 6 in just 7 hours. All of these leaks about the device make us wonder over here at wccftech that maybe iPhone 6 related leaks will continue well after the device has been launched. Excuse the bad joke, but today’s leak is the most comprehensive one yet so far and has distorted our usually top notch sense of humor.

Coming straight out China (where else really) and spotted by CultofMac, the list fully covers almost all the technical specifications of the device. Apple has seemingly decided to respond to the Galaxy S5’s unfortunate ice bucket challenge, since the first thing that catches our eye is that the iPhone 6 will be waterproof. But that’s not the most surprising aspect of the phone’s durability.

In addition to being waterproof, the iPhone 6 will also be shatter proof. Meaning that all the pesky trouble with breaking your device when you accidentally ‘let it go’ can now expected to be over. It also looks like sapphire glass finally made it on the device despite earlier reports that the material was facing some problems.
