Apple document: iOS 8 no longer stores encryption keys

09/18, 10:50am

Should make it harder for government agencies to access user data

Part of Apple's strengthened approach to privacy involves stricter encryption in iOS 8, according to the Washington Post, as well as an Apple PDF document. The latter notes that Apple no longer stores encryption keys for devices as of iOS 8, meaning that even if a government agency has a search warrant, the company is unable to break past the security on a passcoded device. That should protect locally-stored content.

Late on Wednesday, Apple updated its privacy policy web page to feature a letter from CEO Tim Cook outlining new security initiatives, and reiterating the company's recent message that the iPhone maker is in the business of selling products, rather than harvesting data about users in order to target and sell advertising -- and consequently, takes pains to avoid collecting any unnecessary data. In the letter, Cook says that security and privacy are "fundamental to the design of all our hardware, software, and services."

WSJ: iPhone 6, 6 Plus cameras beat Galaxy S5 handily

09/17, 6:11pm

The Wall Street Journal's Geoffrey Fowler has had a chance to take the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung's Galaxy S5 on a test run from a photographic perspective, comparing the built-in cameras on each. On paper, the iPhone models were at a serious disadvantage: the photo modules are only 8MP, compared to the 16 megapixel units on Samsung's flagship smartphone.

The company delved into an extreme amount of research, going so far as to invite watch historians to speak at its Cupertino headquarters. "What was interesting is that it [watches] took centuries to find the wrist and then it didn't go anywhere else," Ive says. "I would argue the wrist is the right place for the technology."
