Supply chain personnel in China have apparently snapped a specifications sticker for the upcoming iPhone SE.
According to the sticker, Apple will drop the “5” from the new handset’s name, sticking instead with “iPhone SE.” The device will be available in a 16-gigabyte capacity and carry an NFC chip for Apple Pay support.
The leaker also seemed to indicate that the iPhone SE will arrive in a 64-gigabyte configuration, with four color choices — presumably silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold. The tipster also wrote that the overall design of the iPhone SE is similar to the iPhone 6s, which matches up with numerous previous predictions.
A new variant of iOS trojan has been found in the wild.
The trojan, named “AceDeceiver”, has been found to infect non-jailbroken iOS devices, was discovered by Palo Alto Networks and is currently affecting iOS users in China.
The malware exploits a flaw in Apple’s FairPlay digital rights management system. It apparently uses a technique called “FairPlay Man-in-the-Middle,” which has been used to spread pirated iOS apps in the past by using fake iTunes software and spoofed authorization codes to get the apps on iOS devices. The same technique is now being used to spread the AceDeceiver malware.
